    TOW – I’m in need of some help. I have a CF Comp coming up (roughly 3 weeks) that involves pistols. Up to this point, I have yet to be able to perform one although I haven’t tried in maybe 3 months. With that said, I’m looking for some guidance on what worked for any of you who seemed to struggle with them. I’ve already googled this, and 50+ vids pop up. If you have a specific vid that really helped it click for you, I’d appreciate it if you dropped the link below. Thanks, and in return, I will perform 10-25 UB c0ckpunches if I actually get a few pistols over the coming weeks.

    • Dylan Kucish

      Barbell Weighted StepUps on a 24” box. It puts the hip below the knee building strength out of the hole without actually putting you in a pistol.

    • John Rogers

      I second that. We may need to take the Exchange Auto Sales bike for a ride around the FOB just to get some riding in!!!

    Dyna. F’ yeah. First purchase… forward-controls. Keep it between the ditches.

    Hello,I’m curious if anybody that posts here has dealt with a tennis elbow type injury in the past due to the Olympic lifts. Halfway through these workouts, the muscles surrounding the lateral part of my elbow become extremely inflamed(dead arm type feel). the pain escalates mainly during the clean and jerk phases of the workouts. The pain subsides after 15-20 minutes of no activity. Stretching and mobilizing is a huge part of my warm up routine. Any suggestions on what could be causing the inflammation? I took a week off and the pain went away for a while but has returned.

    • Nick Wall

      Kevin, I’ve been having some serious issues with my right elbow. Sounds like the same thing you have. I have to roll out my forearms with the barbell to get the muscles to relax and that helps my elbow quite a bit. A little bit of icy hot works too but that just hides the problem, doesn’t really fix it, but it helps you get through the workouts some.

      • 75Rampage

        Glad to hear I’m not alone (well, not that glad). Your pain description sounds exactly like what I have dealt with when cleaning. I have stopped doing cleans because of this, hoping that whatever it is heals. Some times I just do jerks to get that work in. Nick, can you describe how you roll out your forearms? Do you mean wrist curls?

        • Nick Wall

          @75Rampage

          Not wrist curls. Think sitting down on the floor and using the bar to roll out your quads. Lay all the way down and just stick your forearm under the end of the bar and smash / roll the bar back and forth over the muscles from wrist up to the elbow. Then stretch the forearms also.

    • Random

      Flexbar by Thera-Band. I have dealt with severe tennis elbow since I was a little kid. Started using that thing, along with regular mobility work on wrists/elbows once I started crossfit (the palms flat on the ground thing), and it is completely gone. I couldn’t explain it if I wanted to, but I did 3 sets of 10-15 of the exercise they recommended for tennis elbow almost every day for a month or so and it just went away. Hasn’t come back since and I stopped using it a year ago. I also used it for a bad case of medial epicondylitis I had and it got rid of that, too (different exercise). They key is not doing the exercises when it’s inflamed or you could make it worse. I think you can duplicate the exercise with small dumbbells and/or resistance bands as well.

    Army APFT this morning. Nothing to boast about other than I’m exhausted and putting in the work today was tough.
    1) 205
    2) 245
    S1) 265-305-325-325
    S2) 205-225-245-245 (backed my 1RM max down 10#s because I have been consistently failing the prescribed reps on Tuesday’s squats)
    Did the pullups between the sets of front squats, but just strict C2B without weight. Bench and GHRs tomorrow.
