Fight Gone Bad This Saturday, September 25


Lydia recovering for her next pull on the rower

This Saturday, beginning at 8am, we’ll be running everyone through Fight Gone Bad.  Besides being a great workout, it’s an opportunity to raise funds for some worthy causes, namely LiveStrong and the Wounded Warrior Project.

To that end, we’re asking that everyone who comes to participate in the workout to pay a $20 drop-in fee.  All of the money paid will go directly to FGB5 on behalf of CrossFit Oakland.  If you’re already raising funds on your own, then don’t worry about the drop-in fee; we just thought this would be an easier option for many of you.

And in case you’ve never done Fight Gone Bad, this is the workout:

3 Rounds for Max Reps or Calories:

1 Minute Wall Ball @ 20#/14#, 10 ft target (Reps)
1 Minute Sumo deadlift high-pull @ 75#/55# (Reps)
1 Minute Box jump @ 20" (Reps)
1 Minute Push-press @ 75#/55# (Reps)
1 Minute Row (Calories)

There is a 1-minute break in between rounds.  Scored by sum of reps and calories.

    My dojo, Suigetsukan, is home to a women’s self-defense course called Girl Army. The next series of classes starts October 10th. Check it out if you’re interested:

    To answer the question about when we’ll start running heats, it will be around 8:15am or so.  We’ll try to stick to the 8am, 9am, and 10am schedule (the usual weekend schedule) in the beginning, and then stick around as long as we need to afterward to get everyone through.

    Steve, that pornstache was quite the find. I am impressed both the subject of the picture and your detective skills.

    Been wanting to learn to throw knives at Bob and beat him senseless with a baseball bat.  Sorry Bob, but your passive attitude just plain makes me angry.  

    Seriously, great idea.  And Lydia, I agree with everyone.  Stank hotness indeed.

    two things:

    1. Lydia, way to rock that headband

    2. is the old man doing FG5?  If so, I’ll sponsor him.  If not, $25 to the cause from bb.

    Also, Fight Gone Bad fundraiser is super-fun.  If you’re on the fence, come by – you will not regret it.  The energy is unbelievable and Mike goes total ape-sh*t screaming "ROTATE-ROTATE-ROTATE!!" until his voice is little more than a croak.

    Seriously hot gams, Lydia! And yes. I’m interested in the weird Sayoc for women thing.

    1) Ladies I don’t want to get my ass kicked walking into to CFO with my black hoodie on at 5:50am. Just use the Jedi force to identify before unleashing your furry.

    2) Longest leg record has now been shattered!

    3) Mike yelling at you during FGB is worth the price of admission.

    Hi, all. Just got back from a trip. I’d be happy to run a class for awesome ladies of CFO. I’ll talk with you all about it a little more and see what you’d like to get out of it. There is a lot of information to cover on this subject.
