Our Fight Gone Bad! Set-up

Last September's Fight Gone Bad! event pitted 6 teams of 5 athletes against each other and raised over $7,800 for Charity.  We used a "T" configuration for the event so that heats of two teams could go face to face during the workout.  This orientation encouraged intensity, comradery and higher scores. Each station (except the rower and box jumps) offered three different options for scaling so that everyone could participate regardless of capacity.  Formal competitions are a great way to really test your limits and participate in the sport of fitness

This blog is intended as a jump off point for athletes to systematically begin to address their nasty tissues and grody joint mobility. Every human being should be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves, learn how to fix your tight hips, painful knees, and stiff shoulders, and how to make yourself faster and more powerful. It's too much to mobilize everything, all the time, everyday. Start somewhere. The Mobility Wod should take you four to 10 minutes to complete. Do it everyday. Remember the areas that feel like a Shaman's Blow.
