Default Re: Research Question of the Week: Exercise Immunology

There are a lot of studies on this.

Typically, it is not advised for short duration workouts (less than 90 minutes). If you are training longer than 2 hours, as you commonly do in endurance events, then I would advise it for performance. Otherwise, right now, I could not advise it for weight lifters training in short duration workouts. I am not going to be dogmatic about that, but based on my research, those are my current conclusions. I would love to hear others thoughts on the topic though (I know Vlad has done a lot of research/experimentation with this). That is subject to change as I investigate this topic further (a definite goal of mine in the near future).

You can read this post for some issues with that method, here.

Matthew 7:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
