Abstract

This article describes the mass consumption of masculinity and race within the entertainment landscape in Poland in the years 1850–1939. Focusing on the ever-increasing popularity of strength shows and wrestling fights held in circuses and performed in front of urban audiences, the article intends to demonstrate the strategies of presenting white and black athletes in circus arenas, and to examine the meanings and roles of strength shows and wrestling fights in the collective imagination on racial and gender differences.

Abstract  

The essay discusses, in chronological order, three important black texts on race: DuBois’s 1897 speech “The Conservation of Races,” Charles Johnson’s collection of essays Being and Race (1988) and, finally, Paul Gilroy’s critical assessment of postcolonial identity politics in Against Race: Imagining Political Culture Beyond the Color Line (2000). Though in ways significantly differing, all of these texts struggle to undo the limitations of racialized discourse and, in its stead, introduce new forms of theorizing racial differences. Rather than being grounded in biological or even cultural differences, here race appears to be geared to variations of behavior that need to be conceptualized with respect to highly ideological structures of perception. Since postcolonial texts on race usually respond to longstanding assumptions about the nature and role of racial differences in human society, I begin by briefly delineating the history of the race concept as it evolves from late eighteenth through the nineteenth-century seems appropriate.

Race walking is the technical and athletic expression of fast walking and it can be considered as a type of endurance performance. The purpose of this study was to examine whether 12 weeks of a specially designed training program results in the further training enhancement of endurance performance and the related physiological parameters in already well-trained race walkers competing at the national and international level. The investigation protocol consisted of determining the maximal oxygen uptake (VO2peak) and related gas exchange values using an automated cardiopulmonary exercise system and of determining blood lactate variables (aerobic threshold — LTAer and the maximal lactate steady state — MLSS) during walking with proper technique at 8, 10, 12 and 14 km·h−1 for 4 minutes without rest in between. Thereafter, the speed on the treadmill was increased by 0.5 km·h−1 every two minutes until exhaustion to determine VO2peak. After 12 weeks of a specially designed endurance training, statistically significant increases in VO2peak (61.8±8.5 mL·kg−1·min-1 pre vs. 66.9±9.5 mL·kg−1·min−1 post training; p<0.05) and blood lactate variables (VO2-LTAer and VO2-MLSS; p<0.05) were noted. The obtained results suggest that the applied training program can improve endurance and race performance in previously well trained race walkers.
