  3. I love these researcher press releases stating that their research is new and exciting and disprove old theories in order to try and create an artificial increase in importance of their research.

    I learned that sprinting had nothing to do about metabolic efficiency back in 1978 while a student in Exercise Physiology at the University of California at Davis. That is why we call sprinting an anaerobic exercise....much of the exercise is done using non-oxidative metabolic pathways during a sprint so that the athlete with the most fast-twitch fibers, most muscle power and best mechanics for sprinting will tend to be the best sprinters. Metabolic efficiency hasn't been considered to be important for sprinters for at least 30 years if not longer.....how is this a "classic scientific theory"? Metabolic efficiency is much more important for middle distance and long distance running events. :craig::boxing::bang:

    Wow, classic straw man argument.


    Wow, they used surface EMG. Maybe they will biopsy muscles from elite sprinters and see if they are different from elite distance runners. Or maybe they will read 30 year old basic physiology textbooks.
