Re: The Shed 'O Pain
New River Trip with family.
Friday-Took a long walk along Endless Wall. Mary went with me. We had a good time.
Today-Climbed at Meadow with Mark Stevenson and Damon. Climbed decently. All new climbs to me. Did a 9, 10a, 11a, 11c, 12a, 9, and a 10. One hung the 11c and got to the anchors on the 12a on my third try. Great to climb at the New again.

Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014

Two laps around the farm (only recorded one of them)

Re-introduction to CrossFit Sampler
10 jumping pullups
two minute goblet squat
10 deadlifts at 135#
ten pass throughs
ten times back and forth on the balance beam
ten double unders (which required about 45 single unders)
ten toe tap and side to side shimmy footwork slides
ten wall balls (6# to 9' target)
ten ring dips (with black band)
ten push presses with 35#
ten push ups on my knees
ten burpees

Training for Peru was all about walking uphill and doing box ups.
It got me in shape for Peru and got me over the 15,200 pass, but it is a completely different motor than required for CrossFit, or for anything "high intensity". Training for Oly lifting got me ridiculously fast and strong for a single lift, but doing ten of anything is a challenge. Have decided that competing in Oly lifting is not the right path for me b/c it produces a fitness and a body that I don't want. I want a 185# lean yoga climber runner biker swimmer crossfit play kickball with the kids body that is functional.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Mobility Work
10 KBS 35, 45, 61#
5 pull ups
5 burpees
3 rounds

Power Clean
Slowly worked up to 190#. I think that ties a PR. Tried 195# several times. Very close. One time I had it on my chest and just couldn't get my elbow under it fast enough. Next time.

100 pull ups
100 wall balls
I couldn't mentally stomp the gas pedal on the wall balls. Sub 15 minutes would be a good time for me.

EMOM for 10 minutes
20 double unders
By the end I was hitting all 20 pretty consistently.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Tuesday April 22, 2014

Walked a mile, did 40 bench presses each arm with 20# dumbells.
Held Warrior One on both sides as long as I could (which was about a minute each b/c it's really hard to hold my arms parallel to the horizon).

walked a mile, 2 minute goblet squat, 5 snatches with 45#, 10 OHS with 45#, 15 wall balls with 11# ball to 10' target, held a hand stand and did 1" hspu for a minute.

Tomorrow I might try to move something heavier than 45# or 135#.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain

walked 1 mile

10 deadlifts at 135# (this felt light, thank goodness)
10 deadlifts at 225# (this felt heavy, crap)
10 C&J at 135# (this felt okay, thank goodness)
10 snatch at 95# (this also felt okay, thank goodness)

I was really worried what the weights would feel like after three weeks with no Oly lifting and just 2 months until the Pan Am Games...

Shed? Saturday? Sunday?

Thanks Norm. I was definitely didn't have my usual spring climbing fitness, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
We went to the Upper Meadow. We climbed at all three buttresses. There are a lot of new climbs. All of them were new to me. Access to the Upper Meadow is unchanged. I would go back. There are several routes I would like to finish.

Friday April 25, 2014

After three weeks off Oly lifting (two weeks in Peru), it was fun/scary to get back on the platform today. Felt weak and slow, and really felt the loss of flexibility in the wrists, but managed 80% of my qualifying weights, which is a good start. Just two months until the Pan Am Games in Toronto!!

Re: The Shed 'O Pain

Walked a mile.

3 hour session with Dr. Don Bisesi. He found a power leak in my setup during Oly coaching today, and also came up with a fix, rather than just pointing out the flaw. I was so focused on the stripper butt that I couldn't identify what was causing it. Looks like slack in the shoulders created the condition that allowed the power generation to be disconnected from the bar which in turn caused the stripper butt. Hit a few nice snatches after the lesson. He had a nice quote too: "Olympic lifting doesn't make you strong. Olympic lifting is a manifestation of the strength you create through deadlifts, squats, and presses." Interesting.

Walked a mile.

Shed tomorrow for heavy deadlifts and some metabolic conditioning.

I have been working out my butt off since Sunday ripping out floorboards and floor joists. Haven't had time to workout this week until tonight. Right now the Shed sits bare all the way down to the ground. Stone and then cement go in next week. Seven days later and I will move back in. I hope all goes well.

JT Kalnay 05-01-2014 03:55 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Walked a couple miles on tough terrain.

Then did five rounds of:
10 Pull downs
10 presses
10 bench pressed

Uncertain of the weights because it was in the hotel mini gym.
Lifted to failure in all three movements.
Those machines put some odd stresses on your joints.

Tim Babcock 05-03-2014 02:30 PM

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Bouldered at CRG with Jeff and Kent. Sent many moderate problems. Fun.
Finished up with 5 sets of 5 dips. Added a little weight to each set.

In the "Garage 'o Grunts" while the Shed 'o Pain is being renovated (upgraded) with a new concrete floor.

Goblet squat, OHS (10x11#, 10x45#).
Really felt like I was cranking out the OHS.
Might be time to move up to 55#.

Front squats up to 205#.
Pistol work.

Death by Kettlebell (35#, made it to 14)

Farmer's Walk
Five rounds with heavy kettlebells.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain

Didn't feel 100% today, and had some sciatica in the left leg.

Walked 1 mile.
Hip mobility, shoulder mobility, OHS 10x45#.

10 clean and jerks at 95#.
10 clean and jerks at 135#.
These all felt light. Would have been interesting to go heavy, even though I feel like crap.

1.5 hours of Oly practice with Coach Dan Bell.

Pan Am meet is July 21-22 in Toronto, which is approaching quickly.

Worked on squat cleans and jerks today.

Re: The Shed 'O Pain
Thursday May 8th

Still feeling less than 100%.

Walked 1 mile
2 minute goblet squat
10 OHSx45#

Three rounds of:
10 Dumbell presses with each hand
10 pull downs (simulating bar muscle up)
5 dips (with green band assistance)
5 T2B (discovered that if I bend my toes in and towards my shins they are much more likely to hit the bar, which is a big problem for a guy with T-rex arms like me)
20 single unders
2 double unders
(This whole "metcon" was made at a pedestrian pace b/c I was having a hard time breathing due to the cold/sinus infection/spring allergies and b/c my body was feeling pummeled by yesterday's Oly practice).

At the end, did 5 pistols to a box on each side.
