Hip Replacements
Has anyone has any experience who does Crossfit and who has hip replacements? I would love to start doing CF but am leary that my hip replacements will keep me from doing the WOD, especially since my ROM suffers in deep squats. Any advice? experience?

Re: Hip Replacements
Can be done. Had total hip (left) 04, right resurfaced in 08. Mobility key - need to go slow and scale. My hips didn't hold me back it was other ballistic movements (kipping pullups, box jumps / double unders) which tore/partially tore tendons/ligaments in shoulder & achilles - - so, [B]go slow [/B][B]and scale[/B]. God Bless
