In 1917, a young Hugh De Haven suffered life-threatening injuries in his quest to become a World War I flyboy. While recovering in the hospital, he became convinced that crashworthy engineering, intended to protect survivors of accidents, would have prevented his most serious injuries. This insight propelled him into his life's work: the epidemiology of accidents. De Haven founded two influential organizations, the Crash Injury Research project in 1942, studying airplane accidents, and the Automotive Crash Injury Research project in 1953, doing the same for automobiles. Believing that statistical analysis would enable engineers-aeronautical and automotive engineers in particular-to eliminate hazardous design features, he lobbied aircraft and automobile manufacturers to improve their products' safety by applying data compiled from real-world events. Through his work, De Haven was instrumental in developing the study of crash injuries into a legitimate science. © 2013 by the Society for the History of Technology. All rights reserved.

With the recent Conor McGregor scandal (according to http://www.mmafighting.com) * and talks of Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino not being able to make weight (according to http://www.rollingstone.com) *, Sean Wheelock, Ben Askren, and Joe Warren, hosts of LineUp MMA, sat down with Kutting Weight® founder, Dustin Zahursky to discuss the issues of weight cutting and performance enhancement in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. LineUp MMA is one of the leading podcasts in the MMA industry, talking with guests such as Randy Couture, Victor Ortiz, and Miesha Tate. LineUp MMA explores a number of topics each week, all related to the world of mixed martial arts. Recently, the hosts focused their attention on two of the most prevalent topics in the sport: the role of weight cutting and performance enhancement. Dustin Zahursky, a national champion wrestler for Lindenwood University and founder of Kutting Weight® sauna suit clothing weighed in on the discussion. With the desire to be the best, many MMA fighters such as McGregor are going to extreme, unsafe, and potentially illegal measures to make weight and improve performance. Recently, Cyborg’s trainer mentioned how she wasn’t close to her fighting weight. Being so close to fight night and so far from a goal weight could be the motivation needed to turn towards these same taboo methods. There is a clear cut difference between proper weight cutting and extreme weight cutting, which is becoming a problem in the MMA industry. “Proper weight cutting will allow a 5% to 10% reduction of bodyweight with no negative side effects,” Zahursky explained. Extreme weight cutting, on the other hand, is dropping 25 to 30 pounds and the consequences include compromised training, dizziness, nausea, and, in worst case scenarios, hospitalization and death. The other issue in the world of MMA is trying to increase performance without stepping into the gray area of the organization’s rules. With the need to outlast an opponent, MMA fighters are looking for the fastest and most effective way to increase total fatigue time. The answer to both these issues is a sauna suit. As weight cutting and performance enhancement is central to several sports including wrestling, Zahursky was familiar with proper procedures in the sport. With this knowledge, Zahursky set out to create the alternative to extreme weight cutting. This is where the Kutting Weight® sauna suit clothing was born. The sauna suit clothing offers athletes a safe way to effectively cut weight and improve total fatigue time. Dr. Lance Dalleck and his team at Western State Colorado University conducted the studies on the Kutting Weight sauna suit clothing and determined that it was an ideal and safe method for weight cutting, fat loss, endurance enhancement, and cardiovascular health. The results showed metabolic rates to be elevated by 20% while wearing the sauna suit clothing and even after removing it. Subjects also saw an overall greater weight loss of up to 40%. Most importantly, endurance levels were increased up to 61.7%. From these studies, one can see just how safe and effective this method of weight cutting and performance enhancement can be. If top tier fighters are looking for a way to make weight and outlast an opponent without breaking rules, this is it. Zahursky asks that when using the sauna suit clothing to treat it as any other fitness tool. It’s important to be educated on maximum heart rate and start out with short sessions. Most importantly, listen to the body. Be cautious of feelings of light headedness or dizziness. To learn more about the Kutting Weight® sauna suit clothing, read about the studies or get more information about the company, please visit http://www.kuttingweight.com.
