David H @minidave

I enjoy hard and intense training in various forms. Used to love Muay Thai, BJJ and a little MMA but got a bit too old for broken bones, bruises and blood so traded it in for more gentle pursuits such as Crossfit, running and road cycling. I'm a rookie skier and can negotiate a red run but face planting and involuntary splits usually ensue.

I ran Tough Mudder again this year and also cycled Venice to Milan in June taking in the Little Dolomites and sweating until there was only salt left. Currrently working through a 2nd cycle of the Wendler 5/3/1 strength programme and getting my head around being diagnosed with FAI with a labral tear. I'm consequentally adapting my exercise around a comfortable range of motion and trying not to kick the sh*t out of my hip. Will see out the summer, fit in a trip or two and then bite the bullet for surgery...

Contributorbronze David H This is going to sound pretty cheesy but mine came about from watching clips of the cast of 300 train at Gym Jones. Shortly after it was released, I starting looking into Metcon and functional training and subsequently found out about Crossfit. Up until then I was purely about martial arts and initially joined Crossfit London online but it would take another two years before I took a class. I wish I had done it sooner! Crossfit ain't perfect but the culture made me take a broader look at what it means to be strong, fit and healthy. It introduced me to concepts and training methods previously unconsidered such as olympic and power lifting, 'gymnastics', mobility and Paleo. In a nutshell, it has helped me focus and made me better at pretty much everything!

Contributorgold Lavinia I Thank you for the follow, David! Nice bio, first part made me smile. Sorry to read about FAI in the second part... hope it's not bilateral :(. Glad you'll have surgery done relatively quickly. Good luck with the challenges!

Thank for the well wishes - I've had a pretty good, injury free run this so I'm not cursing myself too much! I'll deal with it as and when and hard training is good for a tough mental attitude... And good luck with all your athletic endeavours - sounds like you have plenty to keep you busy!
