"This is my body. And I can do whatever I want to it. I can push it. Study it. Tweak it. Listen to it. Everybody wants to know what I'm on. What am I on? I'm on my bike busting my (!@#$%^&*) six hours a day. What are you on?"
"Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”
“To all the cynics, I'm sorry for you, ... I'm sorry you can't believe in miracles. This is a great sporting event and hard work wins it.”
- Lance Armstrong
He's won SEVEN consecutive Tour De France races
Describes himself as "The most tested athlete in the world"
So far, nothing has been proven except:
He has a Vo2 Max of 83.3mLkg/min (average person has 40-50)
A RHR at 32 bpm (average person is 70-75)
His heart is 30% larger than average
Low lactate levels at below 6uL/kg. Most racers are at 12-20 Ul/kg This means he experiences less fatigue and quicker recover times.
P.S. He accomplished all of this after surviving cancer.
