CASE STUDY •
“Pratik Patel, a research assistant in the FIT Lab, investigated whether conventional aerobic training of CrossFit could deliver a greater positive impact over an eight-week period for obese and sedentary adults. At the beginning and end of the eight weeks, he measured the participants’ ability to process oxygen while running on a treadmill (VO2 peak), 40-meter dash time (speed), broad jump distance (power), max rep push-ups and sit-ups in 30 seconds (muscular endurance), sit and reach distance (flexibility) and stork balance (balance). He found the greatest difference between the two groups was VO2 peak. The CrossFit group used oxygen more efficiently, Patel reports. Both increased their VO2 peak over the eight-week period, but the standard protocol group improved by 7.7 percent. Also, the CrossFit group spent significantly less time exercising. The CrossFitters averaged 38 minutes (+/- 15) per week with 13 minutes (+/- 1) per workout, while the standard protocol group was stuck in the gym for 190 minutes (+/- 11) per week with 63 minutes (+/- 4) per workout.”
