WADE SUBMITS TO RESEARCH STUDY TO ENHANCE PERFORMANCE
Tue, 08 Nov 2011 12:46 AM EST

Dwayne Wade went to the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, becoming the first athlete tested at the company’s new lab on the campus of IMG Academies in southwest Florida.

“If there’s an edge that we can find,” Wade said afterward, “I want to find it.”Just trying to get myself that edge, so I don’t have to deal with that as much. Hydration is so important, so huge, especially with me. I lose five pounds after each game.

For the better part of a day, Wade went through a battery of tests. Some were typical, such as blood work. Some were not particularly taxing, such as when he simply lay still for a few minutes while a machine scanned his body to determine its composition. Some were arduous, as with the treadmill that could show how quickly he burns through carbohydrates while exercising, and that diabolical, high-resistance exercise bike. Take the data, add it up, and an already elite player for the Miami Heat might be able to get a little bit better. Betting lines

“It’s kind of exciting,” said Dr. John Eric Smith, the associate principal scientist at the lab who monitored Wade’s tests. “My research focus has always kind of been on wanting to know what are the limits of human performance. And having access to athletes like a Dwyane Wade, who’s already on top of his sport. and try to identify ways to make him a little better, that’s exciting to me.”

Can you imagine the implications of this research for sports ,business, politics and the military? Testing and experiments to identify how to enhance human performance have also been the subject of many good science fiction movies.

Our fascination with human performance is quite understandable. Maximizing the human potential is the difference between success and failure. Nutrition and exercise are the focus of the Gatorade research but why not expand the research to address psychological and behavioral elements. The human mind is often the key in performance productivity than the body. The mind turns is the remote control and electrical outlet for the human body. Sports scores

The research findings can make a positive contribution to understanding the link between exercise, physical conditioning and nutrition. Dwayne Wade may be pioneer in his participation in the study. Hopefully for Miami fans the findings will help Wade and the Heat win a NBA Championship.
