As far as juicing goes, well Crossfit's PED testing program and policy is notoriously lax. Besides, I think all you need is a TRT exemption anyhow. Would be surprised if the vast majority of Masters folks aren't on some form, and personally I dont care if they are on/off.
I am of the same opinion.

The top athletes are tested at the games, good enough for me.

I just hope the games have more interesting programming this year. I havent been a huge fan of the workouts since about 2014.

My owner is a former Games athlete, but hasn't been in a couple years, and didn't make Regionals this year. He got a letter from HQ just recently stating that he needed to make his whereabouts known during a certain period (didn't hear how soon it would be or anything). So, they still monitor even people more "off the radar."

That being said, no testing is going to be perfect. I think they do a decent job and there have been instances of people being caught.

My opinion is that they still only go for the smaller name athletes and kinda turn a blind eye to the big names. There are plenty of big names games athletes that almost certainly juice but HQ won't touch because of publicity. Take Brooke Ence for example which I will be amazed if she is not juicing.

The problem is that even though they are tested, it doesn't mean that they will do anything if they get cought. Since HQ is the sole decision maker, they can catch someone juicing and simply let it slide.

Let's be honest here, do you ever see HQ publicly out someone who is a top Games athlete or a podium contender? Look at all the people they "cought" so far, just a bunch of Games athletes that have no chance of making it to the top and are not high profile enough for anyone to care.

Such a long time coming. I sat at 175# for months and months. Then I finally hit 185#, and quickly followed it by hitting 196# (actually got under 206# that same day). Came just in time for 17.3, and I was able to hit 3 reps at 185# in that workout.

Looking back, the majority of it was just inconsistency of training but I also never spent the required time to understand different parts of the lift and where I was most lacking.

Officially made it into the 200# club and snatching bodyweight, on my 44th birthday to boot:
