The gym at my school has different information on things pertaining to working out and stuff and I read one write up on sodium bicarb as a supplement. It basically said that adding bicarbonate combate the lactic acid build up in endurance exercises that last something like 45 seconds to 7 minutes. It said the average dose was 4 table spoons but to start with one and work your way up. So has anyone tried this or heard anything about it. In theory it sounds good but I worry about water retention and messing with my electrolytes.
