I really loved this article. As I stated before my goal as a future personal trainer is to get my clients ready to train on their own. I started lifting or working out when I was 15 because I was getting ready to join the Army. I started working out with a friend of mine and he showed me a ton of exercises to do and what body parts to work out. He was not my trainer, he was just my workout partner. Till this day I have never had a personal trainer. Most of the exercises I do I have either seen on YouTube, a bodybuilding website, or seen at the gym. The article also showed some cool apps that can be used.

"Unfortunately, we always tend to be behind people who are creating these things and using them," said Dr. Alex Diamond, a sports medicine doctor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn. "There's so much money involved in it, they're always able to get a step ahead and we're always trying to play catch up."

Legalise doping or lose the spectacle of sport - ETHICS IN SPORT/HUMAN PERFORMANCE

Legalise doping or lose the spectacle of sport - ETHICS IN SPORT/HUMAN PERFORMANCE | Sport Ethics: Gray, K | Scoop.it

 

Sport, at both international and local levels, seems to constantly be in a doping crisis. It may be time to consider legalising performance enhancers because zero tolerance is clearly not working.

 As strength trainers and conditioning trainers, coaches, or physical therapists -- the professionals who help shape these athletes, we face a decision: "to dope or not to dope."

sujeilly garcia's curator insight, August 16, 2015 9:47 AM

Sport is going through a constant doping crisis. Arguments about the danger of enhancement drugs are still present. 


Read to see what what others think of the topic...

Mark Silva's curator insight, January 13, 9:28 PM

So...because organizations are failing to live by the "zero tolerance" of doping, people honestly think we should consider legalizing the use of drugs and performance enhancing drugs in particular for athletes. Instead of bringing down the standard to meet the athletes, we should be bringing the athletes up to the standard.

Renee Anne Shirley's curator insight, January 19, 2014 12:35 PM

IMO athletes believe that the odds of getting caught cheating are significantly less than the rewards to be gained from doping...until we can lessen the odds we will continue to lose the war! In this video Prof Arne Ljungqvist provides insights into some high-profile doping scandals, including the Ben Johnson scandal and Balco affair. 

Donald Magnuson's curator insight, January 19, 2014 2:43 PM

Despite several high profile cases in the last few years, it is clear that athletes are still willing to risk their careers for the artificial gains from doping and steroids.  Stepping outside the rules for a competitive advantage raises ethical questions for the athletes, their trainers and coaches, and even national team officials and politicians, who see athletic success as proving national superiority.

Jason Hammel's curator insight, May 9, 2015 12:43 PM

No matter the punishment professional athletes continue to take the risk with steroids and other performance enhancing drugs
