Rich Froning jumped on the podcast wagon recently by creating his own podcast, Froning and Friends. Four episodes have been released so far, but the first one contains a small tidbit about Froning’s knee this past season.

While talking about CrossFit Mayhem’s experience at the Games and even Regionals, Froning casually mentions that he tore the meniscus in his knee the week prior to the Central Regional in May. He comments that not many people knew about this.

Because of this injury, Froning limited his running and squatting throughout the entire prep for the CrossFit Games. The lack of lower body training definitely affected Froning on the Rowing Worm event. The video below cuts to where Froning mentions his injury.
