Get Fat to Improve Reaction Times
Posted 08 April 2016 - 07:49 AM
Fine piece of science. Their methods...
In all, the sums of skin-folds were measured for almost 4000 students. The neuromuscular reaction time was also calculated using a ruler drop test.
...allow for multiple applications of their astute findings. My personal use of that would be getting a wrinklier dog if I wanted that stick to be fetched the fastest.

Hydrostatic Weighing, Air-Displacement Plethysmography, and DEXA (Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry) are the most accurate ways to measure bodyfat. The skin calipers and bioelectrical impedance devices are the cheapest and most convenient methods, which has made them the gold standard testing methods for the cheap & lazy who aren't too concerned with the accuracy of the tests.

Holy shit - this is a game changer!
Totally explain's the fat GM's.
I've been gaining weight and noticed my reactions appear faster. Just don't want to get so fat that I have to move up to IDPA and have to wear fish-net stockings.
Wait, I smell more than donuts...

Being fat isn't to up reaction times..........it's so the SO can't really see around you......if he can't see it then he can't call it!
To everyone one I beat in a match or on a stage. I'm a lard ass half blind screw up who doesn't fire a shot outside of a match.......just how bad do you suck now knowing that.

More bogus science. The ruler drop test has been proven to be an unreliable method in many reaction time tests going back 30 years. Notice the test population was all black youths from similar demographics. Might as well say to be fast one needs to be young, black, have adipose fat tissue, blah, blah, blah...
