.....or more specifically, your husband. IIRC, he's something of a medical history maven, right?Can he call to mind the name of the pathologist/physiologist from the 1800's (I'm pretty sure) who is reputed to have first noticed the dark meat/white meat on poultry.....and the structural differences between slow and fast twitch muscle fibres?I'm almost pretty sure he was French and I'm a bit less sure that his name began with an *L*. I've asked around, gotten a few folk *Of A Certain Age* as frustrated as I (they almost remember......just like me) and even started attacking the packing boxes in my basement where I'm marginally sure one of my out-of-date physiology textbooks can be found. Not a hugely monumental piece of info if he can't......but I do hate an itch I can't scratch
Not Sheila, but do you mean French anatomist Louis Antoine Ranvier in 1873?Laura
Yes it is, Laura. I knew there was an *L* there somewhere. Thinking it was his surname is likely what stopped me dredging it to the surface.Thank you very much!
Have no idea if it's a name my husband had been familiar enough with to have retained. And as far as folks "of a certain age" go -- we're at least a decade ahead of you! ;-)Cool that Laura was able to scratch that itch!sheila
Have no idea if it's a name my husband had been familiar enough with to have retained. And as far as folks "of a certain age" go -- we're at least a decade ahead of you! ;-)It seems to me that textbooks these days don't seem to have so many of the little historical footnotes that I remember from the texts I used back in the 1970's so I assumed that it'd only be the sort of thing someone of my age or therabouts would come across.I can usually remember stuff like this no problemo but it seemed the more I tried, the further it got buried. My husband couldn't help.....and he's got the sort of brain that retains random trivia too. I asked martybl on the weight training board and he drew a blank too. I was beginning to think it was a figment of my imagination.I've really got to do something about those boxes of out of date books, though.
In case you were wondering why I was wondering, it was to do with my IDC classes.I tend to categorise the type of class I teach under various headings and those that start with a low-moderate intensity with a skill set focus and progress to a higher intensity I call Turkey Training.....slow twitch to fast twitch muscles (dark meat to white) and got to thinking.....
my IDC classes...And that stands for????
Indoor Cycling.With so many different model bikes out, folk've tended to stop using the term Spinning as a generic description. I've been training with a couple of US cycling coaches and they always use the term IDC to destinguish what they do from the arobics on a bike stuff.** When I say "training", I'm talking about honing techniques for coaching, mind, more than trying to make a late in life debut on the pro peloton
