Food For Thought
All of this week’s article links will be on the subject of avoiding injuries and continuing to train CrossFit around injuries when they do occur. In athletics and in CrossFit training, injuries will inevitably come up. When you are pushing your limits day in and day out, there will be times where you may push too far. First, and foremost, injuries should be avoided, but when they do occur, it is important to continue to train.
One of the beauties of CrossFit is that it is universally scalable…this includes being scaled to work around and improve weaknesses, lack of flexibility, injuries, and even disabilities (have you seen these guys??) Injuries can be discouraging, but the best thing to do is accept that it happened, try to determine if it was avoidable, do the right things to get healed, AND KEEP TRAINING EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE MEANTIME!
Bad leg or arm? You’ve got another one that works, right? If one side is damaged remember that you can do just about every exercise in the CrossFit tool box using just your good limb. One arm snatches, cleans, and presses! One legged squats, deadlifts, box jumps! In fact, this will likely take your core strength and your overall fitness level and work capacity to a whole new level! This is why we CrossFit in the first place!
Here are some one limbed CrossFit exercises to inspire the injured to keep gettin some!
Bad left arm? Try these
How bout one-legged rowing?
