    this shouldn't be happening, especially if you're young, unless you have genetic-defects, this just sounds like bad coaching.
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    no, rehab for sure. With the proper guidance, you can rehab more quickly/effectively. It would be worth some research, Teh el M has some articles he's written/posted on the subject.

    I think that doing the 300 3/x week is a terrible idea unless you're in peak-athlete condition. Getting hurt kind of proves your coach was mistaken and I don't like that kind of thing.

    granted - i did a modified version. lighter weights and assited pullups (50 lb assistance). i'm a little girl at 5'2 - so i had to trim down the deadlifts to 75 lbs, used 12 inch high boxes for the box jumps, 18 lb kbs...
    i would really like to say that it was my fault for overtraining.
    but yeah...perhaps suggesting the 300 workout was a bit much. it's what he had his fighters doing. i am no fighter - but the plan was to get me there. so much for plans, eh?

    you can still get there dude! Just be more deliberate about how you move up in intensity. Choose your workouts carefully and leave the proper recovery-time.

    Look at it this way: lots of massage (no reach arounds!) and hot tubbin' and saunas for you. :)

    thanks. i'm re-working my workouts to focus on explosive strength. hopefully by the time i'm fully healed i will be able to somewhat keep up in a crossfit class. i stopped by my old school last night and watched a fairly low intensity muay thai class. i wanted to cry because i didnt think my cardio would get me through the class...and because i just wanted to hit somebody. i miss striking soooooooooooooo much.
    but back to your post - i'm deffo going to look into massage and spending actual time in the sauna.

    patience you must have, young one!

    Keep your cardio up. Yoga is basically boring as hell if you are a fighter, but that and Peliades can be extremely good for recovery.

    power yoga and bikram yoga are not so bad. i think it also depends on the teacher. if you have some new age hippie airhead taking about prana and chakras...then it can wear on your patience. i prefer someone who doesnt speak with a "breathy" "calming" voice or goes on about reaching christ consciousness or what not. just keep talking in a normal voice - talk talk talk so that i stop thinking about how much i just want to hit somebody. i have a breathy voiced teacher for my power yoga class - but the level of difficulty keeps me focused. if i'm challenged then i dont usually get bored in yoga.

    Note - I have been in the Army for 11 years and these were my all time high scores, not all from the same test.

    After 2 months of crossfit I took a record APFT on Monday. The results:

    Pushups - 77
    Situps - 75
    Run - 13:55

    Total Score: 284 points out of 300 (I'm 30)
    I also qualified for the Army Physical Fitness Excellence Badge for the first time in my career. Next time I'm shooting for a perfect 300.
    From your location, I'm guessing that you're either at DLI or NPS? DLI had a pretty active crossfit community when I was there.

    Congrats on the Badge, though. Please sew it to all your PTs. Immediately.
