Giving blood pros and cons?
I've been thinking for a while now about giving blood, but recently I've been told that giving blood would be an all-round good thing for me in terms of my strength conditioning.
A post-graduate in biomedical science has informed me that depleting my blood stores will cause the production of new, stronger erythrocytes (red blood cells), which in turn will give me a boost in stamina and promote growth and strength in virtually all areas.
I've never before given blood, and so I was wondering if anyone out there has given blood and noticed any credible effects in their training?
