Did anyone catch Nova Science Now the other day? Watch it here, http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/0403/03.html

I'm sure some of you have heard of the supposed "exersize pill." This segment goes into detail about how it theoritically works. They discuss how fast twitch and slow twitch muscle work and what fuel is used to supply these muscles. I'm curious to know if the show accuratly described these muscle types.

I post this in the powerlifting section because I want to hear from the more knowledgable lifters who understand how muscle development works for strength atheletes. By the sounds of it this pill would seem to be detrimental for strength atheletes. Thoughts?

Watched a bit of it. The idea of an "exercise pill" is soooo ridiculous to me, haha
