    Crossfit tip of the day- Crossfit First Aid

    Figure it's best to start with the most important aspect. Keeping yoruself safe so that you can keep doing more crossfit. Todays tip comes from Men's Fitness and I dig it. I think most important is Number 9- Remember, In crossfit there will be blood.


    1) Aquaphor Healing Ointment
    Applying a thin layer can help prevent the chaffing that results from being in constant contact with the bar. Before a WOD, it works to protect vulnerable skin from friction, burns, and blisters. After a WOD, it will help to sooth and heal dry, cracked or irritated skin. (cvs.com, $6)
    2) Strength Wraps


    These reusable cloth wrist wraps offer support for a myriad of lifts, including front squats, overhead squats, and cleans. The best part: they can be worn throughout a workout without hindering other non-lifting movements. If you are doing Fran, for example, you don’t have to remove the wraps between the thrusters and the pull-ups. An athlete can also adjust the tightness (i.e. level of support) with just one twist of the wrap. (strengthwraps.com, $25-$30)

    3) Tweezerman Safety Slide Callus Shaver with Rasp
    Calluses are inevitable for CrossFitters, and the best way to keep them from disrupting your WOD is to shave them down and smooth them out. This particular callus shaver is the perfect two-in-one combination tool for removing calluses and smoothing skin. (tweezerman.com, $12)

    4) Purell Advanced

    You probably leave the box without thinking twice about what your hands just touched. Truth is, several sweaty, germy paws have been on the medicine balls, bars, and kettlebells you just set down. When you’re done with a WOD, make a habit out of using a hand sanitizer, like Purell Advanced, which is alcohol-based yet gentle on skin. (drugstore.com, $2)

    5) Biofreeze

    Quads in pain from squatting? Lower back sore from deadlifts? Within seconds of applying Biofreeze, you’ll feel a cooling, tingling sensation deep in your muscles. (performancehealth, $15)

    6) Lacrosse Ball
    Use this inexpensive sports ball to work out tough knots in just about every area of your body. With a combination of circular movements and your own body weight, run the ball over your shoulders, quads, back, and arms to loosen up stiff muscles. (dickssportinggoods.com, $3)

    7) Foam Roller

    To cover more ground than you would with a lacrosse ball, invest in a foam roller. Roll tight muscles, like hips, hamstrings, and calves, over the dense foam cylinder to loosen them up after an intense workout. (optp.com, prices vary)

    8) Rock Tape

    This multi-purpose product protects hands during pull-ups, guards wrists and shins during muscle-ups, and promotes blood flow to help delay fatigue. Rock Tape can also help correct tracking issues in shoulders and knees, reduce swelling in joints, and stabilize weak spots such as your lower back, hamstrings, and calves. (rocktape.com, $20)

    9) Band-Aids

    They’re simple, but necessary. In CrossFit, there’s bound to be blood. Ever miss your mark on a box jump? Yeah, that’s a messy situation.

    Dude, that is complete gold. I thought it was a parody of crossfit douchebags the first started watching it, but then I saw that fucking wall he destroyed. I can't believe he's bragging about getting people fired for throwing him out. What a fucking douche. I can't wait for this shitty fad to go away.
