Less Than 4 Weeks ’til FGB6!

Fight Gone Bad 6 is less than 4 weeks away.  We’ve got a good team assembled thus far, but there’s always room for more.  If you’d like to support the cause, and participate in the workout on Saturday, September 17th please register here.

Now’s the time to make a big fundraising push, and it couldn’t be easier.  If you can send an e-mail to 20 friends, family members, and coworkers explaining what this event means to you, and politely askingh for a donation of $5 to $10, that could quickly result in $100 to $200 raised (please remember to send a follow up thank you note).  If you’re not sure how to begin crafting your message, please let me know.  Just as I want to do whatever I can to help you maximize your score on the workout, I also want to assist you in reaching your fundraising goals.

  1. Split Jerk: 65kg (PR)

    WOD: 10:49 Rx (@40lbs)

    Thrusters started to really suck after the 7th round of them. Great WOD.

  2. split jerk: 33kg, not a PR on account of my back being SO sore from deadlifts on saturday

    WOD: 10:18 Rx (@25#). My 100m got SO slow toward the end, i think i was barely moving.

  3. Push jerk – 30kg PR

    WOD: 10:24 with 20# dumbbells (I think about 18% of my bodyweight). Was tempted to try 25# but decided against it. Maybe next time…
