On occasion we draw blood during workouts. We don't strive for this but on occasion it happens. The torn hands during lots of pull-ups (or toes-to-bar during WOD 11.5 as above) or a scraped shin during deadlifts or cleans. We've posted how to prevent these things from happening in the past, but there are 2 important steps to take after this happens.

First and foremost, take care of yourself. Wash it out. Get it nice and clean with good old fashioned soap and water, hold a paper towel on there to stop the bleeding, and finish it off with a band-aid or two. There's also an important second step: head over to where it happened with the clorox wipes, whether it's the pull-up bar or o-bars, and clean up your DNA! If you can't do it, let your coach know so they can take care of it for you. This is important to do for obvious reasons. We've found a couple bars with some old blood on them recently so we wanted to throw out this reminder.

We try to keep the place clean (well somewhat clean!) but managing individual events like this is hard. Often times we have no idea when folks bleed, so we leave it to you guys to clean it up or let us know so we can take care of it before someone else grabs the bar. Thanks for your help!

  1. Hey guys, don’t forget to sign up in MindBody if you;’re throwing down tomorrow, even if you’re doing the Open. That sign-up list is how we generate the heats. Thanks!
