Re: The Shed 'O Pain
JT and Jeff visited the Shed this morning.

Lots of mobility work.

Skill Ladder (100 points possible for winning, possible 30 bonus competition points for completion of at least one point at all 13 stations (for 50+ 50 bonus competition points for completion of all 18)
13 Stations,
1 Minute stations – as many attempts as possible in the 1 minute.
1 point per completion of task in the minute, Additional points may be awarded 2 Stations may be pre‐determined to skip
Fail a station and you are OUT of the ladder!
1) 30 Second handstand hold against a wall

2) 30 Double Unders

3) Kettlebell Turkish Get‐Up (53lbs/35lbs for 35‐50, 44#/26# for 50+) I did 2, 1 on each side.

4) 3 Dead Hang Pull Ups

5) 2 Ring Dips (may Kip) I did 10 strict.

6) 5 One‐Arm KB OHS (44/26# for all ages) These were easier than I thought

9) 1 20/15ft Rope Climb

10) 3 Strict Handstand Push Ups

11) 5 Yard Handstand Walk (Failed at this one. But made progress. With some practice I might be able to become proficient at these.)

Tie‐Breaker – Highest (most difficult) skill completed, for the most amount of points. – Completion of every station earns 30 overall competition Bonus points.

Afterwards Jeff and I quickly went through my 11 problems.
Fun day.

Here is quick video of Jeff doing a pistol on a kettlebell.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Worked out with Eric at the Field House.

Mobility Work

Overhead Squats-2 reps on the minute for 10 minutes.
Then a couple of 1 rep attempts with plenty of rest between.
1 155#
1 175# PR

Super short fun Met Con.
Do a burpee and a push up at the same time, then do a burpee and 2 push ups, then do a burpee and 3 push ups.... Work up to 10 push ups. You end up doing 55 push ups and 10 burpees altogether. The last 2 sets were tough.

Next we did some pull ups. I did a set 30 pull ups and then worked the butterfly kip a little. Eric has a really smooth butterfly pull up now.

Finally we went outside and practiced handstand walks for a few minutes. I got a legit 2 yard walk.

A really fun workout. We really got after it this afternoon.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
JT visited the Shed today.

Ran through all my problems as a warm up.
Worked in Pronators and Reverse Wrist Curls

Left shoulder is bothering me today so I worked on mobility.

Finished up with 15 sets of campusing and some box jumps. I worked up to 37" with no run up and a little over 40" with a few steps into it.

Sunday October 7, 2012
Tried to shake off some of the rust at the shed.
Some easy TGUs, easy KBS, easy air squats, and lots of groaning.
It was interesting and disgusting that I hurt worse from five days of inactivity and travel than I would have if I'd been CrossFitting. Apparently Neil Young is correct, that it's better to burn out, than it is to rust....

Monday October 8, 2012
Today's report can be found on my blog....

And some social commentary....

Tim Babcock 10-08-2012 02:58 PM

10 Pronators

1 Problem
10 GHD Sit-ups
10 Reverse Wrist Curls
5 Rounds

1 additional problem

I worked a new problem for 15 minutes. No send.

I finished by practicing the glide kip for a few minutes. I'm trying to be able to do it without letting my elbows flare and as straight as possible. Hard.

Tim Babcock 10-10-2012 04:43 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Worked out with Eric at the Field House.

Mobility Work

1 Power Clean on the minute for 10 minutes.
135, 145, 155, 165-Fail, 165-Fail, 160-Fail 160, 165, 175-not even close, 175-again, not even close.
I got really frustrated with these. The first 3 felt easy, then I hit a brick wall. I took off some weight and did a few with Eric watching my form. I have a lot of work to do on these. At the end I did I practiced some squat cleans. I worked up to 135#. These were better than I thought they might be.

Meanwhile, Eric worked up to 265#. Which was a PR for him. Great job, Dude!

Then a Met Con...
100 push ups
100 air squats
100 pull ups
Not too bad right? But wait-On the minute you had to do 5 Burpees. You had to start with 5 burpees too.
In addition to all the push ups, air squats, and pull ups I also did 115 burpees.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Tuesday 10-9-2012
Second week of CVNP Fall Trail Running Series.
This week was at Station Bridge in Brecksville Reservation. Start with a 3 mile out-and-back on the towpath. At two points on the course, first one at the turnaround and the second just before the finish, was an optional hill loop. On each hill were three turnaround points. Make it to the first turnaround and get a token worth two minutes off your time, make it to the second and get another two minutes off, make it to the third and get another two minutes. Do both of the optional hill spurs and get a total of twelve minutes off you time. Also, at the end of one of the spurs, is the option to go beyond the last turnaround. It may or may not be worth it. As it turns out, it was not worth any extra points. I did both of the hill hill spurs for the maximum bonus points, and I certainly needed them because I wasn't running very fast. My finish time was just over forty minutes, but I don't know what the total distance was. I am guessing around five miles; three flat and two hills. Another fun night in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. :)

Tim Babcock 10-11-2012 04:46 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Worked out with Eric at the Field House.

Mobility Work

Double Unders
6:33 PR (Last PR was 7:24.)
Double unders went really well. I was unbroken until the 20 round. I had two misses in that round. I think doing them on a hard floor made them easier.
I rested for a few breathes on the 40, 30, and 20 rounds on the sit-ups. I think there is still a little room for improvement, maybe sub 6 minute. Sounds like a goal.

Front squats-I started with 95# pounds and slowly increased the weight up to a PR of 185#. I focused on getting really low and getting back on my heels. I elevated my heels on a couple of 5 or 10 pound plates.
Impressed with Eric's performance on the push jerks, I practiced doing jerks from the front rack position. Eric made some very helpful suggestions and soon I was doing a legit 135# push jerk from the front. I need to work on elbow and shoulder flexibility.
Eric-Thanks for the encouragement and the tips today. It helped.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Tuesday 10-16-2012
Third week of CVNP Fall Trail Running Series.
This week was at Kendall Lake. The theme for tonight was "how far can you go?" You have 48 minutes to go as far as you can with a couple of options. Everyone started with a 2.7 mile loop over extremely hilly, rough terrain. At the end of the loop, you had a choice: you can do the last 0.3 miles to the finish and end with three miles, or you can continue on to do 1.0 mile laps around the lake trail or you can repeat the first loop again plus the sprint to the finish making 6 miles total. If you do the laps around the lake trail, there are markers every tenth of a mile, so when the 48 minutes are up, you go back to the last marker you passed and that's the distance you get credit for. If you choose to do the first loop a second time, you get credit for six miles unless you don't finish the second loop, in which case you get penalized one mile and only get credit for five miles. I did the first 3.0 miles in about 27 minutes, and went on to do 2.2 miles around the lake for a total of 4.9 miles in 48 minutes. I was actually doing very well at the beginning, until about 1.5 miles into the first loop when the hills finally got the best of me. My legs just didn't want to move anymore. That's what happens when you do leg workouts three days in a row before a cross-country run. I managed to get a little back on the relatively flat loop around the lake, and actually finished pretty strong. I was hoping to do five miles, but was just short by about .05 miles. My friend Kevin finished with 5.6 miles. This was totally his kind of race. He just LOVES doing hilly trail runs. You couldn't ask for more perfect weather for a fall evening trail run. Another fun night in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Tim Babcock 10-17-2012 04:54 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Worked out at the Field House with Eric. Thanks for waiting for me.
