Have you ever seen Dwain Chambers (sprinter) vs. Kevin (body builder) in that sprinting race?
Well Dwain Chambers can run faster than Kevin Levrone certainly, but Kevin Levrone puts in a pretty good showing for a bodybuilder who never touches supersets.
Ignorance is bliss. I will continue to believe that if I put a load of beef on my legs, arse and back (even without supersets), it will make me faster at riding my bike. It is inconceivable to me that having more muscle on these areas is going to make me slower. Are you a sports scientist Pommes? Thought not! I'm not saying the supersets you suggest are a bad idea, but I am saying that they are not strictly necessary to improve my own personal physical performance over short distances on a bike. Agree to disagree if you will. If someone qualified wants to teach me about it I'll listen!
In other news, I'm in the process of trying to order a Fox Van RC shock. I've had enough of my crappy Monarch and can't shell out $18,000 for a CCDB. Maybe I can sell the Monarch on eBay and recoup a bit of the money anyway.
Any idea what that new track in Taichung is like? Apparently it's totally new location, never used before! Have you heard anything about it? I was hoping they were going to use the same track as the last race actually, now I'm going to have to waste a few hours and loads of energy trying to learn the new one. I would have preferred to just rock up, do a couple of runs without pedalling and then have some gas left for the race run. My legs were fucked in the race last time out. I should have done my supersets beforehand. I'm not kidding! I know supersets are the way forward for training your muscles for intense anaerobic work. I'm not going to argue that part with you, but I am going to argue that having more muscle gained by weight training without supersets is going to make me slower rather than faster. It's just not!
