    Up to 3x 125# on the snatch. For the WOD I scaled down to 75# and did full squat snatches. 12:30.

    For the injury question, I've hurt my back and shoulder multiple times since starting CrossFit back in Jan 2009. The back injuries were caused by poor form doing deadlifts and by carrying a heavy KB with only one hand. My advice to new people is to ramp up your deadlift weight slowly and build up your confidence/form before you push yourself. Whenever you are walking across a room with a heavy KB, pick it up and carry it with both hands so the weight is centered. The shoulder injuries were caused by pushing myself too much doing presses and because I think my shoulder stabilizer muscles are weak. That is why you always see me doing various shoulder exercises during my warmups.

    I entered Crossfit pre-injured (broken collarbone) and am thankful for it, since it has obliged me to take it easy, esp. on overhead lifts. But no new injuries...yet...came closer than ever with Monday's WOD (squat ladder) when I felt my back verging towards the all-too-familiar muscle spasm -- thanks to the previous day's heavy deadlifting -- and stopped only because I have to drive 5 hours this Thursday and knew it would be hell if my back was still tweaking out.
