Interesting "potential" topic: A fat adapted athlete who runs on a higher % of fat for fuel ALSO has a higher TAG concentration intramuscularly. i wonder HOW this differs from the insulin resistant state. Lorne Cordain touches on this with regards to intermittent fasting and hunter gatherers.

All I know Robb is that one of my best athletes consumes high percentages of fat from olive oil, as is standard practice. He gets all of his carbs from veggies and some fruit.

At 160lbs he shoulder presses 180lbs without pause. He did a 4:23 Fran wearing a CBRN respirator two weeks ago.

Funny you would think the low carb state would cause him to suck at cardio vascular events but he's just so well adapted that he is a killer.

Wow, with a respirator. That's insane.
