Fight Gone Bad 5 is Only a Month Away

Fight Gone Bad 5 is a month away.  On Saturday, September 25th we’ll be running our heats, along with affiliates all over the world.  It’s a CrossFit community event, fundraising for the Wounded Warrior Project, LIVESTRONG, and the CrossFit Foundation.  We’ve got a good group so far on the CrossFit Fenway team, anchored by top fundraiser worldwide, Justin Shaughnessy.

Have you registered yet?  If you haven’t, join our team, and get in the fight.  If you’ve registered, have you raised $150 yet?  Have you surpassed your initial goal?  Every dollar counts, and it never hurt to ask.  Aim high, both in your fundraising, and in the workout.

  1. 16:56 24kg Thrusters, Rings-purple band. Running was the hardest for me, especially after the thrusters.

    Really enjoyed seeing some of my old morning crew. Thanks Stacey for pushing me.

    91 burpees today!–ugh.

    @Haley- I’ll be glad when it is over..but I am amazed that we are doing it!!!! YAY

    1. You’re doing awesome!! Only 955 burpees left and then we’re DONE! it was so good to see you back in the morning!

      WOD- 18:10 45kg thrusters, red band on the dips, and waaaay too much time spent staring at the barbell. heavy thrusters suck.

  2. 17:56 with 30kg and purple band dips. Progress is dreading sprints a little less each time I do them.

    Nice to see yy this morning! 🙂

  3. Front squat: 60kg – but my wrists are killing me. Gotta work on wrist flexibility.
    WOD: 15:46 40kg, purple bands. Felt really strong today, even though I’m fighting a bit of a cold.

    Awesome job 7:30 crew.

  4. Front Squat: 90kg (fail after 100kg x 3)
    WOD: 4:01, 11:19, 17:06 (4:01, 6:18, 4:47)

    This just in: heavy thrusters are hard.

  5. Front Squat 90kg
    WOD 19:35 Rx.
    First time doing 60kg thrusters since I injured my shoulder doing them in mid-June. (I wasn’t strong enough then. Scaling is important!) I was mentally terrified, but I’m happy to say the shoulder feels great! Also this WOD completely gassed me.

  6. 110kg front squat
    15:45 wod with 65kg thrusters rx (the workout up to calls for 65kg thrusters, but on the board in class it wrote 60kg).

    rings and thrusters were unbroken, running was pathetic!

    1. Yeah, my bad, I mistyped on the blog. Oops, not checking the board before loading your bar may have made you stronger. Maybe this is something we should start encouraging. Good work Eric P.

  7. Front Squat: 90kg
    WOD: 18:09

    First WOD I’ve scaled down in a long time (scaled back to 50kg).

    Usually I just suck it up and drive on (even if it takes me awhile), but I couldn’t get 60kg locked out without going to singles and dropping the bar after the reps. Cleaning after every single rep was taking me too damn long. 50KG was much more manageable and I was able to string together 4 or 5 at a time.

    Tomorrow’s another day.
