A nice walk,

then Grace, 45#, 2:52 (unbroken).

I chose 45# for Grace b/c I have never finished Grace without stopping. I am working on doing things unbroken. So, I am fishing for the bottom weights at which I can do things unbroken. Did Grace in 2:52 without ever putting the bar down. After a rest, I started again at 55# and did ten in a minute then put it down after discerning that next time I ought to be able to get Grace unbroken at 50# or 55#. Yes doing some heavy C&J will make these light C&J seem lighter and easier, so there will be some heavier work on the docket soon.

Tim Babcock 06-14-2013 07:48 AM

Snatch (1 rep max) 115#
Squat Clean Thruster (3,3,3) 85#, 95#, 105#
High Bar Back Squat (20) 145#

I guess that was C-Towns idea of an "easy" day.

JT Kalnay 06-15-2013 03:15 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Saturday June 15, 2013

No "exercise" today, but for those familiar with CrossFit units of measure, I did a little over 5 "sh*t-tons" of work today. This is measured by the amount of weight (approximately 10,500) pounds moved from below grade (up to 11' below grade) up to and onto a truck. I also did another 2 sh*t-tons of work as measured by swinging an 8# sledge approximately 500 times to bust through a cinder block foundation once it had been revealed by moving the aforementioned 5 sh*t-tons of sh*t. Yes a backhoe would have been the right tool, but for the fact we were working under a building and could barely get ourselves down there.

I also did 5 C&J of an 8"x8"x12' beam that we jacked up under the floor to support the floor weight while we removed the offending cinder block wall. I'm not sure how much it weighed, but it was certainly my PR for C&J of lumber.

I wonder what tomorrow's "WOD" will be....

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Climbed at Hinckley with Rick and Norm. 15 laps. Nice day.

5 65#
5 95#
5 115#
5 135#
5 155#
3 175# On the third rep I felt a click in my lower back. I now feel a dull ache there. Hopefully it won't be too bad. I terminated the workout.

JT Kalnay 06-16-2013 07:51 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Sunday June 16, 2013

Held a 20# goblet squat for 3 minutes.
Did some dislocates and general warmup.
Stared at the pullup bar and rings for about ten minutes.
Then finally pulled the trigger on:

Ring Dips

Not for time.

Training partner tweaked his back. Hope it's not too bad.

3 rounds for time.
7 Strict Pull-ups
10 Deadlift 225# (Rx 255/185)


Note: Very few people at C-Town can do strict pull-ups. I saw a lot of people sneaking little kips in to get to the bar.

Tim Babcock 06-18-2013 07:52 AM

1 Problem
3 TGU's each arm 35-45-53-61-72

Got through the TGU's with no problem. Back started to hurt on the hip extensions so I ended the workout. I will see what tomorrow brings.

Bouldered for about an hour or so at CRG. Didn't do anything real hard, just trying to get used to climbing again. The skin didn't last too long, I actually climbed better than I expected.

Tim Babcock 06-19-2013 07:58 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Mobility Work

150 wallball shots for time.
I rode the air-dyne for a mile and walked half a mile for a cool down.

I was on the verge of throwing up the whole time. I tried a coconut oil/coffee mixture this morning before working out (pretty good actually). Probably not a good idea.
Back felt fine.

Jeffrey Fortuna 06-19-2013 03:39 PM

Wednesday 6-19-2013
C-Town CrossFit

High Bar Back Squat (5,5,5,5,5)
Between each set of HBBS, complete 30 double-unders.
5x 95, 5x 135, 5x 155, 5x 185, 5x 185

3 rounds for time of:
7 OHS 45# (Rx 7 Snatches 135/95)
200-meter Sprint
25 Wall Balls 14# WB (Rx 20/14)


My shoulder just can't handle the snatch. Carl suggested doing OHS instead. I was able to do a couple of good squat snatches with 65#, but 95# was just too much.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Friday June 21, 2013 (Summer Solstice)

Made it back to the box today.
Did some front squats, some power cleans and presses, some chin ups, a 400m quick walk, some pullups and some medicine ball squat clean thrusters. Man it's been a while since I was in the box.

Tried to scale everything for the metcon so I could keep moving. I think for metcons, for me, going forward, it's going to be about continuous movement. I think I'll do air squat Karen or 4# Karen until I can do it unbroken and then move up. I'll conside 20# WBS as heavy training.

