My left shoulder has been bothering me since Oct/Nov. Finally went to Doc and was told it’s a torn Labrum. Doc says 6-8 weeks of minimal use and physical therapy. I can see a couple ways to work around this but I’d like input.
1 continue to do the WODS but eliminate any shoulder/arm exercise OR sub with something else ... push ups sub sit ups or squat etc. Does it matter what I sub with?
2 continue to do the WODs as written except use a dumb bell with the good arm while the bad arm heals
3 make up my own WODs focusing on running, core, Legs etc etc
Does it matter what you sub with? Yes. Will it affect you substantially? Maybe not. If you’re a recreational CrossFitter working on your own then you’ll likely not get optimal results, but, there’s a reason (you’ve got an injury and you’re programming yourself). Is it worth losing sleep over? No. Focus on the rehab.
Personally I think I’d try to do WODs while working around the injury. That said, an 8 week diversion of running, biking, yoga, or something else might not be too bad either.
There are a number of one-armed workout posts within the forum. You might try searching around a bit and see what you can find.
