It’s time to start getting ready for Fight Gone Bad V, the annual fundraiser done by crossfitters around the world. This year it will be held on Saturday, September 25, 2010. (Save the date, mark your calendars now.)
Last year the Black Box took honors as highest fundraiser in the 25-participants-or-fewer category for the Northeast of the USA. The reason we had so few participants was because it was our first year being involved in the fundraiser and we registered only 2 weeks before the event happened.
This year we’re going to sign up right away (June 1st is when sign-ups open) and we’re going to use the whole summer to get ready to participate.
How much money you raise isn’t dependent on how well you do in the workout, but there’s nothing like using an event such as this to focus your training to get better at crossfit, especially the explosive-hip movements that encompass FGB.
So I hope to see lots of you at the Box today!
“Fight Gone Bad!“
Three rounds of:
Wall-ball, 20 pound ball, 10 ft target (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump, 20″ box (Reps)
Push-press, 75 pounds (Reps)
In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
Add your points and post them to comments.
Compare to 100117.
