    Apparently I am no match against a tiny pollen spore..... Alergies are wrecking me right now with the change of weather in SoCal (it was 88deg F yesterday).

    Yeah, I get killed with allergies/asthma as well. For me it is all synthetic things though. Those are my yoga at home days.

    Yesterday was:
    104 rope pullups
    206 heart pushups
    315 squats with 45lbs
    5K as sprint 1 min, 1 min jog to recover over a fairly hilly area.

    Hey guys what would be your solution for tendinitis(Not Carpal Tunnel) in the wrist, short story I have had tendinitis in my right wrist for a good chunk of last year and now it's rearing it's ugly face whenever I do power cleans(No, it's not carpal tunnel). So know of any solutions(preferably short term) to this problem? Or recommend some products to ease the pain during lifts?

    (PS I Spam not carpal tunnel syndrome because that's what people always assume it is whenever I ask them for advice about my wrist injury.)

    RICE will work with injuries that were, more or less, untreated for over a year?

    RICE is the recipe for just about everything - you can go to a Doc and they'll tell you the same thing - aside from that you can talk to a PT and get some exercises to help correct whatever it is that's causing your problem, but its tough to accurately assess over the web.

    Talk to a PT that will give you exercises for therapy.

    I tried "crossfit" today.

    I simply searched some vids about it, noted down some excercises and went to the gym to try. I´m in a very good shape and have a decent aerobic endurance, so I thought it would be fun. Dear lord ... it was HELL ! ha ha !

    It was 50 minutes of pain and sweat, the kind of effort that makes you think "dude i´m gonna die here". I performed these excercises in pairs, no rest between them but resting 2 minutes untill the next pair. The maximun weight I used was 100lb more or less.

    Here´s what I did:

    - 10minutes fixed bicycle

    - Pull ups + squats: 12 / 10 / 8

    - Push press + jumping to a step: 10 / 10 / 8

    - Lifting a plate above my head from my abs, standing + deadlift: 10 / 8 / 8

    - Rowing + Abs (like if I was about to do a pull up but raising my legs to my hands) 10 / 8 / 8

    - 15 minute fixed bicycle

    - 5 reps of "clean and jerk"

    I loved it and felt extremely challenged, and even though I could not do that daily, I will definitively ad one crossfit-like day in my training.

    Note to self: I should start from the very bottom.
    Note to others: I´d advice not to start alone, and, IMO, it requieres a certain condition.

    ^^^

    Strenth and power based interval training is great for conditioning work. I use it at the end of my workouts for a 10-15 min period. Being heavier I'd much rather do this type of work than beat my knees into the ground running distance.
