Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Thursday August 15, 2013

@Tim, that's a big OHS!

Walked about 3 miles doing various errands around downtown Cleveland.

Then, 1 hour class with USAW @ Coca CrossFit in North Ridgeville. Spent the first half hour working on the power clean, then the second half hour building up to a 1RM on C&J (237#). Got some excellent personal instruction, will likely go back for more of these small group classes.

JT Kalnay 08-16-2013 06:28 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Friday August 16, 2013

REST DAY! (see yesterday's 1 hour C&J session for the rationale...)

Shed? Saturday? Sunday?

Tim Babcock 08-16-2013 07:31 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Mobility Work (a lot)

With a 45 pound barbell, 21-15- and 9 reps
Turkish Get-ups, alternating arms
Sots press (I used 11#, 16#, & 21#)
The Sots press will expose any mobility issues. Noticed I used a much lighter weight on these than rx'd. I tried this movement a few years ago and could only do the pvc.
I didn't time this wod. TGU's shouldn't be rushed.
I used the 5kg bar on the Sots press. It's coming in handy.

JT - Sounds like the weightlifting class was very informative. 237# is a big lift. Is that a PR?

Tim Babcock 08-16-2013 11:19 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Sorry JT, I didn't notice the Shed question. I plan on climbing Saturday at the Shed and doing a workout Sunday at the Shed. You are welcome to come both or any of the days. I will text Jeff to see if he's interested too.

Tim Babcock 08-17-2013 08:56 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain

2 Problems
10 reverse wrist curls 31#
5 rounds

Then I did endurance circuits (at least that's what I call them). I linked my 3 warm ups problems. I attempted 3 sets. Didn't quite complete the last set.

Also got to see JT squat some heavy weight.

JT Kalnay 08-17-2013 09:01 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Saturday August 17, 2013

Infinite amount of time to work up to back squat 1RM
1x325 (shed record) (so far the plan was going pretty g)

Then 20x135 (this is where my plan for the day started to dissolve, like my thighs and calves)

Had planned to do 13.2, 10 Minute AMRAP
5x115# sto
10x115# dead
15x24" box up (did 169 reps in the Open)

But... halfway through the second round, both my timer and motivation quit at the same time. So, I slogged through five rounds, decidedly NOT for time, and then bagged it.

Tomorrow will be a metcon day.

Tim Babcock 08-18-2013 08:40 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
10 KBS 35#
5 pull-ups
5 burpees
3 rounds

AMRAP for 20 minutes:
5 muscle ups
10 KBS 72#
8 rounds + 2 reps

Afterwards JT and I did 10 laps around the Shed pinching 2 25# plates. We alternated trips.

JT Kalnay 08-18-2013 08:47 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Sunday August 18, 2013

There was a real funk in the Shed this morning. After a few overhead movements and a few HSPU practices, I realized where the funk was coming from. Ask not for whom the funk tolls, it funks from thee....

Did some HSPU practice, got several three abmat HSPU.
One step at a time.

Then, completely butchered what was supposed to be:
50 double under buy-in
ten rounds of:
10x95# presses
10x45# KBS
50 double under buy-out.

I got to 49 dubs in about 2:30, but then simply could not get the 50th dub. I tried until 6:00 but couldn't get it, so I moved on to the ten rounds.

The ten rounds turned into 6 rounds, and I was spent and bent, so I bagged the 50 double under cash out b/c I wasn't able to get the 50th dub on the buy in. Why flog a dead horse?

So, then Tim and I alternated farmer's carry with 25# plates around the Shed. I had no idea you could actually go around the shed. I've been to the shed maybe a thousand times over the past decade and until today had no idea that the back wall of the shed was not on the property line, that there was a farmer's carry course that wound around the shed.

Anyway, after the farmer's carry (which are making typing a real challenge) I went back in the shed to try to get the elusive 50th dub. After about ten failed attempts Tim pointed out that the rope had actually gone under my feet twice and the dub was complete once the rope passed under the second time. Duh. This is how I'd "failed" on the 50 dub buy in about 50 times. So, the metcon was actually about 200 single unders, 49 double unders, and about 50 failed double unders that actually were double unders, followed by the six rounds of 10. Strange things happen when they turn off the oxygen...

Bouldered at CRG for two hours.

5 rounds of:
5 problems (mostly easy to moderate)
50 dubs (the first set was actually 100 singles)
10 push-ups

Tim Babcock 08-19-2013 05:51 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
I took about a 3.5 mile walk. I ran 10 50-60 yard strides during. Feeling pretty sore from the heavy kettlebell swings yesterday.

Monday 8-19-2013
No real work out tonight. Moved a s***ton of stone and rubber chips. By the end of the week, the front bouldering area at CRG will have the same gymnastics pad and foam as the bouldering cave. Lena and I are planning to move the system tiles to the new training wall upstairs on Wednesday night.

JT Kalnay 08-20-2013 04:51 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Monday August 19, 2013

Held a goblet squat.
Practiced burpees (got 11 in one minute).
Practiced wall ball shots (got 15 unbroken).
Helped another athlete finish a burpee/ambulation WOD.

Did squat clinic with Danny Urcyo and Julie Foucher.
Did 15 minutes of shoulder mobility, then got a PR OHS (the # is still so low it doesnt' deserve posting, let's just say there was actually a plate on the bar (old PR was a 45# bar)).

The shoulder mobility helped get the bar back over my head and keep it there as I descended. The squat clinic helped me feel the weight on my heels throughout the movement and helped me feel keeping my knees out when they wanted to collapse in and helped me feel my shoulders and chest starting to roll forward.

Tim Babcock 08-20-2013 07:19 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain

Completed all my problems on my regular circuit. Starting to feel really solid. I'm saving the orange problem for fall and when Jeff can come over. We can work it together.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Thursday August 23, 2013

Why can't every day be like 8/23/13?

Did one hour of mobility, stretching, and warming up.
Then got one hour of USAW coaching on the snatch in a 1:4 setting.
For the first time ever I felt the "flip" from the power position to overhead.
When that bar gets weightless and flips and you jump under it feels like cheating and magic and power and like being young and strong and useful all at once.

Then had a 1:3 deadlift clinic with Julie Foucher.
Revelations and records were involved!

Coaching and technique, get some!

JT Kalnay 08-24-2013 10:23 AM
