Die Liste an hochkarätigen Athleten, die sich während der Regionals 2017 oder in Vorbereitung dessen verletzt haben, hat fast 10% aller angetretenen Athleten erreicht. 30 (!) Crossfitter haben sich Verletzungen an der Brust zugezogen, hauptsächlich bei Ring Dips und Muscle Ups.

 

1) Dan Bailey verletzte sich beim 2. Event während der Ring Dips. Für Dan war es extra schmerzhaft, da er die Qualifikation für die Games letztes Jahr knapp verpasste.

2) Christian Lucero hätte wahrscheinlich die California Regionals gewonnen oder sich zumindest für die Games qualifiziert. Bis zum 5. Workout stand er auf Platz 1 mit einen gutem Vorsprung an Punkten. Bei einem der ersten Muscle Ups zog er sich jedoch einen Tec Pear zu.

3) Lucas Parker

4) Khan Porter

#RegionalsDiary Event 2. What a whirlwind of emotions. Prior to regionals I tested event 2 a couple of times, racked up as much ring dip volume as I could and had a cheeky feeling I might sneak an event win on it. In the warm up area I jumped on the rings, banged out a few dips and instantly felt my right pec tweak. I've never had an injury to my chest and never had issues doing dips. I tried again and the pain got worse. I started to stress haha. I had @dr.nickpapas work through it, then had the CrossFit Games medical team doctor take a look and she advised me she could feel a slight deviation in the pec and that if I were to continue the competition I would seriously risk tearing my pec from the bone and would recommend withdrawing from the event. I told myself this will be my last season competing as an individual, so choosing to pull out on a maybe did not sit well with me and after a textbook KP emotional moment I decided to continue anyway. The doctor recommended then that I do my dips as strict as possible and err on the side of caution. I ripped into the workout and found myself clear ahead of the pack going into the final round of 9 dips. Still trying to stay strict I began getting no repped for not moving my hips enough below the rings. This is a standard I've never practiced when doing strict dips and in the heat of the moment, with my pec the way it was I couldn't seem to get into a rhythm with my kip and ended up doing around 25 dips to get the full set of 9 out, placing 10th overall in the workout. NOTE this was not a bad judging call at all, I just couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong and how to fix it in time, that's totally on me. Though I was incredibly frustrated at the time, in hindsight I made a decision to change my strategy in that workout to try and prevent further injury and that decision has allowed me to continue in the competition for the time being, which I am so stoked about! I can't thank the medical staff enough for their help before and after this event, particularly the sports doc dealing with an emotional athlete wouldn't be an easy task at all haha. Onward to day 2! #SilverLining

Update: auch Noah Ohlsen hat sich 2 Wochen vor den Regionals einen Pec Tear zugezogen

The elephant on my chest: The lead up to this regional was the most nerve-racking and doubt riddled yet. A little over two weeks prior to the competition, I tore my right pec doing intervals of dumbbell snatches and ring dips. While it was minor, it was so painful that I couldn't even do a burpee, let alone support myself on the rings. Max (@trainingthinktank) and I took a step back and did EVERYTHING in our power to intelligently heal the tendon while still trying to maintain my fitness and prepare for game day. With the help of @sflrehab, @athletixrehab and @joannleigh, I was able get it back the point where I could slowly do a few strict dips two days before. I slept about five minutes total of the ten hours I was in bed Thursday night, anticipating the workout that'd set me back less than three weeks ago. Needless to say, I made it through unscathed and was just as happy to remain healthy as I was to win. Thankful for whatever went on inside of my body and for all the TLC I got from very special people outside of it, to give me the confidence that I could still perform when the time came. A deep, sincere and heartfelt sorry to those who didn't make it all the way through the weekend. I'll do my best to represent in Madison!

Ich finde es sehr schade vieler dieser bekannten und unbekannten Athleten nicht zu sehen. Verletzungen können auf diesem Level immer passieren, aber in dieser Dichte und speziell in Verbindung mit Ring Dips wirkt es schon etwas unnatürlich.

Letztendlich kristallisieren sich zwei Thesen für die Gründe heraus: Entweder schlechtes Programming oder schlechte Vorbereitung der Athleten.

Auf Social Media habe ich auch einige Stimmen gehört, die sagen, dass Steroide Grund für die Verletzungen sind. Dem möchte ich folgende Gründe entgegenhalten

  • Keine Frau hat sich in der Art verletzt
  • Viele Veteranen haben sich verletzt, die keine Anzeichen für einen plötzlichen Steroidkonsum an den Tag legen
  • Warum bei dieser Übung und nicht bei anderen?

