Problems In Samantha Briggs' Early Career
Sadly, in 2012, the Crossfit athlete Samantha Briggs was sidelined by an unfortunate knee injury.
As such, she officially withdrew from the competition midway through the CrossFit Open, the first stage of qualifying for the CrossFit Games in March.
She cited maltracking of her right kneecap as the reason behind her withdrawal. Maltracking has been an ongoing issue for the last couple of years.
Briggs later learned she also had a condition called a fractured patella.
During the year 2012, she changed her approach to training via experimentation.
According to the head trainer at CrossFit 3D, a CrossFit gym that Briggs frequented in the past, the Crossfit athlete's approach to training in her early years included very high volume metabolic conditioning.
This exercise resulted in her quite literally smashing herself into the ground.
With a new awareness of her injuries, Brigg's coach, Steadman, and sports therapist, James Jowsey, subsequently programmed new workouts that would not cause further damage to the athlete.
Briggs eased off many workouts involving her legs to reduce damage and spent time developing her upper body gymnastics skills on exercises like the pull-up bar, rope, and gymnastics rings.
She also opened her own CrossFit affiliate, Train Manchester.
