Most of them have made it their life's work to uncover secrets that will give them a sustainable edge. Yes, there are those that cheat and take HGH or steroids or androstenedione but the vast majority of super athletes - especially athletes like ultra marathoners and triathletes rely on more home-spun solutions. The typical cheats just won't work when you're running 130 miles.

The Difference in the Shoes: How different toning shoes work!

Pickle juice and muscle soreness???

For as long as I can remember, those that are in the know have been drinking pickle juice after they workout. Sounds strange huh. Finishing a killer workout or an intense game and sitting down to a few pickles and some brine.

Reading Body Language

Believe it or not, most of the messages we communicate to others are done through body language and vocal tones. Think about it for a second. If you ask someone to do you a favor and he or she responds with a bitingly sarcastic, “Sure; whatever you say,” do you think your favor is going to get done?
