Front Shoulder Pain with Pullups

My attempts to self-diagnose have led to a bit of a dead-end. I may as well ask the collective wisdom of the board.

Symptoms: Whenever I do *any kind* of pullup( kipping, deadhang, palms-in,...

Re: What's your no-fail pump up playlist?

Apologies for reviving a very old thread, but this x2000. Seems like 95% of the CF community likes a lot of the metal/punk "incoherent screaming" type of music. I wonder why so many people with a...

Re: Why do people dislike Cross Fit?

Three main reasons, the first two from the world of athletics, and the third from the world of everyone else:

1. There is lots of anecdotal evidence that CF is responsible for SLAP tears, achilles...

Re: No More Excuses

Wait, what? Your very first WOD is going to be Murph?

Before you begin, give a courtesy call to the emergency room to let them know that you'll be arriving for rhabdomyolysis treatment. It's the...

Prevalence of athletes in CF

I was browsing a certain thread in the bucket, and came across this claim: "...Seeing as the vast majority of Crossfitters were not competing in athletics before doing Crossfit...".

This claim...

Re: Severe Doms

Sorry to revive this thread, but I figured I'd chime in with my recent experience.

I recently decided to re-join a local affiliate. It had been ~3 months since I've really done a workout...

Re: Kipping Help

My max deadhangs is 11 at the moment. Not spectacular, but should be good enough to start kipping.

Funny you should ask about flexibility, I actually went to a local affiliate's skills session on...

Re: Low Testosterone

You're 23. All of your symptoms, plus your age, point inexorably to "getting out of college and entering the real world syndrome". It's a serious but common disorder indicated by and cased by the...

Re: Kipping Help

I think you missed the point of my earlier post. I've been there, done that. Logging a sum total of 10 hours( say, 10 minute attempts per day, for 60 days )just trying to get a stable swing on the...

Re: Kipping Help

No, of course I don't use a chinup grip. Pronated every time. Biceps and lats are still the limiting factor.



One problem is, as Michael Peterson pointed out, movements like the kip are very much...

Re: Kipping Help

I have exactly the same issue. It's unlikely that your Fran time is any worse than my 13:20. I can knock out the thrusters fairly quickly but most of the time is spent waiting for my biceps and...

Re: ******** vs ????

What are your goals? You measure success here by dropping down to 161#. This is fine if you're 5'5'', but if you're any taller, I guarantee that 95% of the advice here will be "eat more, lift...

Re: scaling

I can't answer for you, but here's an anecdote.

My girlfriend did Grace @ 55lbs at the RSM Barbells For Boobs event, and nailed just under 3:30. It was her first time doing the WOD, and she had a...

Re: Help for Tall Newbie

How tall? One thing you may find is that the sheer physics of crossfit will disadvantage you to certain movements, such as any ground-to-overhead lifts, burpees, squats, etc, since you will by...

Sure. There's this crazy place called the grocery store. You go in there and buy meat and vegetables. Unless you select 14 day aged filet mignon and white truffles every day, chances are it will...

Re: Handstands without natural athleticism?

Sorry, didn't see this until now. Well, it's a few months later and I still can't remain in a handstand for longer than a second or two. I always fall over.

Doesn't matter, though. I ended up...

Re: Too much $$$

It's not that odd. There's no time. If you're in a 6pm class and you have warmup, stretching, strength work, WOD, and foam rolling to get through before the 7pm class, there's no time to work on...

Re: Too much $$$

Re: Feeling out of place in a new box...

Well, CF is not about "community" for those of us who see it as an effective path to strength and health. Most people don't cheer on their physicians or invite their dentists out to barbecues.

Re: Feeling out of place in a new box...

Standoffish? This doesn't sound like an issue with your affiliate at all. You're probably a very outgoing extrovert expecting everyone else to act like you do. Many people don't just randomly walk...

Re: Need Help on Paleo Diet

Put it in your mouth, chew it, and swallow it anyway? That's like asking "how do I increase my desire to do a heavy fran when I'd rather sit on the couch and get drunk?" You do it...
