Attention lovely ladies of CrossFit ABQ: I have to admit, I love all your lovely long hair, with your pretty, bouncy pony tail. But, I would like to see a bit of a change in our gym.
A couple of weeks ago I saw the #pineapplebuncampaign and wanted to see what it was all about. It turns out #pineapplebuncampaign is a campaign to encourage all the ladies to put their hair up in a high bun when they have a barbell on their back. This stems from an accident that occurred where a young lady had 250# on her back and her hair (which was in a long pony tail) got wrapped around the bar pulling her to the floor. The injuries she sustained included multiple broken bones. I want us to learn from this injury and keep everyone safe in the gym. So next time we have back squats or anything coming from your back, take a second and secure your hair high on top of your head. If you need an extra hair tie, we have some in the office so let one of us know. Let’s stay safe and keep working hard!
