0800h WOD w/Luca
(Painstorms started as workouts between Scotland, the U.K. and the US. Originally it was Davie (CrossFit Central Scotland), Karl (CrossFit Manchester) and Jeff (Brand X Martial Arts) egging each other on do do some crazy workouts, and inviting anyone else in the world to join in on the “fun”. This one is from Gordon Limb, who got caught up in this madness when he was stationed in the U.K. -jj)

This was tough, both physically and mentally but we all took it head on. Cody the newbie of the day joined in as well! I didn’t take don’t the scores, my bad, but we all completed at least all of the 15th round, some even more,with some weights modification along the way. Great work everybody, Jon, Sarah, Josh, Rick, Josh, Cody.
1900h WOD w/ Brian
Great class last night! I wanted to continue the ‘specialized’ training we’ve been doing around the Shed to prepare for the upcoming Fight Gone Bad Fundraiser around the world on September 29th. The workout was yet another variation on that famous routine and pretty hard for a new trainee. We had four people with limited CrossFit experience but they joined in and did a great job.
Prison Fight Gone Bad
A lot of prisons have been eliminating weightlifting for inmates. So a lot of the prisoners that like to workout a lot have switched over to grueling calisthenic exercises. Two of the most popular movements are burpees or bodyweight squats (what CrossFitters call air squats or simply squats.) We performed the standard exercises from FGB just once through for a count of 25 but we had to do 25 squats before each movement. It looks like this;
row 25 calories on the Concept II
25 box jumps
25 wall ball shots
25 push presses with 75# for men, 45# for women
25 sumo dead-lift high pulls with 75# for men, 45# for women
Just once through for time.
Attending were Matt, Anne, Yan, Tony, Jen, Deanna, Rachelle, and Oleg. Oleg did a great job on the Newbie WOD and then did the above workout for 10s.
