Fight Gone Bad? or was it....?



There was a great turnout at CrossFit of Naperville for the charity event this weekend.  The Saints for Sara charity was set up for a Chicago Police Officer's 4-year old daughter with cancer.

The selected workout was called "Fight Gone Bad."  It's a 17-minute session (three 5-minute rounds, separated by 60-second rests).  Each of the following movements is performed for 60 seconds. The goal is to maximize the total number of:
  • 20# WallBalls (reps)
  • 75# Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (reps)
  • 24" Box Jumps (reps)
  • 75# Push Presses (reps)
  • Rowing (calories)
I chose to run my performance alongside an old high school friend Tom M.  We pushed each other in true CrossFitter fashion. There is something motivating about looking up at your "competition" as he rips out reps as you're slacking while grabbing a breather. Makes you want to get back into the fight.

The other photos are of Jim Q and Rhonda A.  They were both FGB first-timers. Great job!

Way to rock it Lou!

I guess you can say I fell into the category of "Fight Went Wrong". Glad to help Pukie represent.

Tom's a little mad at my lackluster performance with our camera... I told him most of the good pics were on yours, at least I hope! I would like to get those files from you sometime, somehow...
