heroic dose
 n.— «Combine that dangerous level of commitment with the sense of invulnerabity common to young athletes and it is no wonder that you have many 18-year-olds taking what they actually refer to as “heroic doses” of supplements to try and make it to the next level.» —“Coach kids to their (reasonable) dreams” by Gordon Marino in Northfield, Minn. Christian Science Monitor (Boston, Mass.) Sept. 2, 2005.
