    Scaled: BP 100#, rest as rx’ed
    1rd +24 DLs, and 23 box jumps at 30 minutes; was going to keep going until 25 but couldn’t

    Tore open my shin again, in the EXACT same spot that was almost healed….a nice meaty mess. From now on, I’m requesting that I can stack two of the black coated 12″ boxes on top of each other…..I just pray one day that I can do a box jump WOD without banging up my shin, or both of them…..OUCH!

  6. Aaron says:

    Scaled DL 225, BP 145, Cleans 115, BJ & WBS as rx’d
    1 + DL, BJ, WBS, 3 BP

    Tough grinding hero wod with probably too much resting but it was impossible to move fast. Stoked I was able to bench roughly my body weight. Overall it felt good to be back after a short break after Faction, I think I needed a mental break more than anything.

  7. Dennis B says:

    I would just like to say everyone did a great job today on a very tough HERO WOD.
    Way to show respect CFHSV Athletes.

    RIP “ADAM BROWN”

    Train Hard, Train Smart, Train to Survive! OkieDB Out

    Hotel parking lot WOD:

    100 burpees for time

    5 squats every min

    17:30. This was SLOW…….the last 30 burpees took forever. I hate working out alone!

    I forgot my shoes so had to do this barefoot…..parking lot was brutal….I have no skin on my toes 🙁

  9. tracey says:

    my leg modeling career will never happen due to those lovely box jump scars!!!! LOL Speaking of that Kerri has a nasty one from todays wod:(

    I got to 7 reps of bench press (2nd round)155# DL, 75# cleans( trying to fix my arm pull), 105# bench press(rnd.1) then down to 85# for last round…trying to beat the clock. GOOD, HARD WOD.

    RIP Adam.

      It’s still bleeding as of, 8pm tonight…..I’m thinking I may have to get it looked at tomorrow….=o( Not looking forward to that.

  10. klowe says:

    Seriously??? ANOTHER box jump injury?

    When is enough….enough???

    MRSA is not funny. Paying to get injured is not cool.

    Fix the box jump “issue” already

  11. Russell says:

    Unfortunately the only thing that would prevent box jump injuries completely would be to do only step-ups.. or move back to the matrix where their boxes are made of foam and velcro.

    I think you guys have the idea that our boxes are somehow the problem. They aren’t. It’s shins hitting the side of these boxes with all of your bodyweight behind them that causes injury. This can happen on rubber-topped boxes (winkles left a nice nasty mess of hair and flesh on our rubber tops once) and it can happen on pyramid-style boxes.

    Cuts to the shin suck. Stitches suck more. Pay attention and look at your box while you are jumping and if you are nervous do a lower height or do step-ups!!!

    • Patrick says:

      I don’t trust anyone without shin scars.
      But, I’ve come to learn that step-ups suck more that jumps in WODs with a lot of Box Jumps.

  12. klowe says:

    Regardless if you are the Michael Jordan of box jumps….. jumping on a box that has upward facing split grains of plywood is not a good idea. If that design is a good and safe idea then enlighten me. I have not injured myself (yet) on the boxes and yes…..people WILL continue to hit their shins on boxes no matter the design but hitting rubber and causing a superficial abrasion with yanked out hair is totally different scenario than getting maimed to the point of multiple people of differing sexes and atheletic abilities being sent to the emergence room for suture and antibiotics.

    It is a simple and cost effective solution. It needs to be fixed. CFHSV is basically depending on “luck” that litigation has not happened yet with the dangerous boxes and a “don’t suck” attitude.

  13. klowe says:

    and yes…..I realize that it is not my gym and our philosophy may differ but I DO CARE about my gym family members, the future of CFHSV, (and the success of your business). I really don’t want to see either getting hurt by such a fixable problem.

  14. Russell says:

    Kevin, a couple things.

    Just so you know, I still think your interpretation of what causes people to get hurt on these boxes is generally wrong. The boxes we use are the same exact construction style as those used in the 2010 games and all across the CrossFit world. The pyramid-style boxes might be slightly safer, but they also might not be, considering I’ve seen nasty gashes from both, and the pillar-style force you to jump from farther away from the top edge of the box than what we have.

    I also think its really unfair for you to make it out like we don’t care what happens to our members. In fact I’d classify that as total BS. We have been saving money to buy pyramid boxes for a long time, mostly because they are more stable, and I just placed the order with again faster on monday. And no, it was NOT an inexpensive quick fix. We couldn’t afford the rubber tops and will have to screw them on ourselves. Since our very first box-jump injury, I’ve told people to scale down or step-up if they feel nervous, and trying to say that Brad’s injury was anything other than a stupid idea ( weighted box jumps???) is also completely wrong.

    We do care about your feedback, and everyone elses, and we are in the process of trying to make our equipment better, but box-jumps will always have inherent risk and thinking that there is a “safe” box that you can smash your shins into without running the risk of stitches is foolish. look at the box, pay attention, and if you aren’t comfortable make an adjustment.

  15. klowe says:

    First I’m not trying to paint a picture of you not caring. Sorry if it came across that way. I was trying to make a big deal out of the liability those boxes pose to both your business and your clients health. Also I’m not arguing anything about pyramidal vs pillar shape…..totally not an issue……I was trying to make a point that splintered upward facing plywood generates a much more serious injury when the weight of the athlete is distributed on a point vs spread over a wider area that a beveled edge or rubber would accomplish.

    Sorry to call you out but I’m glad to hear that the box issue is being addressed. I’m speaking out to get your attention out of care for you and cfhsv because it is a huge gigantic liability issue that has a nasty track record of injury and needed medical attention…..the wrong person or hospital required medical treatment for MRSA would cost you, cfhsv, and the rest of us dearly.

    I wont say another word and again the only reason I posted was out of care for you and your business. Glad to hear it is being taken care of.

    I have rubber matting that I will donate for the currently used boxes to help bring faster resolution. Ill bring it by today.

  16. Kerri says:

    I will continue to hit my shins on these boxes, I know I will, because as long as I push myself to improve and get better, it will happen; I know that. Whether it’s because I want a better time,, want more reps, or, eventually do want to be on a higher box, I will keep hitting my shins.

    However, I do feel more confident, (how much of CF is psychological?) when I jump on the matted boxes, two 12″ stacked up. I wear socks to protect my shins, and, I’ve escaped a couple cuts like this by hitting my shin on the rubber matted boxes vs. oh, about 4 nice hits on the ‘naked’ boxes.

    I’m glad to hear new boxes have been ordered, and, even if it is just psychological, I want to be able to bound up on a box with confidence not fear. I thought protecting my shins with cute knee socks would help, but the box still bit me.

    Thanks for the concern and care KLowe, and I also, want all of my ‘family’ to be safe and taken care of in my ‘house’ too. In addition, I don’t want others to live in fear just because they saw me bang myself up (especially our newest CrossFitters. Like Kevin said, I’m glad it’s on its way to being fixed, and any minor fix to make the new guys start off with confidence is worth it!

    Taking it easy today and tomorrow, and hopefully I’ll be able to heal before the next box jump WOD shows up!! =o)
