Studies indicate a disproportionate number of professional athletes are born in the first quarter of the year, and grow up in cities with populations less than 500,000 but greater than 10,000.
The Athlete's Clock
We take a closer look at studies into the effects daily activity and caloric restriction have on animals, and what the results might mean for humans.

Athletes do their best to realize their genetic gifts and hard work in just a few clicks of the clock called competition. This phenomenon is seen through moments in time that serve to define the essence of sports itself.
Having established how much and what endurance athletes should drink to optimize health and performance, we now turn to the defining characteristics of EAH and EAHE.
