Fight Gone Bad… It’s SO Good
It’s the only time I ever entered an athletic competition and placed. I won the intermediate division! It was a big day. BIG. DAY.
And it was wicked fun because I didn’t have any expectations about how I was going to do before I started. I’d never done Fight Gone Bad before that day. The goal I published right here in this blog was to “do as many reps as I can without quitting or barfing.” The morning of FGB, I tied my hair in two ponytails, put on some pink, and stepped up to my station to start throwing weights around with a smile on my face.
This year, I’ll be wearing my big girl pants ’cause I’ve committed to the Elite division, and I’m taking on Fight Gone Bad the way it’s written:
Fight Gone Bad
3 rounds, 1 minute per station:
- wall ball, 14-lb. ball
- sumo deadlift high pull, 55 lbs.
- box jumps (all jumping, baby!)
- push press, 55 lbs.
My goal is 300, but if I were you, I’m not sure I’d take the bet 😉 I’d have to have, like, the best day of my life to hit 300. But I’m gonna try. And I’m gonna do it in ponytails and a smile.
Please support me in Fight Gone Bad with a donation. Any size will do! It’s just nice to know I’ve got support when the lifting gets hard – and it’s a fundraiser for two truly excellent causes:
- Athletes for a Cure, which works for find a cure for prostate cancer
- Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that helps severely injured service members
