question on building tendons/ligaments/15s

Discussion in 'Hypertrophy-Specific Training (HST)' started by imported_hanutaustin, Feb 26, 2005.

  1. I read that the 15s also serve another purpose by building the tendons and ligaments.

    I would like to know more. Does anyone know of any good articles I could read? My understanding is that lactic acid stimulates something to strengthen the tendons and ligaments... I don't know much more but I would like to.
