Ran at the rec-center.
3x 10 min. with rest and stretching between intervals.

The idea was to increase the pace for the shorter intervals, thereby increasing the total mileage.

Tim Babcock 02-28-2013 05:00 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Saturday 3-2-2013
Youngstown State University bouldering comp last on in the University Bouldering Comp series.

The problems were rated between 50 and 550 points (only one 550). I warmed up on one 300 point problem, then flashed three 500s. The fourth 500 stopped me in my tracks. I worked it for a bit, struggling on the last move, before moving on to get on some other problems. I did a couple of 450s, one on the first go and one on the third, as well as several failed flash attempts on a few more and a couple of failed attempts at a couple more 500s. Returned to 500 number four and finally sent it after about ten attempts.

I finished fourth in advanced for the day and I think fourth overall for the series.

Lena climbed really well but didn't place in women's advanced, partially because she forgot to count one her 450 point problems, and partially because her excesses wife blatantly cheated. She still got second overall for the series.

It was a lot of fun with a lot of great problems.

Already missing Florida, but happy to be home safe and sound in Ohio.
Did the retest of March 1, 2012 today:
2012 (13:53)
2013 (7:44)


@Tim, you are crushing the heavier weights and the big lifts. Rock on.
@Jeff, 4th overall in the series, rock rock on on.
@climbers, I got back on my bouldering wall for a few minutes today, it's been a while...

Tim Babcock 03-03-2013 04:01 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Bouldered at CRG for about 2 hours. Not a lot of zip today.

JT-Super job on your retest. A 6 minute improvement is impressive. We need to get together and do a wod.

Jeff-Great job on the University Bouldering Series. Sounded like a good time.

Jeffrey Fortuna 03-03-2013 05:11 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Sunday 3-4-2013
10 rounds of:
5 Front Squats EMOM 95#

I tried doing it with 115, but that was a little too much to start with. 95 was very doable, so I'll most likely bump it up to 105 next time.

Holly Rembielak wants to do the tough mudder so I told her I'd do it with her. Are you guys interested?

@JT- I'm tentatively planning to throw down with Tim at The Shed next weekend. You interested?

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Worked out at the Field House with Eric.
Warm Up
Dubs, a round of Cindy, burpees, squats at a light weight

EMOM-2 back squats
135, 135, 135, 135, 135, 145, 155, 165, 175, 185
Focused on getting low and rebounding out of the bottom (a little).

3 clapping push-ups
5 hand release push-ups
7 regular push-ups
30 Dubs
5 rounds
5:22-Did this workout on 12/2/12 @ 6:54. Happy with the improvement.
I got a new pair of Merrill minimalist trail running shoes (like yours Jeff). I think these really helped with the dubs.

Afterwards we practiced HSPU's and did some stretching. Eric showed me a new wrestling mobility exercise. I like it. We also speculated what the first open wod would be this year. I'm pretty excited about it.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Warm Up
A round of Cindy, mobility work, a few light thrusters

3 65
3 75
3 85
3 95
3 105
3 115
Worked on linking thrusters together smoothly. These will probably pop up during The Open. These still feel awkward to me.

10 rounds
2 HSPU -Used two 25# plates and Ab Mat.
3 ring dips
4 push-ups
5 burpees
This was an upper body smoker. I thought I could easily get under 10 minutes. Had to push hard to make it.

Afterwards I tried a few muscle ups with "bailing forward." At first I was scared to let myself roll over. I made sure I had lots of padding. It ended up not being too bad.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Wednesday March 6, 2013

Rest Day

13.1 = 17 minutes of burpees with progressively harder snatches. Wow.
I hope to get a chance to try a 165# snatch, but don't realistically think I'll get there.

I know I can do 40 burpees in about 4 minutes.
Then I know I can do 30x75# in about 4 minutes.
Then I know can do 30 burpees in about 4 more minutes.
Then I know I can do some 135# snatches, but after 12 minutes of burpees and snatches, that's not the same as doing 135# snatches fresh. Still, in the 50-54 age group, getting ONE 135# snatch will separate me from at least 1/2, maybe 3/4 of the competition...
Anyone in my demographic who gets one 165# snatch will be in the top 3%.

Going to do some walking and light snatch practice tomorrow then do the wod at noon on friday at Ctown CrossFit. If I'm not happy with my performance, I'll be doing it again in the Barf Barn (or maybe Shed 'o Pain) and uploading the video...

