Tomorrow night (Wednesday, November 20th) Dr. Sean Rockett, an orthopedic surgeon and CrossFitter, will be giving a lecture on injury prevention. His lecture is designed to help keep athletes healthy and for them to continue to WOD safely. He will discuss the anatomy of the body, mechanisms of injury, and signs and symptoms of injuries. Topics will include ways to recognize injuries, what to do if you have them, and how to treat them and PREVENT them. This lecture is very valuable and we encourage you all, from novice to seasoned athletes, to attend. They are requesting  a $20.00 cash donation to the American Red Cross at the door. The lecture will start at 7pm. To sign up please click here.

    Dead Lift: 295×2 (new 2RM by 10lbs)
    WOD: 12:27 L2 – I knew the power cleans would get tough fast, but I wasn’t prepared for how difficult the front squats would get, considering I’ve grown to really like them. Good WOD to get back into the swing of things with after a much-needed 5 days off…

    I’d be remiss if I didn’t pass along my thoughts on injury prevention and intent. First, athletes with nagging injuries (read: everyone) should attend this talk on Wednesday. There’s no point in moving like crap and feeling sore because of it. If you’re hurting, there’s probably a good a reason why. Take care of it! Use Wednesday as an opportunity to learn more about how to take better care of yourself. We too often get blinded by short-term goals and lose sight of the fact that, really, we’re all here to help one another to live a fitter, happier, longer life.

    Secondly, fitness is a life long pursuit. Make sure your fitness (and pursuit of fitness) is sustainable. Take some time to reflect on WHY you’re training and WHAT you’re training for. You’re all here for a reason. What is it? Are your goals and training in sync? Your answers might provide you with some interesting perspectives.
