Re: I think these guys may be on to something!

Thanks for the link. I follow this blog quite a lot, they have great articles.

"But what researchers have been looking at recently is whether humans, like that second group of rats, can increase endurance with only a few minutes of strenuous exercise, instead of hours? Could it be that most of us are spending more time than we need to trying to get fit?" -- From the article

This article made me laugh: it's great to see the Times finally catching on. There's lots of mention of crossfit in the comments.