Good luck everyone!

Rest day.

Started feeling stuffy and scratchy a little after lunch. Of course I get a cold right before the open. Decided to take the day off and get some rest. Making a wonderful paleo dinner of salmon, sweet potato, broccoli and cauliflower.

JT Kalnay 03-07-2013 05:46 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Thursday March 7, 2013

Walked a mile to the box in a little snow flurry.
Did some stretching and easy snatch technique work.
Then did a couple of hours of coaching.
Then walked home in a flurry.


Am doing 13.1 tomorrow, my goal is 40-30-30-5 (105), and if I have an exceptional day, 40-30-30-30-20-1 (151). But, I'll be thrilled with 105. It's the burpees that are going to slow me down and gas me...

JT Kalnay 03-08-2013 12:43 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Friday March 8, 2013

13.1, 115 reps, profound dissapointment...


Tim Babcock 03-08-2013 06:35 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Completed Open Wod 13.1 at NFT Crossfit.

Proceed through the sequence below completing as many reps as possible in 17 minutes of:
40 Burpees
75 pound Snatch, 30 reps
30 Burpees
135 pound Snatch, 30 reps
20 Burpees
165 pound Snatch, 30 reps
10 burpees
210 pound Snatch, as many reps as possible
103 reps
What a great experience! My goal was 101 so I'm quite satisfied. The atmosphere was charged. Lots of cheering and camaraderie. My buddy Eric throwin' down right beside me and JT cheering and coaching me up. JT took a video of my rep 103.
Eric busted out a 165. Great job brother!

Saturday March 9, 2013

Feeling worked from 13.1 yesterday.

Going to a nutrition seminar today, then walking around the farm and playing in the barn with the kids.

Walking and stretching and playing today will be just right. Skills (dubs, hspu) and mobility and a light wod will be just the ticket for tomorrow...

Metolious Hangboard Workout

Tomorrow I am thinking about doing the push-up/rope climb workout from a couple of days ago on the main site. Pat Sherwood got 312 push-ups and 39 rope ascents in the 30 minutes. Just sayin'.

Tim Babcock 03-10-2013 11:13 AM

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

JT coached up Jeff on the snatch.
Jeff completed Open WOD 13.1. He had no problem getting 100 reps. Good job Jeff!

Front Squats
5 95#
5 115#
5 135#
5 155#
2 175#

Complete as many reps as possible in 30 minutes of:
Rope climbs and push-ups
Count the number of trips up the rope and the number of push-ups within the half hour.
288 push-ups and 36 rope ascents

I did 36 rounds of 1 rope ascent and 8 push-ups. Attention Crossfit HQ: I want this to be the next Open wod! ;)

Jeffrey Fortuna 03-10-2013 07:08 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Went to The Shed today to do my CrossFit games open 13.1 WOD.

JT gave a crash course in the snatch, and it was off and running.

I had planned to do the first 40 burpees in five minutes, the 30 snatches in seven minutes and the next 30 burpees in the remaining five minutes.

As it turned out, I did the first set of burpees in about 2-2/2 minutes and finished the snatches by 8:40 on the clock leaving a ton of time to finish the second set of burpees.

I had plenty of time do a couple more snatches, but seeing how the weight almost doubled and I had never even done a snatch before, I elected to quit before I got hurt. Still, I think I did a great job and I am very pleased with my effort.

A big thanks to Tim and JT for spending the time with me to work on the snatch and then record the WOD for submission. Unfortunately, I was not able to upload the video and therefore the workout doesn't count for the games. I'm sorry I wasted the twenty bucks.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Sunday March 10, 2013

Some coaching in the shed 'o pain with a very coachable athlete.
Some skills practice (HSPU, MU, pistols)
Some wall balls and dubs.

Then, four hours of playing in the barn with the kids.
Note to self, just b/c you can still beat high school kids playing basketball doesn't mean it's a good idea....

Bouldered at CRG for am hour. Didn't have any energy, everything felt hard. I tried to do a system workout with Lena, but just didn't have it. Still not over the cold.

Looking forward, in a masochistic kind of way, to hearing what the next games WOD is. I'm planning to do it at C-Town on Friday while Alisa is at gymnastics.

Got in a couple of hours volunteer coaching this afternoon. Very rewarding to see a woman go from zero dubs to ten dubs. Which reminds me... Jeff? Are you speeding up your hands???

Did I mention I will be stepping up and stepping down in 13.2?
