    Blood loading/doping?!

    Any of you guys ever try blood doping? You know, where you draw out a pint, wait till your body replaces it, then you put the blood back in. Not considering it, but read a little about it, and am wondering if anyone actually does it...

    I would have to say nope!

    is this what your talking about:
    "Ephedrine is banned in many sports. Blood loading, illegal for Olympic athletes, involves freezing a quantity of blood and then injecting it back into a person before exercise, thus increasing the volume of blood in the body and increasing endurance"

    Interesting concept

    i was reading about pro mtn. bikers and other bicyclists doing that. they'd take a pint of blood from themselves before the race when they were in peak condition, then during the race when they'd be tired at a checkpoint or something they'd go and put the blood back in them so it was like getting fresh blood with all kinds of nutrients and stuff in it. but that got banned awhile back. and another thing they were doing was using erythropoetin to increase their number of red blood cells. they use it in cancer patients to try and get them some energy back, that's what lance armstrong is accused of using, but he was just using it for his cancer, not for training and racing.
