Workout of the Day
“Fight Gone Bad”
Three rounds for reps of:
1 Minute of Wall-Balls (20 / 14)
1 Minute of Sumo Deadlift High-Pulls (75 / 55)
1 Minute of Box Jumps (20 / 20)
1 Minute of Push Press (75 / 55)
1 Minute of Rowing for Calories
1 Minute of Rest
In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
The origin of the story “Fight Gone Bad” is when world-renowned UFC fighter B.J. Penn went to CrossFit founder Greg Glassman looking for a workout that would mimic the trials of a bout in the Octagon, Glassman devised a devastating test: three five-minute rounds containing high- power compound exercises meant to work every muscle in the body and re-create the intensity of a real MMA fight.
As Penn was lying on the floor trying to catch his breath after the brutal workout, Glassman asked whether the new circuit felt anything like a fight. “It’s like a fight gone bad,” Penn replied, supplying the name for one of CrossFit’s most challenging—and notorious—workouts.
