    Mark have you come across a study such as this suggesting that vitamin C helps to maintain muscle mass in older people? I don't see anything regarding strength training, maybe it is nonsense.

    I was referring to the mob, not the actual individuals as such, but as I said somewhere before I was never any good at English, and collective nouns were so confusing, such as a murder of crows, a flange of baboons, a clowder of cats and a gym of trainees. Bet the sun is going down over your way, just coming over the horizon here and about 3 degrees C. I am not training today, having an RDO.

    What else might the people with higher lean body mass have in common, besides higher vitamin C?

    Or what do the people with lower lean body mass have in common, besides lower vitamin c? Probably shit nutrition and no exercise habits to speak of. It's hard to isolate one thing like that and say for sure it has this profound effect.

    It's the age-old cause-and-effect/correlation confusion. Science is hard sometimes.

    I use a legal form of performance enhancement. My Mrs reckons she is going to leave me if I go for just one more strength training session. I have never trained so hard in my life!
