Re: Anyone know details on what happened to Kevin Ogar?

Let's say, if we take the programming of the throwdown into the mix, it isn't anymore "irresponsible" than some of the programming that HQ throws in during the Games.

Remember last year's Games,...

Re: Can someone explain the science behind kinesio taping

I brought this up because I am seeing these video clips from Regionals and the athletes are taping the hell out of their backs and shoulders as if it were a preventative measure. Especially in the...

Re: Continued tight muscles with L5/S1 Disc bulge

David let me know what you decided to do.

And I understand that it is the S1 nerve root, but I figured the decompression surgery would have gotten rid of the pain by now. It's been two months.

Re: Continued tight muscles with L5/S1 Disc bulge

90% gone. It's more in my calf than anywhere above that. Not sure what explains this. But not concerning enough to ask my neurosurgeon because it doesn't interfere with my day to day. Still some...

Can someone explain the science behind kinesio taping

I am especially interested in how kinesio taping can protect the lumbar and discs at that level from injury during heavy load.

Well, and the general science behind how it works. I am one of those...

Re: Lower back/hip/pain

Can I ask how bad your sciatica was for you to decide on surgery?

I am torn between operating or not.

Re: degerative disc disorder

And you are still lifting? I love CrossFit. But I battle back and forth if I should go back or not.

This has been an ordeal and I never want to reinjure it a 3rd time. I will also ask for nerve...

Re: degerative disc disorder

Most cases are mild but it disc related issues is a ticking time bomb.

Nothing new to add either.

But this is a good place in the conversation to ask you guys, if it is still worth it?

Re: Bad programming?

What if the deadlifts were lighter weight?

Would you still frown at this WOD?

I could see 5 wall balls/ lighter deadlifts could be doable.

150 reps is RIDICULOUS though.
