  • I hit myself on the bottom of the chin with the bar on the OHP

    I lift for close to 3 years, and that's the first time it has ever happened. I was doing a lot of rounds with the X-fit WOD today, and it was my last back off set with an empty bar. Ouch. Morale: be careful, folks, the most awkward things may happen when in a hurry and tired.

      More proof that Crossfit is out to maim you.

      Feel better, Leida.

        I've always been afraid of that. I've come close. Also to hitting my nose.

          I've done that exact same thing- ouch! Today's WOD is going to force me to face my other big fear- the box jump. Injury from 2 months ago still hasn't healed fully.

            Badkty, I was doing step-ups/step-downs up till now on 24"-30", but I used 12" today for box jumps, and it went well for my 10 rounds. So, fingers crossed for you!

            Hope it won't color into a bruise. I have a PTI tonight!

                  Sorry to hear that folks. And let's all work on training safely and keeping eye on the fatigue!

                    I've done that many times. It's always when I get tired at the end of a workout.

                    Excited about 13.2 tomorrow... total gasser. I suck at box jumps, though.

                      I don't like today's workout I hate these ones that make you split cardio and weights. Those folks had never been to our rec centre. In our place, you get the piece of equipment, you stick with it. Which means that I will be doing all cardio in one shot and 3 sets of the bench in another shot, and wonder if it is effective.

                        Two weeks ago in my group training class we were using kettlebells for a Sumo deadlift into a high pull - and I hit my chin with the kettlebell - youch! Not that long ago I hit my nose with the Olympic bar while doing push-presses - that HURT. I've not been doing this type of work for long (only about 7 months), but hopefully I won't repeat either!

                          I've had injuries that took more than a decade to heal. I am always timid now about doing something that may hurt me, and haven't been injured in ages.

                            I am trying to be careful, and I find that once you get a small injury you think it's nothing, then the next day you get another one... now I interpret it as a STOP sign. One is a freak accident, two in a row = take a rest day. I can still feel it on my chin, but I can't see a bruise, it is probably shadowed, thanks goodness

                              That's why I don't like doing X-fit sprint-type exercises with a lot of equipment. Bodyweight only here

                              Hope your chin feels better soon...>_<
