Fight Gone Bad V

ACF is proud to be a host of the fifth annual Fight Gone Bad, which will take place on Saturday, September 25. FGB began as a fundraising event in 2006, and the first four editions raised a combined total of more than $2 million. FGB will benefit three charities this year: LIVESTRONG, Wounded Warrior Project and the CrossFit Foundation.

The event format is the Fight Gone Bad CrossFit format. In this workout, you move from each of five stations after one minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The event is in the 30-round format. The stations are:

Wall-ball: 20-pound ball, 10-foot target (reps)
Sumo Deadlift High-pull: 75-pounds (reps)
Box Jump: 20" box (reps)
Push-press: 75-pounds (reps)
Row: calories

The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of "rotate," the athlete must move to the next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is worth one point.

Individuals must raise $25 in order to participate; those who raise over $150 will receive an Official FGB 5 Event t-shirt after the event. Awards are given on Individual, National and Regional levels.

The first heat will begin at 8:00am, followed by heats every 45 minutes with the last beginning at 12:30pm. Space is limited to 20 athletes per heat; click here to sign up for a heat.
