But to tell the story, you have to talk about the dark side of the human condition. This is an attempt at making sense of why it’d be so much fun for Christians to watch a guy get his head sliced open with a claw hammer in front of thousands of people. The ironic part is that I don’t do this all intentionally. It happens, purely by chance in my life’s narrative. And when that happens in your life it can be dark and profound and difficult to understand, because out in the world it doesn’t seem like anything bad could possibly duck punch you there in front of thousands screaming fans for God knows how long. Your pain just seems too far removed from yourself; too incomprehensible; too not-you; how could THIS possibly happen? The answer is WE KNOW IT CAN! We know because we lived through Watergate (in our family); we read about 9/11 (in our family) and stand before men screaming on the stage (me). So let me ask you: How would YOU react if thousands of people screamed metal spikes off your chest while wearing nothing but dirty undershorts? Would THAT bomb your day or scream up into your soul like Crossfit 417 did mine? Don’t ask me “how did that happen?!?! Who did that?! Why??!!!” Ask yourself instead “why would anyone find joy in doing this? What was so special about it??!! Did
How Long After Acl Surgery Can You Crossfit?
Many people ask me, “how long after acl surgery can I Crossfit?”. It takes between four and eight weeks for all of the swelling in your knee to resolve. Some people will feel it immediately and others may not feel anything until they see the surgeon later on. Then it may take up to eight weeks for you to get back to full strenuous activity. If you return too early you risk significant damage or re-injury with multiple interventions that include offloading your knee (special techniques such as Tiger Balm) and stretching. A good example of this is my patient who ended up with 2nd degree tears in both knees when she tried to do Crossfit again before 8 weeks. One thing I find really interesting is that most surgeons will put me at work on a Saturday so I don’t have time to watch TV while rehabbing…oh wait did I mention there aren’t any TVs in physical therapy?! So what does a person do while waiting for their post ACL reconstruction physical therapy? They play video games! In fact I am typing this from my new video game console which automatically outputs text messages on Facebook! My review for Madden 2013 is about ready!!!
Health & Motivation Tips
Remove distractions before workouts People who have a hard time sticking with exercise often find themselves distracted by music, conversations on the phone, family members and friends. When you’re working out on a regular basis, it can be difficult to concentrate on your workout or even remember what you were doing in the first place. Make sure your before-workout routine is as anti-distraction as possible. Shut off all notifications and music devices for at least 20 minutes prior to starting your workout. Make sure that any distractions will not disturb your concentration during the whole work out period. Limit conversation during your workout If people tend to talk about their day (and they do), try to avoid listening in if you know there’s going to be a lot of chatter – especially about relating to an upcoming event – right before or after exercise time: Get rid of anything related only to these events (e.g., jewelry). Turn off and put away electronics (music players) before jumping into exercise activities such as aerobics or weight training exercises. Hold those calls! If you must answer someone who called unexpectedly while exercising, let people leave the sentence unfinished so that they may hang up without putting unbearable stress upon yourself with interruption during exercise activity such as aerobics or weight training workouts Burn more calories than usual Consistent aerobic training can burn thousands of extra calories per week — this means simply burning more calories than normal each day cardio sessions — so don’t expect this cardio plan to deliver miraculous abs
