Try rolling them over a massive dog bal (if you can stand the pain) or use a tennisbal (hurts less )
No , i mean they are really a bloody mess , from bar contact on shins when deadlifting for reps i tear the skin off bad and the more calloused it gets the easier it tears.
I broke down and bought baseball socks…that way I get some protection….
Am I doing something wrong cause I don’t have this problem..
its from keeping the bar close to you . i set up per x coach Rip. bar splits my foot in half , then without bending your knees grab the bar , then bend your knees till shins touch the bar , now big chest and pull . Rip has some good youtube videos on deadlift setup. i miss his input in crossfit for powerlifting.
Yeah i pretty much do all that besides having the bar scrape the shins. Ill practice that and see if it helps any. My dad was an competitive lifter in college and he watched me deadlift a couple weeks ago and said my form is good. But im always looking for better more effecient ways. That just sounds painful tho
im probably the one doing something wrong seems like once i get good at one thing ,crossfit knocks me down a peg on something else . that what keeps me coming back KCCO
21,15,9 205lb dead lift 95lb OHS 7:57 I started OHS at 115 but by rep 7 I decided to drop the weight, glad I did
cashoout dead lifts 255-2,275-2,295-2,315-1,335-fail 135-20
I am not happy with my deadlift lately so there will probably be more work with it in the future.
Wife did 3RFT
3 beginner rope climbs, 15 push ups, 20 sit ups 9:16
Pack-ish Five Four rounds for time of:
7 Handstand push-ups or progressions 95 65 pound Thruster, 7 reps
7 Knees to elbows
185-205 135 pound Deadlift, 7 reps
7 Kettlebell swings, 1.5 1 pood
1 pood kettlebell
Time: 24:24 (4:27, 5:39, 7:33, 6:46)
Tired after the second set. Really tired after the third set. Quit after the fourth set to keep from overdoing it.
Mostly unbroken. I only had one barbell, so I lost a little time adding & removing weight.
Handstand was feet over a bar just above my waist. Knees to elbow were more like knees to chest high. Burpees were slow. Pushups were assisted (#19) & relatively easy. I can lower the resistance some more. I broke on the third round of thrusters, and lowered the weight to 55# for the last round.
