CROSSFIT STEPS UP DRUG TESTING - BoxLife Magazine

CROSSFIT STEPS UP DRUG TESTING - BoxLife Magazine | Sports Ethics: Jaronik, T. | Scoop.it

It’s one of the most taboo topics surrounding CrossFit, but one that won’t go away. As the sport continues to experience exponential growth worldwide, with increased viewers, sponsorships and prizes up for grabs, questions continue to arise over whether the playing field is really even.

For the newcomers to CrossFit, or the uninitiated who may come across the Games on TV, the exceptional physique and performance on display by both male and female athletes often leads to a healthy dose of skepticism over whether those competiting are indeed “all-natural”. We’ve all heard it from one non-CrossFitting friend or another, but those same questions have started creeping into boxes across the country (and internationally), fueled further whenever notable athletes breach the subject. In a sub 3-minute interview with CrossFit last December, Dan Bailey admitted that he didn’t believe that all the male competitors in the 2013 Games were “clean”. Bailey went on to state that CrossFit’s drug testing “could and should be improved…because the incentive is there and nobody’s perfect, and people will dive into that at some point.” With the sport and competition growing in prominence, isn’t it time that the tests for performance enhancing drugs grow along with it?

CrossFit HQ thinks so.

Five Things You Need To Know About CrossFit - TIME

Five Things You Need To Know About CrossFit - TIME | Sports Ethics: Jaronik, T. | Scoop.it

CrossFit, the high-intensity exercise regimen that has spawned its own ESPN television event – you may have noticed the CrossFit Games — is exploding. At the end of 2012, CrossFit had some 5,000 gyms worldwide. The company expects to pass 10,000 this year.

In the January 20th issue of TIME, you can find an in-depth story on the CrossFit craze, and the controversy surrounding the workout. Before signing up for CrossFit, here are five things you need to know.

1. Its Most Intense Workouts Are Named After People Who Died In War
CrossFit’s most difficult workouts are named in honor of members of the military and first responders who died in the line of duty. An example of a “Hero” workout: the Murph, named for Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2005. The Murph is a one-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, followed by another one mile run, completed as quickly as possible.

Don’t worry: the Hero workouts aren’t assigned all that often, maybe at the top of the month. The core benchmark workouts have female names, like Cindy: 5 pullups, then 10 pushups, then 15 squats. Repeat this cycle as many times as possible in 20 minutes.

She’s mean too.

2. Its Mascot Is A Vomiting Clown
His name is Pukie.

3. Another Mascot Is A Bloody Clown
If CrossFitters overexert themselves, they risk getting rhabdomyolysis, a condition where muscle fibers break down and can cause serious kidney damage. Rhabdo cases are pretty rare: one researcher surveyed 132 CrossFitters, and found no cases; another surveyed 733, and found three cases.

CrossFit acknowledges the risks, and stresses that its trainers shouldn’t push too hard. The company has written about rhabdo on its website, and has even adopted another cartoon mascot: Uncle Rhabdo, an exhausted, bloodied clown attached to a dialysis machine, with a kidney and his large intestine lying on the floor. “People look at that and they get offended and say, ‘You guys aren’t taking this seriously,” says CrossFit spokesman Russell Berger. “And the whole point – it’s supposed to get people’s attention. The last thing we want is somebody who’s uneducated or unaware of this condition giving themselves a serious case of it.”

Andrea Ager: Getting to Know Ms. AgerBomb

Andrea Ager: Getting to Know Ms. AgerBomb | Sports Ethics: Jaronik, T. | Scoop.it

She’s one of the sport’s best known and most admired athletes. Moving from Boulder, CO to California to immerse herself in CrossFit, Andrea Ager has accomplished that and much more. Having competed at the Games in 2011 as part of Team Brick CrossFit, she’s now committed to competing Individual in 2014.

Ager was well on her way to the Games this year, finishing 7th overall in the worldwide Open. Unfortunately her dream to compete on CrossFit’s highest stage was cut short when she made the tough decision to withdraw from the SoCal Regionals after controversy over a judge’s misstatement during the overhead squat event. Though a difficult decision at the time, it was a small stumbling block that hasn’t changed much else for AgerBomb, as she’s referred to by her legion of fans.

Known for her tirelessly long training sessions, the girl who loves to compete has vowed to put herself through an intense off-season competition schedule to keep her mind focused on her ultimate goal. In our interview, Andrea shares her genuine love for the sport and how coaching and her faith have shaped what it means to be an elite athlete in this sport.

From what we know, you’ve always loved working out. Is it true that at age 14 you told your dad you were going to work out every day for a year straight?
AA: (laughs) Yes, that’s very true. I’ve just always loved training and working out. It’s a pretty funny story. I’m Catholic and one night we were talking about what we were giving up for Lent. I thought, ‘Why give up something?’ So I told my dad that I was going to work out every day for a year straight because working out is good for you and fun. (laughs) Talk about the mind of a 14-year-old! During that time, I learned a lot about training. I trained my brother. We’d go to the basement and use my dad’s random gym equipment for an hour every day. I’d make him do random things like 100 bicep curls with a 5lb weight. Weird stuff like that. We thought, ‘Yeah, we’re working out!’ That motivated me to join my high school swim team and to play volleyball. I also ran track all four years of high school and college. I was always involved in sports and it just never stopped.

In college, you focused on track and field. Tell us about your experience.
AA: I did. I ran cross country in college. We had three seasons year-round, so we never took breaks. I got my scholarship for the 400m hurdles…that was my favorite thing on Earth! I also ran the 800m and the 4x400m relay. There were times that I did the triple jump and the 200m. That heptathlete feeling is what reminds me of CrossFit.

So how did you make the transition to CrossFit?
AA: I started CrossFit after college when I felt all washed up and needed something else. Right around the time I thought I was going to be a ‘has been’. I studied Exercise Science and in one of my classes someone did a report on CrossFit. As they were presenting, I had so many questions. After class, I followed them into the hallway and asked ‘How do I go there? Where is it?’ I didn’t even care what it required; I just wanted to start it. I didn’t even know how to CrossFit and I wanted to start coaching. As a coach now, I see how unrealistic that was, but I just wanted to learn everything there was to learn about it. I was like a sponge. I remember spending five hours a day in the gym, all while maintaining a full time job. I dove right in when I started.

Given your background, you’re qualified to answer this, who do you consider the fittest athlete a heptathlete or a CrossFitter?
AA: This is a biased opinion, but I would say the CrossFitter is more well-rounded. I would say though that as a CrossFit athlete you’re always saving yourself, because you know you have another training session, another WOD in competition. A heptathlete has to be more explosive and more focused, maybe… It’s a very difficult question to answer, especially because a CrossFitter lifts heavier, but I’d say that a heptathlete has to push it 100% more often.
