This Saturdays WOD is for a good cause. Please sign up and join other CrossFitters from around the area at Lukes Locker. The WOD will start at 9:00 am. See below for more details.

The event will take place on Saturday September 26 at more than 300 CrossFit affiliates throughout the United States and Canada at 6 a.m. EST until 6 p.m. PST. Last year, 700 people participated, raising more than $700,000 for the two charities. This year they seek to break the $1 million mark.

To sign up or to support somebodys efforts, go to www.fgb4.org and click “Register or Donate.”

In this workout, participants move through five stations for one minute each. Upon completion of the “round” of exercises, they get a minute rest and go for two more rounds. Scoring is based on the number of repetitions the athletes can complete in each minute (rowing = one point per calorie burned). The workout was given its name by World Ultimate Fighting Champion BJ Penn, who remarked after finishing, “That was just like a fight gone bad.” The stations include:

– Wall-ball: 20-lb. ball, 10-ft. high target
– Sumo dead-lift high-pull: 75 lbs.
– Box Jump: 20-in. box
– Push-press: 75 lbs.
– Row: calories

    It's going to be at Lukes. Hells half acre is GSX's cool name for their box. Gsx has moved the workout to Lukes.
