Can't Keep A Good Man Down

Jake was recently accepted to NYU to study economics and math. This fall, he will be sporting violet while he plays volleyball for NYU. Last week Jake badly sprained his thumb during a tournament. Did Jake miss a day of CrossFit due to his injury? No.

He has proved himself to be a stand out example of what to do if you are injured. He ruled out serious injury (an orthopedist assessed his thumb), developed a recovery plan, communicated with his coach about his limitations, and is focusing on the movements he can do as he recovers. Following this format, Jake was able to PR his box jump by 12.5 inches, and use his old PR in an AMRAP a total of 46 times. Way to go Jake. NYU’s volleyball team chose a solid athlete.


Seven rounds for time of:
165 pound Thruster, 3 reps
