After listening to the audiobook version of “The Sports Gene” and learning the importance of hemoglobin and hematocrit, I looked back at my blood work results from last year.
I found that my hemoglobin level was solidly on the anemic side while my hematocrit levels were few percent lower than they had been in previous years.
It occurred to me that it might be a good idea to occasionally get blood work done just to make sure that my blood isn’t limiting my potential performance.
As anyone else do this?
I wonder if taking a multivitamin as insurance might be a good idea as well.
On another note, are there any blood test that tell you how much total blood volume you have? Apparently more is better… hehehe.
