The Wall St. Journal has a piece on Luis Garcia del Moral, the doctor who has been accused of helping Lance Armstrong and his U.S. Postal Service teammates run a covert doping program from 1999 to 2003.
Garcia del Moral, who w Valencia, Spain, denies any involvement, but former Armstrong teammates portray him as the chain-smoking mastermind behind their success. Nicknamed “The Black Cat,” he allegedly told one rider, “you’re not a real professional if you don’t take drugs.”
Besides denying these accusations, the doctor told the Journal that he hopes they won’t hurt the reputation of his other athlete clients, in particular Roland Garros runner-up Sara Errani. Garcia del Moral has been associated with the TenisVal Academy in Valencia, home at various times to Errani and David Ferrer.
Errani’s brother, Davide, told the paper that she had never been treated by Garcia del Moral, aside from one routine cardiac examination. The story overshoots its mark by, as the doctor predicted, citing Errani’s recently improved results without citing any evidence, other than guilt by association, that she doped. Still, the connection warrants more questions from the ITF‘s anti-doping authorities.

QUALITY OVER QUANTITY:Remember that QUALITY will always prevail over quantity. Anyone who tells me they can do a 2 hour movement or plyometrics session is obviously not doing it with the required intensity.
