Each competitor will be assigned a judge from a different team to count reps and police the range of motion standards.  If you've got any special issues with a movement please be sure to communicate it to your judge before starting the event.  Judges are expected to hold their athlete to the standards listed above and count reps out loud during each movement.  If an athlete fails to hit any of the standards the judge will call "Foul".  Fouls are not debatable, focus on hitting the next rep with full range of motion.

Rest Day

Laurel and Cloyde get some Foam Roller love

At 5:30pm on Friday we're going to meet to set up the gym for Fight Gone Bad.  If you're available to lend a hand please let me know in the comments section.  We'll need to move some mats, set up the equipment and make sure things are ready to go for Saturday. I don't predict it taking longer than about an hour.

We also could use some other general volunteers for FGB on Saturday to help run scores and register all the athletes.  Please email David(at)
So far we've got Paul C, Brandy M and Malcolm S helping out. Who else is in???
