I made it about another mile on my bike and stopped to puke twice before barely making it home. One of the worst experience of my life. In 100 degree weather at that.
Lol, that is awesome (you know what I mean), I will pass that story to my children's children

They measusred a myraid of hormones and other health factors lik e resting serum cholesterol and blood pressure. As well as work output, 1RM, 10RM, lung capacity....
The study concluded that the fast food impared perofmance during the workouts with a noted increase in blood pressure, resting heart rate, stress related hormones. It also showed a decrease in anabolic hormones, strength, time to fatigue.
I don't remember what the study was, or where it was, but you could check Pub-med.
The rest seems logical, but stress related hormones I didn't know about. If Ronald McDonald walked passed me today, I'd kill him.
