Have I mentioned that the SDLHP is hard? At one point, I was thinking:“Couldn’t I just do some thrusters?”
I tend to think as you do. I don’t like the stress on wrists myself. Might I suggest taking a band sitting on the floor with band going across bottom of shoes. do a motion of extending legs and pulling with arms simultaneously. Seems like a closer approximation than a SDHP to a rowing motion.I will post a video link demonstrating the movement after I upload it to my vimeo account. Good luck. here’s the Video http://vimeo.com/96852959
Thanks for the link. I’ll give it try. The SDLHP’s really gassed me, the way burpees do. I’ve been on a rower and it never made me feel like that. I do feel pressure in my right ulna at the high point of the pull.
I totally agree. The movement is nothing like actually rowing,from the direction of the pull upward to the positioning of the legs in the sumo stance. Hopefully what I proposed will help folks who have the same issues and they will find this a better alternative for a rowing substitute.Good luck on your traininng
Thanks for listening and taking the time to address my issue. I think that would be a great substitute until I can get a rower. Very thoughtful! I actually don’t mind SDLHP’s, but I don’t want to do 50 of them in one set. The pressure I feel in my ulna is because I have a 7 inch titanium plate and 14 screws in it, so I have to be mindful of recurring pressure or pain when I do repeated reps of any exercise. The doc told me I’d likely never be 100% again and to stop if it hurts. So far, I have been a good “listener” of my body and I am getting stronger, faster and fitter than I expected. I have always been in shape, but the recovery from the accident that resulted in the plate was almost a year of wearing a full arm to shoulder cast and then 6 months of rehab really sapped me of my fitness. CrossFit has enabled me to get back to an acceptable level of fitness in a short amount of time and to discover that I am capable of many more activities than before.
Your accident sounds pretty major, Glad you have made it back to where you are in such short order,That being said I think slow and easy is prudent, But I’m sure that’s your mindset already. Good luck on your continued strength progress and Rehab.
