My coach has really spent a lot of time talking to me about the difference between "soreness" and "injury"... even on soreness he has me rating it on a scale from 1-10.. if it's 7-10 - then working out is a "no go"... he also stresses it's max reps while still maintaining good technique.. if technique slacks then injury can happen...
So no, we're not a "power through" kind of box.. although I'm sure there are those that do..

Our box definitely does not go with the "power through" for injuries. They are very good about checking with people and making sure every thing is working well.
I have seen (and been a participant, unfortunately) a lot of modifications and scales that can be made for various injuries. Better to scale than to make an injury worse that drags on forever.
I did take time off for a month about two years ago when I had a partial tear of my plantar fascia. Not much else to do - on crutches for two weeks and had to baby it for the next couple weeks after that. Actually was nice to take a break - I felt more energized when I returned.

I got caught up in competition training and missed a few weeks and to be honest I was hard pressed to come up with questions every week any way so we are switching to a monthly thread instead.
HOW DOES YOUR BOX AND SPECIFICALLY YOU, DEAL WITH INJURIES? (I.E. TAKE TIME OFF, MODIFY WODS, OR JUST POWER THROUGH)
*I modify, I lost 6 months to knee surgery I don't need to lose anymore. My coaches are great about working around injuries.
