CrossFit High Five

After a low-energy weekend and a sick day from the corporate overlords yesterday, I’m back!

I’m working on some tasty stuff for you today, but in the interim, I wanted to point you to a post from the lovely and badass Jessica. It’s a list of resources to help prep your hands for the demands of heavy lifting and kipping pullups.

There are many, many things wrong with my kip, and chief among them is that – inside my head – I’m very whiny about how much it hurts my hands. On the outside, I’m probably blurting an obscenity or gritting my teeth, but inside… wah, wah, wah. If you have that problem, too, Jess’s post might be the answer.

    Great post from Jessica!

    I shredded my left hand a week before Aerial classes started. It was a gross, big ol' hole in my paw. And then reopenned on another workout. Erika suggested that Aquaphor stuff… it is outstanding! I love it. It healed it faster than Neosporin.

    Thanks, Mel! Glad my post could be of help. I've been taking my own advice lately – I'm nursing a week-old tear from "Cindy". Boo!

    Bonus tip: Since I never leave home without it, my Aquaphor is now doubling as lip balm! Works like a charm.

    Great tips! I dread those "Angie" hands and was seriously considering a boycott, the next time she showed up…thanks to this post, I may reconsider.
