Probably should have stopped after 3 rounds due to slight back pains , very slight and hopefully rehab pains whatever they are.

My hands a very sore.
Nice one, Scott You got me by 7 burpees and 2 DL's.

I hope your back is ok. My abs and upper back are sore from that one today.

then it turned into a monthly competition between brandx/kempie and...some scots(?) of who can create the most painfully amazing workout. they're longer/heavier wods.

you can pick a day during the month to do the painstorm instead of the posted wod. (i suggest right before a rest day. lol) they're pretty awesome.

jeff martin used to post scalings of them on brandx, but hasn't in a while.

actually...kempie, why DID that stop? i get the gist of scaling nowadays, but i don't want to make it too easy for myself.

Yeah the Scottish guy was me...and it was 9 hours on the bus from Glasgow to London to workout with Karl Steadman, Graham Hayes and Pete Galloway among others, starting back in 2005.

Jeff started doing them too, then we took it in turns to come up with these stupid workouts.

Some of them were really stupid!

Re: Painstorm - May '09

I had resolved to no longer contribute to the message board but the UK CrossFitters have a place in my heart:

The History:
The first Painstorm was a gathering of some of the UK Crossfitters. Given that some of them traveled up 6 hours (by bus) for the meeting, no one felt like doing Fran and calling it a day. So the first Painstorm was something like warm up one round of Helen, followed by a typical CF WOD, followed by the Secret Service Snatch test, and of course partying afterwards.

The Painstorm soon evolved into a monthly competition between CrossFit London (represented by Kempie and Karl Steadman), CrossFit Central Scotland (represented by Davie and his crew) some displaced US military (Gordon Limb and some marine flyers in London, Brian White and his group called team Fallujah) and the group from Brand X. Dan Colson from CrossFit Rockford has "happily" joined in for the last three or four.

Karl, Davie and Jeff take turns creating the Painstorms. They tend to be long efforts, in keeping with the original tradition. Weights and reps are scaled of course, so everyone can join in.

The Future:
Each month we will post the Painstorm workout so other affiliates can compete and post times...though the veterans doubt you even have the guts to try it, let alone compete with them.

50 Kb SDHP

It should be also noted that Davie Easton (CF Central Scotland) and Karl Steadman (CF Manchester) and I met through the Painstorms. They later traveled to Brand X, in 2004, and got their CrossFit Level One training certificates. They stayed in our home for 10 days and became life long friends. We traveled to the UK and Ireland in late '04 gave a couple of CF seminars and met Kempie face to face. Kempie learned the Martin shuffle in Hyde park and I tried desperately to teach him a muscle up. Kempie and Little Redhead (Julie) later traveled over and stayed in our home training for and traveling to the '08 CrossFit Games with our family and the Brand X crew.

Lot's of history folks. Much can be lost by disrespect.

Re: Painstorm - May '09

Well I've just finished doing the painstorm with Kempie and a couple of our clients. I managed to get 25 rounds + 7 deads, sat the last 40s out because I was hanging out. Staying up late for the Paquaio fight couldn't have helped.

30 minutes was a lonnnng time
