Hey everyone-
Since there are so many variables to FGB, I thought I would post all the loads for mine. So right from my workout log, I present the following:


When we did it at Primal for the Athletes for a Cure benefit in September(I got 372 that time)we used the standards dictated on the site for that. So I did the same this time around:

"The CrossFit workout will be 'Fight Gone Bad'. In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. This event calls for 3 rounds. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of 'rotate,' the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point. The stations are:
Wall-ball, 8 ft target (Reps)
Deadlift high-pull (Reps)
Box jump (Reps)
Push-press (Reps)
Row (Calories)

Class B: Modified Men/Standard Women = 55 lb PP and High Pull, 14lb Wall Ball and 20in Box ***I used a 12lb Wall Ball (we don't have a 14lb one)***

My rounds went like this:

Round 1
SDHP- 35
Box Jump- 49
Push Press- 35
Row- 11
WallBall- 33
Total- 163

Round 2
SDHP- 31
Box Jump- 40
Push Press- 35
Row- 11
WallBall- 30
Total- 147

Round 3
SDHP- 30
Box Jump- 32
Push Press- 32
Row- 11
WallBall- 30
Total- 135

Total: 445

Can't believe the Games area almost here! So psyched!

I know it's a technicality, but FGB is actually 17 minutes. That additional minute would suck, unless it was an extra rest interval between the wallball and SDLHPs. :)

I was there to record all of Christy's reps and I just wanted to say that despite the lighter ball and shorter target, I'm very confident that she would have scored over 400. I know it's rash to make such an assumption, but working with her on a daily basis since January, I have no doubts about her capabilities.

And to echo everyone above me, Pat is a beast.

Great work Christy. That is an amazing FGB score. Just imagining that number of reps is making me a little sick.I can't even fathom the coordination it takes to get 49 box jumps in a minute. Way to go. Looking forward to meeting you at the games.
