Lisa, snatchin' her heart out

"Its one of the classic mistakes in the history of science."  This quote reflects the 100 year old notion that lactic acid in muscles is bad.  The theory was that lack of oxygen in bloodstream meant lack of oxygen to the muscles, which lead to lactic acid and fatigue. Research now shows that lactic acid is converted from glucose by muscle cells and is used as fuel by mitochondria – the power plant of each cell in the body.  They also theorize that both intense training in shorter time periods increase mitochondria mass – meaning larger power plants.  More power!

Check out an article from the New York Times: Lactic Acid is Not Muscle's Foe, It's Fuel.

  1. luke :

    (sigh) This WOD looks real . . . nice. Just one question. Do we have to do 21 lunges with the right arm elevated, then 21 with the left arm elevated, 18 n’ 18, ect.?

  2. Matt :

    For the lunges, it is 21 total, divided any way you please.
    It’ll be fun… I’ve got a decent story behind this one.
