When world-renowned Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter B.J. Penn went to CrossFit founder Greg Glassman looking for a workout that would mimic the trials of a bout in the Octagon,  Glassman devised a devastating test that ultimately became known as "Fight Gone Bad".  Many of you have fought through Fight Gone Bad so we're thinking of putting UFC's Fight Night live bouts on the CFSBK big screen on Saturday afternoon March 8.  Are you interested in pulling up a mat and grabbing a beer to watch?  Email mare(at)CrossFitSouthBrooklyn so we can guage interest. This would be a free event that would start directly after the 1pm Group class.

Took a ballet class at Alvin Ailey yesterday. Trying to expand my physical horizons. I'm pretty terrible at it but I had a good time. Lets hope grand plies don't come up in the Open.

Well the blog ate my OG post so reposting here:

40x3 50x2 60xF,1 65x1 72xF,F,1 81xF,F,1 (PR) 82xF,F

I weighed in at 81kg at the meet, so... bodyweight snatch!

Clean and jerk
70x1 80x1 85x1 90x1 95x1 100xC,C,C

The first jerk at 100 was close, the second two barely left my shoulders. Good to know I own this 100kg clean now at least.

5 sec Snatch static holds (1" from floor)
90x2,2 100x2

Pause squats (unbelted, 3 count)

CFSBKers Beware:

It becomes incredibly difficult to open the door to exit gym after applying post-workout hand salve.

Got in today and did Thursday EMOTM C&Js.

Worked at 80kg (176#), which did not feel super heavy, but was enough of a challenge after some time off. Back felt pretty solid throughout, just felt rusty. Very happy to be olympic lifting again, thought it was going to be a while!

Then I rode my motorcycle...spring is around the corner, or it better be!

I know the blog is eating comments again. I contacted Square space again. Sorry everyone.

Did rich shrink? And is that an early arm bend I detect? Intentional?
