  • This is great – I think the other thing is it shows you guys really did something special obviously and worked hard at making a great program. Kudos and here’s to hoping it continues to grow!

  • that’s rad, but I’m assuming you guys paid her for that?

  • oops.I wrote that comment before reading your later addition. feel free to delete

  • I think most people would assume we’re paying for all this. The only athlete we have a contact with is the Eagle’s kicker, but that’s just an incentive contract. He came to us about X, which he got from their strength coach who’s a big fan. A lot of the Eagles used X during the offseason. Rumor has it that the US Ski Team is using it, too, or at least Bodie Miller.

  • And, just for the record, I was not doing X when I got injured. Instead, I was doing some one-legged leg presses recommended by the strength coach for the Australian cyling team. I won’t blame the exercise for the injury, because it wouldn’t have happened if my form was perfect. But it’s still interesting to see where injuries occur. Tony’s training group at the beach absorbed the dregs of a crossfit group that was training along side them after the bulk of them got injured.There is the sentiment that if you’re not getting injured you’re not attempting to push boundries enough. True enough, but I’ll continue my “white mouse” role for BB and shoulder that responsibility for the lot of our customers.

  • Interesting about injuries – I think everyone has some unfortunate experiences with it. Although I will say, my balky shoulder held up really well through my two plus rounds of the X, including countless pullups and pushups, even the doubles for periods in there. It’s a point I’ve also made to my crossfit brethren on several occasions. My theory is it’s at least two aspects – the yoga and the phasing. Meaning within the week and the monthly ones with the recovery weeks built in there etc. Anyway, it’s again a sign that things are put together right to be able to improve WITHOUT hurting yourself.

  • Very good piece. The key to injury prevention after about 35 years of age is understanding the tissue differences between muscles, tendons and joints. Click my name to read my recent post on the subject.
