A woman takes her daughter to a sports medicine specialist and requests that she determine the percentage of fast and slow fibers in the girl's leg muscles. The parent wants to know if the healthy girl should try out for soccer or cross-county running. Do you think this is a valid reason to test muscle tissue? Why or why not?
I think its a bad omen for the kid the parents are even thinking of doing this.
Any parent taking this THAT seriously is not doing this for the joy and pleasure of their child - as they should be. [ Sports are great and all, but this would be taking it too far. Whether or not the child has good muscles for sports should be secondary to the enjoyment of the activity. The decision to become an
athlete shouldn't be motivated by the fact that the child has good jogging muscles but by whether they take pleasure in playing soccer or doing cross-country running. Most of the more successful athletes in history have usually really loved their sport and it shows in how well they do and how happy they are doing it. ]
