Barry-Prove is a rather difficult word.  How about indicate?  There is a
great deal of interindividual variation floating around.  You could start
by checking out an exercise physiology textbook.  A clinical chemistry
book would give you a cheap and sleazy answer to #1.  Take a drive down to
UT-Southwestern's (where I did my postdoc)library, which should have some
of the texts on the reference shelves.
