Article from Keith Wittenstein at CrossFit Virtuosity:

I’ve got to hand it to you Part 4

Whether you are doing Gymnastics, Olympic weightlifting, Crossfit, or manual labor, your hands take a beating. Your hands and wrists are susceptible to carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, strains, sprains and all sorts of trauma. Doing some or all of the following things can help keep you injury-free and prevent your training from getting derailed. . .

Some of the pictures from the Friends and Family day have been uploaded.

    Check out the comment on youtube from “xfit888” . . .

    It appears that someone has taken offence to our using a cheap and readily available instrument to practice heavy swings with (someone who signed up then posted a single comment within the first few minutes).

    I guess he took your email personally Craig. Heh heh.

    I emailed the person through YouTube and invited them to come workout. Hopefully they will, I doubt they’ve really had a chance to see what we’re about. Oh well, their loss.

    Painstorm time = 55 min, 59 seconds (jumping PUs and jumping ring dips)

    Brutal. Absolutely brutal. Hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Screw that workout.

    Ok, I’m going to lay down now.

    Interesting that the youtube hater used the name “xfit888.” Perhaps he/she is from a different crossfit gym that has issues with DCF? Either way, what an idiot.

    Settle down everyone.

    There is no evidence that it is the same person, other than speculation. Personally, I didn’t have that much of a problem with it (I am a big softie), but I was perplexed by the fact he wasn’t interested in our program (why not offer “we try, you try” type of rational).

    Now I am going to see if I can start doing some keg juggling.

    Oh, and don’t forget to rate the videos everyone! No stars yet!? c’mon.

    Darren deserves 5 stars just for his grunting.

    And to clarify everyone, I came down on a Mona Vie sales rep who was dishing shots of juice from his trunk and promoting his product at our open house. Not cool.

    Our community came to be as a result of our mission to make DCF a cool place to workout with like-minded people. We do our best to not sell. We’ll share our passion for, our knowledge of, and our experience with CrossFit for anyone that wants to participate – including those who are financially challenged.

    FWIW, the keg shell is worth $30, and the water is water is free. If anyone knows how to make an adjustable device that can go from 10lbs to 190lbs for less than $30 please let us know.

  • Stavros

    This isn’t under $30, but it’s pretty darn cool. Not sure if the keg or XLS provides a better workout, results TBD.

    Hi, I love the content in this website, and the products that are mentioned, but I have a question to you: what do you know about carpal tunnel and Sign language? I have been told that I may want to reconsider studying sign language as my career path because many interpreters develop carpal tunnel! Is this true?? Is there anything I could do to prevent it? Exercises? Any preventative actions? Thank you, any help would be great : )
