Link back to the last time we did this on Feb 17 2012 http://www.crossfitnaptown.net/?p=2252   Fight Gone Bad is one of the CrossFit benchmark WODs. It was designed to simulate the time domain of a mixed martial arts bout of five minutes of work followed by one minute of rest. It has been used in 3 and 5 round versions. The workout first appeared on CrossFit.com on 1 December 2004, although a hint of the workout appeared as just a snapshot image on 7 October 2003. It was so named after BJ Penn, a professional mixed martial artist, remarked that it was like a “fight gone bad” when asked how it compared to a real fight.   ]]>

  1. Did the accidental “modification” of fight gone bad where we switched off each round instead of each doing all 3 rounds straight… But we’ll get it right next time!!
    193 final score
    Shout out to Jeff who is a crazy pace master- I’ve never seen someone with such consistent rhythm throughout each round!!

    Thanks to Steph for pushing me through the 2nd round — I think that was more mentally challenging than the 3rd round.
