Another week is gone. T-minus 16 days til knee surgery. I am so dreading the recovery/downtime post-op. I haven’t taken more than 7 days off of CrossFit since I started 3 years ago. I am sure that I will be back in the gym, but the question is ‘What will I be doing’?
I think after surgery I can do some one-legged burpees, some bench presses, some dead-hang pullups and a lot of situps. I am not sure if GHD will work for my leg or not, but I think not. This is going to give me a lot of time to work on some upper body and core muscle groups.
Saturday, we did a WOD that was deceptively sucky. It was an EMOM 20 with even minutes doing push presses and odd minutes doing kettlebell swings. 100 push presses at 115# was pretty taxing in the last 2 rounds. The kettlebell swings were fine, but the presses really took it out of me. At the end, my right triceps muscle was wanting to fail. Great workout that did not leave me wanting more.

I am not sure why this was shocking to the researchers. Heads in the sand?
