Re: Wondering if I should continue Crossfit

^This.

Going slow is the key. Don't rush the recovery as you will only set yourself even farther back when you re-injure yourself. I've been dealing with herniated/degenerated L4-5/S1 for over a...

Re: Physical therapy/Sciatic nerve

My Physiatrist required it before spinal injections. He has to have the exact location of the herniation to get the injections into the best spot for them to work most effectively. I've been through...

Re: Physical therapy/Sciatic nerve

David, you need an MRI, period.

I worked in law enforcement for 14 years and now private security, and between wearing the gun belt and riding in a cruiser for 8-12 hours per day, back issues are...

Re: Bulging Disc L3-4, L4-5 - Help please

^^This.

I have bulging/herniated/degenerated discs at L4-L5-S1, and have been dealing with them for over 10 years. I refuse to do surgery, and just deal with the inevitable flare-ups that occur once...

Re: too rigid for CF?

Hans, what do you mean by your strength training background "was not so successful"?

How long did you do strength training, what did your workouts consist of, did you have professional instruction,...

Re: Looking for advice

I wouldn't worry about it either. It is beyond your control. Just do as much as you can in the field in addition to your training, i.e. climb trees/use branches for pull-ups, do sprints, push-ups,...

Re: Pavel's Russian Bear Program with Kettlebells

Interesting Brian, thanks for the blog link. I like KB's and clearly this program worked well for you, but personally prefer abbreviated workouts and more variety. It would be good to use for a time...

Re: Recently recovered from lower back injury and looking to start Crossfit

Peyton,

Your story is similar to mine, and so is the OP's. I have degenerative/herniated discs at L4-L5-S1, and my symptoms are exactly as the OP indicated. The only way to know for sure is with an...

Re: over 40 newbie

Jim, that's awesome! It sounds like you are certainly on the right track to a long and healthy older age.:D

As far as schedules go, I've found abbreviated workouts with more rest days to be key. I...

Re: over 40 newbie

Yes!

When we were younger, it was very easy to tolerate extreme workouts every day without issue. I look back at some of the workouts I used to do and just say "wow". The one good thing about being...

Re: letting the body repair

There are a lot of upper body movements you can do, and they should have nothing but a positive effect on your recovery. I would not do any standing exercises, but anything on a bench or bar should...

Re: Can't Squat or Deadlift

Andrew, well-said.

Reverse hypers or front/back squats are strictly verboten for me. Just a few of either aggravates my back to the point I have to lie down and it takes me days to get over it.

My son is in the AF and based in Fairbanks, Alaska. There is no CF on base, but there is a box in Fairbanks. He did say the Army base there has CF instructors. It is getting more common, but I...

Re: over 40 newbie

Yes. Training smarter is definitely the key, and we must be attune to our bodies and push them hard, but not too hard. There is often a fine line there, and often we cross that line and then pay the...

Re: over 40 newbie

I've found that the older I get, the further the distance between those of us who stay fit and others. That is sad, but it is a fact of life. I am now 51 and have worked out most of my life, and most...
