Are you sure on this? I know Games competitors are test for PEDs but I don't know the details of which ones. Two years ago they tossed out a couple of affiliate team members for testing positive for a banned substance.

The story was the members took the banned substance in a drink sold at GNC. From the members reputation it sounded like an innocent mistake, but they get the boot anyway which is correct.

If its the same circumstance I am aware of, they weren't tossed, as the event had already ended and was months past at that point. They revoked the team's finishing placement.

Re: "Toning"

That's Annie Sakamoto...yes, she's the namesake of "Annie" (double-unders and situps). I suspect she looks that way from doing a lot more than double-unders and situps.

I think when most girls talk about being toned, they mean this:

Bodyfat -- low enough to have at least a one-pack (you can see the box the six pack fits in, but not necessarily the six pack itself), but not so low the boobs disappear.

Muscle -- enough that guys might say "welcome to the gun show" but not so much that guys start saying "baby's got back."

Yeah, was just a different photo. Mainpage has her on the kttlebell swing how-to. She looked a tiny bit less beastly then I would say.

Maybe in S.F. but in my neck of the woods a little "back" is a good thing so long as it doesn't giggle like jello.

I have small thin female members who came through the door say I don't mind gaining in my legs and back side. Of course they want a flat stomach to go with it.
