CrossFit South Brooklyn is hosting its annual Fight Gone Bad fundraising workout on Saturday, October 19, 2013.
For the second year in a row, CFSBK has partnered with the Brooklyn Community Foundation to support creative and innovative local non-profits that are helping to make the most populated borough in New York a better place to plave. You can find out more about BCF at http://www.brooklyncommunityfoundation.com and see what we're up to daily at SBK at http://www.crossfitsouthbrooklyn.com
So what's the "fight" in Fight Gone Bad? No, the six of us on Snatch, Clean, and Twerk won't be battling other teams with boxing gloves and pugil sticks. Instead, we're fighting against the clock and against our bodies through three five-minute long sprints to comeplete as much work as possible.
Each of us will try to perform as many reps as possible over three rounds at the following stations:
wall ball shots are like shooting free throws, if the basketball were filled with sand and you had to squat down first before throwing it. Men throw a 20-pound ball to a 10-foot target, ladies throw a 14-pound ball to a 9-foot target
push presses require the athelte to use their arms, shoulders, hips, and legs to take a barbell from the shoulder to overhead. Men hoist a 75-pound bar, ladies a 55-pound bar
sumo deadlift high pulls are as cumbersome as their name sounds. From a wide stance, athletes pull a barbell (75/55 pounds) from the ground to their collar bones, keeping their elbows above the bar at all times. They tax the legs, hips, and shoulders.
box jumps, conversely, are just that simple. But no less tortuous. Both the men and women use a 20-inch box.
rowing on an indoor rower might be hell on earth. So that's why we'll be trying to burn the most calories on them in an all out 60-second sprint.
All of us on Snatch, Clean, and Twerk are proud to represent CFSBK and BCF in what will be a day of fun and sweat. Thanks for your support!
