CF Study 2019

So I'm super excited to get to participate in another CF Study with LiveP (Laboratory of Integrative Vascular and Exercise Physiology)!  It's similar to the study I did a few years ago (read here), but it has a few changes.   Basically, it's studying the effects of antioxidant supplements on endothelial function and exercise capacity.  
I had my initial visit on 6/25 to get a baseline.  There they did a full body bone density scan, height, weight, lots of lung function tests and rode the stationary bike to my max.  Additionally, they added a new part for testing muscle function and that is done by putting electrodes on my calf and electrocuting me! HAHA!  It does kind of feel like that.  It stimulates the muscle to move like it would in exercise and they are monitoring how that goes.  It's weird to look at your leg and see the calf going bananas when you aren't doing anything, and then trying not to fight the urge to flex or stretch.
