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.
Female, 5'3", 48, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135.
Starting bench press: 30lbs. Current bench press: 75lbs.
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!
i've done that before. not a good time at all
I have a lot of hard miles on my body from before I realized I'm not 100% invulnerable. Now I just think I'm 75% invulnerable. -Mr. Anthony
i've done that! i've also hit myself in the crotch on a power clean. that SUCKED too.
"dean ornish and dr. davis think the palmitic acid our bodies use for fuel while we sleep is poison if we eat it. zero-carbers like charles washington think the oldest fuel in our evolutionary history – glucose - used by organisms a billion years ago and without which the brains of modern mammals cannot survive for more than a few minutes – is an unnatural toxin if you eat it. both views ignore basic facts of medical physiology and defy evolutionary history." - kurt harris
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.
