Good point SVC - forgot to mention that is not a circuit jump but a one-rep or max type jump.

42" is not a regular circuit jump height at all! That is something you might do as a 1 rep max, and never tired. Jeesh.

How experienced was this trainer? I'd question their judgement/certification. On the other hand, even very skilled & well trained CF athletes mess up on 1 RM attempts.

But that is not a normal height for a woman (even games athletes). Rx box jumps on a circuit would be 20-24" for women, 24-30" for men.

If your exposure to CF is a "corner" in a regular gym, I'd highly recommend finding a real affiliate box and talk to those trainers/coaches/members.

Mr.Fundamentall,

I understand, and I indeed signed up for CF, I pulled my back almost immediately. I had full plans of returning to CF, but not after what I witnessed today. Some of the stuff that they do is just not okay by me.

And you are absolutely correct about Martial Arts, we (hubby and I) trained Kung Fu for a while, and they do teach you to fall correctly.

Sed - That's not good. I'd say they were not coaching her properly, but I was not there.

I missed my first attempt at 42" box jump. I skinned the heck out of my shins (the risk I choose to take to get the PR). But I was cautioned and only after I was able to perform the 38" jump a number of times was I allowed to try the 42"

I don't recall any "fall" training, good question I'll ask tomorrow. I know box jumps are the only thing I've had "falling" issues with in CF. In over a year our box has only had three notable injuries - two were ego driven(one of the owners and another member, both VERY experienced and seasoned Crossfit athletes) and one was an aggravation of an old injury.

Oh, and the dang last step on my basement stairs! LOL I went down like a ton of bricks!

Sed...

Unfortunately, athletic events carry risk. Real risk. Goes for crossfit and for 'regular' gym. I have seen people drop 40 pound dumbbells onto feet. 225 lbs onto their chests. Shouldn't happen, but does.

One of the first things one learns in martial arts training is how to fall, how to take a punch etc. Building those reflexes are essential for safety.

Since I have never done Crossfit generally (or box jumping in particular), is there ordinarily training in how to 'fail safely' at whatever maneuver is being attempted?

Hope the woman does okay.

Thanks...

Today I witnessed a horrible accident at the Crossfit station (room). I walked in to speak to one of the instructors, and waited for him to finish with 3 people, that were doing circuit training. They were doing box jumps (42"). I watched, as one woman jumped, missed, hit her chin, and literally broke her jaw. I was horrified, ran out and got the front desk to get help.

I've seen lots of accidents in the gym during training, but this topped it for me. I thought that even though I pulled my back the last time I tried getting involved in CF, I'd still return. Not happening after this.

Gym for me, normal training.

Double WODs easy when you take an hour in between, they work different muscle groups/different modalities. And they were both relatively short.

Today, this sucked eggs. Gonna have words with the trainer who came up with it (cause afterwards I figured out a much better way to celebrate the owner's birthday).

Joe's BD WOD 2 Deadlifts (175 lb) 1 Power Clean (85 lb) 1 Push Jerk (85 lb) 9 Double Unders 7 Fronts Squats (85 lb) - this is the part that killed most all of us this morning, guys were doing 95 lb, afterwards Mikey changed the girls Rx weight to 75 lb. 7 Box Jumps (20") 21:54 Suppose to be all 1 bar but Mikey (6a trainer) didn't get the memo. When Joe arrived he was perplexed at the double unders. He said Kettlebells would have been more "him". I'm just glad they didn't include Snatch. (Joe has been concentrating on Olifting a lot lately, so that would have fit, but sucked even more).

Double WOD day? Damn! You need to rest too!

Annie always gives me a bum rash! Nothing like Annie coming up on a Friday before a play-date or night at the club...can we say "um, don't look at my ass!" LOL

Yup, survived DT at 95 lb but wasn't pretty. Almost 2 min slower than 85 lb. Damn Hang Power Cleans (other movements unbroken).

Did Annie and gave myself 1 hell of a raspberry rash on my butt (really stung in the shower). Annie: 50-40-30-20-10 Double Unders & ab mat situps.

FBF - Hang Power Cleans - Suck, Suck, Suck!

SVC - you saw my DT - ugh, only 105, but with the ankle and all I guess I can't complain.
