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.
Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
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", 50, Max squat: 202.5lbs. Max deadlift: 225 x 3.
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've done that! i've also hit myself in the crotch on a power clean. that SUCKED too.
Sorry to hear that folks. And let's all work on training safely and keeping eye on the fatigue!
