They said that on ESPN today on what makes him so much better then everyone. They said even compared to other elite athletes he has 50 percent less Lactic Acid in his muscle? He's 4 percent body fat and also has huge hands and a wingspan 5 inches bigger then it should be for that height. These are all things that make him the best.

So my question is why does 50 percent less Lactic Acid make someone better? I'll throw out a guess and say he has more muscular endurance because of this? Because doesnt lactic acid build up in the muscles when they are worked and thats what wears you down?

he might just be a super sayan as well!

i'm an athlete myself and it's quite amazing when you find out that an athlete is good because of genetics. I'm really amazed at what the human body is capable of
