    Hey Travis!

    With all due respect, none of the movements I listed look like swimming on dry ground. LOL.

    Is tolerance to lactic acid body part specific, or body specific?

    For example lets say we started with an untrained person, then had them train on nothing but a stationary bike at varying...

    I must say I'm surprised at how many seem to rely more on shakes vs whole food.
