Sumo Deadlift High-pull, 75/55 lbs. (Max Reps in 1 minute)
Box Jump, 20" box (Max Reps in 1 minute)                    Compare to July 2007

Row  (Max Calories in 1 minute)

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.  All points are tallied at the end of all 3 rounds for a total score.

Wow.  We saw absolutely stunning performances today with incredible returns!  We had multiple PR's on FGB scores, first-timers who had awesome scores, "gimps" who really pushed the envelope with themselves with their injuries, and still others who raised the bar for themselves and gutted it out for the "as prescribed" weight for the first time!  I am just really proud of all of every one of you and super excited for the results of hard work and pushing the intensity lately!

Isabelle has been rehabing her shoulders and was back at FGB as prescribed (with a 20lb. ball!)today.  Mike did the Arm Gone Bad version with his broken ribs, Buck is fighting back after back surgery.  Strong efforts you guys!  Nothing like CrossFit as rehab!

STRONG WORK, CREW!

FIGHT GONE BAD FUNDRAISER

Calling All TEAmS!!

“Dear CrossFit Affiliates:

We are counting down the days to FIGHT GONE BAD II...

As you know, Athletes for a Cure is the proud presenter of this event, happening September 29th, 2007.  We want to get as many affiliates on board as we possibly can to make this event bigger and better than ever.  Last year, we raised just under $110,000 for prostate cancer research.  This year, the goal is $250,000 and I know we can make this a reality with your support and enthusiasm!

First, make sure to register your center as a participating affiliate right away.  Upon registration, you will receive a package containing postcards with registration information for your clients, posters, and additional support materials.  These will be mailed August 1st, giving your center at least six weeks to train, fundraise, and get ready to RAISE THE ROOF!!! 

Ok, CrossFit Flagstaff…. we need to join in with the ranks of the rest of the CrossFit world and we need to put together some teams to raise money for this event. What do you say? Please put together your people and let me know who is interested. As soon as I get at least 3 teams, we will get CrossFit Flagstaff on the event registry.
