Actually, I am correct. Yes, belly breathing is natural. Do a little more research and you will understand why natural belly breathing is not optimized. Carmichael taught me TRUE Diaphramatic breathing in the late 80's and it makes a big difference. Again, a little more research and all you armchair riders might give it a go.

So it's kind of like a turbocharger theory of breathing? Like if you can ram more air down to the alveoli and into the blood you'll go faster.

But if the engines can't handle all of that fuel, won't you flood them. You'll get that rich burning like with the muscle cars.:eek:

Seems like both Carmichael and Ferrari were working on the other end of the equation with their top client.

Lance looks a bit like Di Luca, doesn't he?

Another classicomano turned GT winner through the power of "science".

Di Luca looks slimmer, though. Probably because he never learned how to breathe properly.

Wheres that poster who's been going on about how fat he is all season :D

Well I have been one who commented on his fatness, although that was in Feb-March (not recently), and not based on photos, but from riding by him on a number of occasions. Actually, it was less a case of being fat, and more a case that he was no where near the weight being claimed. Armstrong's a pretty stocky guy (although on one occasion I did just have fun calling him a fatty).

Hmm, me wonders about the rapid weight loss tricks of pro cyclists. I have seen a number of racers looking more or less 'normal' and getting ripped in 1-2 months :confused:

Wigans explained it. Gluten-free diet and less sugar in the coffee.

"scientists are looking at an intriguing question: Is it possible for adults to lose weight by having more baby fat?"

Lance was chubby with baby fat.
As usual, Lance is way ahead of the curve.
first higher cadence, now baby fat

Check out this actual WSJ article:
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304506904575180053884870776.html

"The researchers then genetically altered some mice so that they would produce greater amounts of PRDM16. The mice's heat generation and calorie-burning rate went up, too"

Lance looked super skinny on eurosport yesterday with his jersey unzipped. Quite the transformation over a very short time period...

Is there anyone who walks without their knuckles scraping the floor and actually believes that people go from being overweight and overmuscled to slim and trim in two months?

With the right "nutritional suplements"... absolutely.

Yes, anyone who's done any training whatsoever and reaches a certain age, (I'm 45) realizes that this kind of transformation is absolute bs.

That kind of look, (on a normal, non geared up person) corresponds to horrendous performance.

When wrestling and looking like that, you worried about leaving your performance in the warm up, because you felt a little weak after making weight. That was when a person is in their teens and twenties.

This Pharmstrong worship/excuse making, has gotten to the point of being absolutely ludicrous.