JT Kalnay 06-22-2013 08:35 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Saturday June 22, 2013

Watched some impressive teamwork at I'm Stronger Partner Competition.

Took some swings and shagged some flies at Indians BP (pictures on FB).

Overall, yet another day in the dream.

JT Kalnay 06-23-2013 07:52 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Sunday June 23, 2013

Nice 4 miler around the farm. 82F at the start, 90F at the end. The breeze helped keep the deer flies to a minimum (only caught 11).

Then 21-15-9
GTO 65#

It was pretty hot in the barf barn.
So I went back and looked at a couple of the posts from January and February, when it was cold and dark. Yes it was hot today, but that's b/c the sun was SHINING!!!

Tim Babcock 06-23-2013 02:51 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
New River Trip June 20, 21, 22 w/Norm
Went to Area 51 the first day and The Other Place the second and third days.
[B]Waco not Hueco[/B] 11c. Second go. Very nice route. Hard.
[B]Tigger's Don't Like Honey[/B] 12a Second go. The bottom was very nice. The top was a little lichen covered which made route finding difficult.
[B]My First Eleven 11b[/B] Did this one twice, once on top rope and once on lead. Norm did a good job red pointing this route. It's very pumpy. Good training route.
[B]Depth Charge[/B] 12b The classic of the area. Long and steep. Three roofs to pull and some technical face climbing in between. Got to the shuts with several hangs. Great route. It would be a hard climb to red point.
Great trip with Norm.

Mobility Work
Overhead squats
5 45
5 65
5 95
5 115
5 135
5 155
These felt really solid. Back felt good. I think these are easy on my back because if the weight starts to go forward you have to dump it right away.

3 max sets of muscle ups with 3 minutes rest in between. 8,7,5 The last set I did bar muscle ups.


As many rounds as possible in 14 minutes
14- Alternating lunges steps
7- Ring dips
21- Russian swings 53#
7 rounds

5 175
5 195
5 215
5 235
Worked in 4 sets of 25 double unders.

Focused on keeping my back straight. When the weight gets heavy enough where I can't, I'm done. Back felt good.

10 rounds
As many rounds as possible in 1 minute
5 Wallball 20#
5 Burpees
Rest 1 Minute
- Start each round on Wallball
- Score total rounds and reps
- 10 reps = 1 round
189 total reps = 18 rounds+9 reps
Rounds were 18, 18, 18, 19, 19, 19, 19, 19, 20, 20
I liked this workout. You could push hard each round because you knew you could rest a minute in between rounds.

I am going to Columbus tomorrow for a 2 day science teacher workshop. I plan on visiting Grandview while I'm there.

goblet squat and kettle bell swing warmup

45# thrusters

24:42 continuous swimming
front crawl up the pool, breast stroke back

the 21-15-9 was significanty harder than the swimming.
which means either (a) I was dogging it in the pool or (b) thrusters and burpees are really *#$^!ing hard...

Jeffrey Fortuna 06-27-2013 04:52 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Thursday 6-27-2013
Bouldered at CRG for an hour. Not a real long work out but it was better than nothing.

Tim Babcock 06-28-2013 08:27 AM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Mobility Work
2 rounds of Cindy
A few reps of dumbbell thrusters at a lighter weight.

EMOM for 10 minutes.
5 dumbbell thrusters using 40# dumbbells. I think a steady diet of these would improve my wall balls a lot.

Complete as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes of:
10 Burpees
25 Double-unders
8 rounds
I was hoping to get 6 rounds. I surprised myself.:)

Buy out
1 bar muscle up every 30 seconds for 5 minutes.

Mary worked out with me this morning. Fun.

pullups, 3x10

It was hot, humid, and sultry in the barf barn.

10am tomorrow morning at the Shed o' Pain for box ups, T2B, and maybe something heavy if my back feels good and I feel saucy.

Also, did some analysis of the last three Opens to help design some training plans for people thinking about the 2014 Open.

Goblet squat and kettle bell warmup.

Deadlifts, working up from 135x10.
Anyone who knows me knows I "add it up at the end".
Today, the end was 415#, and it felt pretty light, like I might have got a PR if I'd pushed it, but didn't feel like pushing it. Here's the video. It's cool to see how the bar bends!

12 minutes, AMRAP
15x24" box up
Got six rounds in 12:12
Then worked on C2B pullups as a progression to bar muscle up.
Getting closer every day!
