It's Podcast Friday with Univ. Florida's Dr. Mike Reid and freeing those radicals!
Dr. Michael Reid, Dean of the College of Health and Human Performance at the University of Florida joins us in the podcast today.  Dr. Reid has been a long-time pioneer in understanding why muscles work like they do - in particular, Dr. Reid's team was the first to understand that muscles made reactive oxygen species to regulate muscle contraction.  Don't let the last sentence scare you - it's easier than you think especially as Dr. Reid explains it.  And this is an important topic as we understand more and more about what controls muscle fatigue.  It's a fun conversation.  LISTEN NOW!
