Yet another shoulder thread

Hi all,

For the last few weeks, I've had some tightness/soreness in my left shoulder. I don't want to risk making things a lot worse, without better understanding what is going on. Because of the...

Re: Knee problems after running

Hi Piyush,

That post was from a while ago, and I am completely healed. The pain in my hips appeared after the knee pain.

The hip pain went after a week of foam rolling. The knee pain would only...

Re: Sciatic pain (I think)

Hey Jim and Thomas,

Just to be clear - I don't think I have Sciatica itself. I understand that's something that occurs because of tightness/posture, and is not the result of a trauma. My doctor...

Re: Knee problems after running

I know it's been a while, but I just wanted to say thanks to all for the advice.

I haven't ran for the last couple of months, and been doing a lot of foam rolling and stretching. I felt ready to...

Re: Sciatic pain (I think)

OK, I emailed my doctor about it. It may not have been a crunch; that's just how I remember it. It definitely was something because that night I did try to ice it.

Re: Sciatic pain (I think)

Thanks for that tip Matt. I have not tried that stretch but will do so.

As for getting stuff checked out, I'm always getting stuff pulled/pushed/dinged. So I usually avoid going to the doctor...

Sciatic pain (I think)

I think I've pinched my Sciatic nerve, and have been doing some research on these forums to determine what I should and shouldn't be doing.

SYMPTOMS
I get a sharp, searing pain (like being...

Re: CFSB - Ask your questions here!

I don't think you can combine strength training with endurance simultaneously (CFSB or otherwise).

You could take 12 weeks off endurance training while you work through a couple of cycles of CFSB,...

Re: Recommendations on scaling deadlift/double-under

Thanks for all the tips guys. I went with 245lbs and did the WOD in 10:24. Great WOD. Maybe could have gone a little heavier.

Recommendations on scaling deadlift/double-under

Hi all,

Any tips on scaling the deadlifts in today's WOD (http://www.crossfit.com/mt-archive2/005322.html) (wfs):



My recent 5RM is 280, and a more recent 3RM is 290 (1RM from the other day...

Re: Antun's CFSB Log

Hey Jonathan,

I may do another cycle later this year, but have no plans right now. I'm doing the regular main page WODs now, and also going to Jiu Jitsu.

CFSB was a great learning experience...

Re: CFSB - Ask your questions here!

I believe it's touch and go. I started off by doing ME style in the high-rep sets, and that definitely wore me down. There's a pretty big difference between the amount I could lift touch-and-go and...

Re: Knee problems after running

I started foam-rolling. Yesterday, I started feeling soreness in my hip (the same side as I'm having knee pains on when running). It is low on the hip, and it's very hard to hit the hip sore point...

Re: Knee problems after running

Thanks!

That does sound like it. I take it that I need to focus specifically on the "Tight, strong TFL and IT Band" of the "Upper Leg" section of page 4, right? The other stuff doesn't apply to...

Knee problems after running

Hi all,

I have a very noticeable knee pain after running, even fairly short distances. I'm at a loss as to what to do. Any advice is appreciated!

It only affects my right knee, on...

Re: Shoulder pain when going overhead

Hi Steven,



What I meant was it's hard for me to pinpoint where it is. I'd need to pick up a weight and overhead a bunch of times it to determine exactly where the pain is. It is on the front...

Shoulder pain when going overhead

Hi all,

I've hurt my shoulder for the first time. I think it happened during the jerk/L-pullup WOD, which I only did last week (I'm a little behind in my WODs). It didn't hurt after the WOD, so I...

Re: When to aim for PR on clean and jerks?

Thank you both for your replies. I think I'll take Bert's advice and leave it until the 3rd or 4th set of clean and jerks to go for the PR.

I'd prefer to go up in small increments, so I can watch...

When to aim for PR on clean and jerks?

Hi all,

For the strength lifts, I've learned to aim for a PR on the second set.

e.g. if it's 5 * 3 deadlifts, I'll usually do the first set a little below my PR, then go for the PR on the...

Re: Hang power clean rest

Hey all,

Thanks for the feedback. I did the WOD last night. Ended up resting about 3mins for the first few, then just a little longer.

I was surprised; I thought I'd recover more quickly and...

Hang power clean rest

Hey all,

When I go for ME on squats, deadlifts, etc. I know I need 3+ minutes of rest.

But that seems excessive for 1RM hang power cleans (given that it's more technique-orientated than brute...

Re: A few questions on my squat form

Hi all,

Regarding the other lifts - note I've done 2 6-week cycles of CFSB. I did make progress in my 1RM in the first cycle:


Squat: Before CFSB: 240; End of cycle 1: 255; End of cycle 2:...

Re: A few questions on my squat form

Don't worry about the speed; I'll adjust automatically.
Stick with the deeper squats.

Re: Antun's CFSB Log

As planned, I re-did the back squat day. Unfortunately, I didn't hit my goal of 265 today. I also spread the attempts out, so I wasn't going up in 5lbs increments. Of course, that means that if I...
