Any Crossfitters In Here?



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone :) I'm due to get my sleeve mid August and just wanted to see if there are anyone else who does CrossFit here and how long before you could get into it post op?

I'm from Australia and I know the US has a pretty big following so hoping someone can help.

I would like to know too! I can't wait to start CrossFit. My ortho won't let me until I get some of my weight off because of prior surgeries.

I just had my surgery on the 21st (two days ago). I was told around week 5 or 6 I could get back to it. My doctor said it take three months to fully recover. So I'm not going to go full charge when I get back. which Crossfit do you all go to? I'm Crossfit Silverback in Spring, Tx.

That's what I was thinking, 6-8 weeks.

I start my pre-op 2 week diet in 5 weeks so will stop then. Can't imagine I'll have the energy.

I'm at B.T.S Crossfit, NSW (Afew hours north of Sydney)

Crossfit is intense. I waited 8 weeks to do it again after surgery. It still kicks my ass every time - and I love it!!

I started on crossfit about a month after surgery however told my trainer what type of surgery I had, he has adjusted my workouts. I have not started the heavy lifting again and stay with the light kettle bells during training. I will start to increase my weights soon. Also I only crossfit 2x's a week now.

Been thinking about doing it for a while now. But the one right down the road from me closed, or maybe it moved, not sure what happened to them. Love doing power cleans.....really gets the heart pumping!

I crossfit 3x a week and have done so for 2 months. It is brutal, the first three weeks I was in a constant state of soreness. I am almost 2 years post-op and have always been a diligent exerciser with yoga and dancing and running and zumba but even with all that my first class was tough! I can't imagine trying to do this when I was still 100 lbs overweight. I am 50 lbs from goal after a loss of 124 lbs.

I'm a Gold Coast crossfiter and am 3 days out from surgery, my doc said wait between 2-3 month, but start on 2kg, I couldn't stop laughing and replied 'my dead lift and back squat is 100kg'. Oh dear I hope I can hit big scores again and can't wait to get a bloody Kipping pull up,

How are you all going and how long has it taken you to get back?

Well, I'm 32lbs down since my surgery on June 21st. I've been walking and completing the eliptical. I see my doctor this coming Friday (6 wk) for my check up. I hope he lets me get back into CrossFit. I'm sure my back squat won't be lifting 180lbs. I feel energetic, but weak. Before surgery it was hard, but I felt strong. It's good to see there are other CrossFit people out there.

Great Job!

Wendy

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
