Doing a fun Zombie run this morning with mr svc. Dodging a zombie to protect my last flag, landing on the edge of the trail and slid. Into a fall. Road rash on knee/elbow, bad scrape on my hand and broke the glass of my phone. OUCH.

Hope the phone place has something for me today. Washed the wounds (will take a bit longer to clean my pride). Icing the finger to keep down the swelling.

FFB: - Being injured sucks! - The Ankle has been bad enough, but because of the ankle I have stretched/torn/hurt my right side costal ligaments making it hard to breath deeply, cough, sneeze, laugh or move certain ways. Did it do myself because I was favoring one side during a WOD last Friday!

I just wanna feel good and healthy again!

I'm not certain if the post below was meant for me. But if it was, I have never used the bathroom as anything meaningful and have advised my clients to not either.

Though I stopped training people a while back, I'm very aware of what it means to fall into a routine rot. I change my routines literally every two weeks, and workout at the minimum five days a week; about 4 hours of cardio a week and around 4-5 hours of lifting a week :).

Go for what you are comfortable with doing (but when doing it works you to the point of uncomfortable - as in challenges you just beyond what you think you can do). And what you enjoy doing (so that you keep on doing it).

Find something where you can measure progress based on fitness goals (NOT the bathroom scale). Don't get stuck in a rut of doing the same thing over and over again.

I didn't sign up at the gym, as a person for whom fitness and health is paramount, I understand the importance of signing up with experts in the field and checking the information on the business and their trainers.

Maybe I panicked, I don't know. It was so frigging traumatizing!

The trainer is actually CF trainer that was hired by the gym (they stole him from a CF place in the next township). The guy is a reservist, used to live in Ft.Monmouth, but moved since they began shutting the place down. He moved closer to the gym and was offered a position there for a significantly higher pay. Anyway, that's neither here nor there.

I might at some point return to it, for now, no.

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...
