That results in an accumulation of the final product called pyruvate which is readily transformed into lactate. That lactate then, in […]

Q&A – odd cramps after elliptical

0 Comment

Hey Doc. Question for you. I returned to leg training with a vengeance in November and December, working squats, dead lifts, lunges that had fallen off my routine.

Coronary artery anomalies, myocarditis, marfan Syndrome, […]

The concept of waving

0 Comment

Waving is a method I use to assure my athlete’s growth over time. You might have noticed that when you’re growing, it’s not constant. After 6 to 8 weeks your growth slows down and you must do something differently to get bigger again. This is due to different adaptation processes in the body. Waving is […]

Getting high on concentration curls

Concentration curls are great to get your biceps to scream. Some, however, have problems with the exercise as they have shoulder pain that prevents them to do it properly. There’s an option at the cable tower for those, which I recommend when your shoulder is painful while doing the exercise: Preparation Face the cable grip […]
