Firass-
We jsut try to keep things changing...and we notice that hanging out in the lactate/glycolytic pathway has favorable adaptations for both the ATP/CP and aerobic pathways. Have you read the free CF journal?

There is an issue on Metabolic Fitness if you want to continue looking at that subject.

Firass-

They are ALL good! Read through the FAQ which describes the content of each. You may also find Art Devany's work to be of interest:

Thanks for the help guys.

I have been reading the journal and it led me to another site which had this statement.

"The bigger take home message is this: Even for you "power-endurance athletes", it is the consistancy and volume of exercise at 70% to 90% of VO2max in your training program that is going to have the single biggest long term impact on your progress, not the number of workouts in which you achieve complete rigor mortis and cotton mouth!."

I'm not sure exactly what this means. Is he saying that we should not go all out anearobicly all the time?

what does he mean?

thanks

F.}

I think that it is being stated that we don't need to kill ourselves each time we do a workout. Rather push yourself to be staying in a high intensity range where you are almost peaked. Just as power lifters don't go for the gold each time they lift, I don't think we need to completely killing ourselves each time we exercise. Rather we are pushing ourselves hard, in a range just below near death *grin*.
