Friday's Link: Exercise Myths

Friday, April 06, 2012

I've got several of the Gawker Media feeds in Google Reader, covering quite a few different subjects. Probably one of my favorites (but just not one that I've posted a link to) is LifeHacker. Most of the articles are too geeky to share, but I figured this was appropriate here:

    I still thought lactiic acid caused soreness, but I knew small tears caused soreness too. Hmmmm....

    Welp, most of them are myths. I only have time to counter one of them, and that's the protein one. There are a number of studies that support this. To name a few.