Interessant ist, dass sich bisher keine Frau in der Art verletzt hat. Dazu habe ich ein Statement von Julien Pineau auf Facebook gefunden:

“I have been asked my opinion on all the pec tears at Regionals

The full range of motion implemented this year is making the athletes create a powerful contraction of the pec major, going from relaxed to fully contracted in a hurry. The pec major is not a muscle being trained in your „classical“ Crossfit training (i will keep the talk about Internal Torque for another post)

The women are not affected because they have always defaulted to their triceps on the dips, toward External Torque (it has to do with strength requirement for that movement)

Btw i mentioned the lack of pec activation & training and the need for Dumbbell Decline Presses in that Podcast i did almost 2 years ago.You might have heard of it…”

 

Übersetzt sagt er also, dass Crossfitter ihre Pecs zu wenig direkt trainieren und diese durch die  schnelle Kontraktion bei den Kipping Ring Dips reißen. Frauen sind davon nicht betroffen, da sie von Anfang an zu schwach “auf der Brust” sind und sich somit automatisch auf ihren Trizeps stützen.

Zugegeben, die Regionals 2017 kamen etwas unerwartet ohne eine einzige Barbell. Das hat  viele Athleten etwas aus der Bahn geworfen. Sicherlich haben sich die meisten Athleten tief in der Off-Season nicht so sehr darauf vorbereitet, sondern an ihrer Kraft gearbeitet.

Ein weiteres Statement von ihm in Video-Form, in dem er dasselbe etwas ausführlicher sagt:

Auch Adrien Conway von Brute Strength, der sich selbst einen Pec Tear in 2014 bei Ring Dips zuzog, sagt zu dem Thema etwas ähnliches:

Auch Lucas Parker, selbst betroffen, hat sich dazu geäußert:

Regionals update: I decided to withdraw from this weekend's competition. Halfway through the first event I started getting dizzy and lightheaded. I felt the distinct urge to sleep. After finishing the event and leaving the floor with assistance from the medical team, I spent about half an hour getting my pulse, blood pressure, breathing, and temperature monitored and back to normal with help from the medical team. After this I observed a very red colour in my urine. In warmup and execution of event 2, my symptoms returned and persisted. This is now becoming a trend for me – this pattern of events has occurred in other crossfit competitions. Based on this, I felt it was unwise and unproductive to continue, this time. Nobody is more disappointed about this than I am! Indeed, I am as perplexed as I am upset. I believe my prep this year was solid, and I felt good in the days and minutes leading up to this "system crash." THANK YOU to the medical staff and volunteers who took care of me and kept me safe. The plan now is to continue recovering, and to pursue further testing and information. I'll post more detailed thoughts in few days. @crossfitgames @crossfitncr @cfviccity @jaktrx @roguefitness @virusintl • 📸: @martsromero

Dave Castro hat in dem Live Stream der West Regionals gesagt, dass er es nicht bereut so programmiert zu haben.

“Well I hate to see all the injuries. I don’t ever program them. We don’t ever program them. We don’t ever create an event where we want to see injuries. It’s very unfortunate. That being said, I don’t think it was inappropriate. I don’t regret programming it. I think we possibly might have exposed some deficiencies in training. I’m not going to say that is the reason why. I think that is a component of it.

It’s not a crazy ask and it’s not a crazy standard. 21-15-9 ring dips compared with other classic CrossFit workouts have been in the community for a long time. The movement, the ring dip, has been around for a long time. We actually even did the ring dip a few years at Regionals…2014 with the same standards. It really pains me to see people getting injured on it, but it doesn’t make me think that we made a mistake.

Also, at the end of the day it’s still 90-95% of the field is finishing and don’t have any issues with it. So an overwhelming majority are having, the best in the world are having no issues with it. Some of them have to. I don’t want to make that statement as if not the best are getting injured because some of the best are getting bit by this.

Another factor I want to add, you know. I saw someone make a statement about all the pec tears. There’s pec injuries. They’re definitely not all pec tears and there’s a whole spectrum of injury that we’ve seen, but they’re not all just blanket pec tear, they need to go get surgery now.”

 

Er hasse es Verletzungen zu sehen und programmiere natürlich nicht mit der Absicht Athleten in Gefahr zu bringen. Die meisten Athleten haben die Workouts unbeschadet überstanden und nicht bei jeder Verletzung handelt es sich um einen Muskelriss.

Zuletzt will ich dazu sagen, dass sich meines Wissens nach kein Athlet über unfairer Programming beschwert hat.

 

Was denkst du?

Wieso verletzten sich so viele Crossfitter bei den Regionals 2017?
