5. Modify your training load
Particularly if you are new to the sport, you will notice very quickly that you are doing some form of squatting, lunging or jumping everyday of the week. If you notice your knees start to become niggly, first try to modify the exercises within the WOD such as reducing the depth, weight or reps of the exercise. Another easy modification is to replace the aggravating exercise with a non-aggravating exercise for example replacing the walking lunge with a squat variation or running with everyone’s favourite assault bike or vice versa.
As all Cross-Fitter’s know, not being able to Rx a workout, having to modify a WOD or worse, having to rest completely from a WOD never sits well. Hence it is vitally important that if you are experiencing knee pain that you get it checked out by a Physiotherapist to the get the right diagnosis for the right treatment and management plan. Remember that we are here for you – the quicker you get your injury looked at the sooner we can modify and make a plan together to get you back hitting your PR’s.
