The delayed onset muscle soreness from the 150 GHS hit me today... it hurts my abs to sneeze and it's pretty hard to walk because my hip flexor group is so sore. Really, normal situps have nothing on these.

That coupled with a slight knee injury and a foot injury on the other leg means I'm going to have to skip my first workout since starting Crossfit 8 weeks ago. :-(

Oh well, such is life. :-) Anyone else been crippled by Saturday's workout?

yeah, I'm right there with you. I never get sore, or at least very rarely in my abs, but it hurts to do anything. My cell phone rang the other morning and I couldn't roll over to get it. Its great, ain't it. Got to love the crossfit.

I thought I had appendicitis for three days once. Turned out it was just g/h situps.

I couldn't even do the GH situps on Saturday because of the ones we did last week coupled with the deadlifts. A week and a half later and it still hurts so much that trying to the first one, my eyes bugged out and my stomach refused to cooperate. I tried one last night and although still no go, it's getting closer. That movement is going to the top of the list of "Things I suck at". David

I can still feel that 150 from saturday. I thought it was going to kill my lower back, but it was the abs.
I did regular sit ups for the warm up on Monday and it hurt.. a lot.

Sweet sweet move.

Just horrible. I agree about the delayed onset. That workout chewed me up and spat me out.

I thought about why these killed me so. I do situp movements all the time, I do pretty advanced breakfalls in my martial art aikido, so I thought I should be fine.

I think it's the eccentric component---having to stop yourself on the way down instead of hitting a nice mat---of the GHS that really triggers the DOMS and makes it such a potent exercise.

I had to miss aikido tonight too. Hopefully I'll be able to get back into it tomorrow!

My gym has a slightly older less aesthetically pleasing GH machine. I used it for GH sit-ups as part of the CFWU for the first time today.

I noticed a sensation in my lower back, while not painful, was unusual and felt like I wasn't doing it right. Suggestions or comments?

I know the feeling you're talking about; a pinch, but not a painful one, in the lower back near the bottom of the movement. Just keep your butt squeezed as hard as you can on the way back and down and it should be a little easier.
