5 Rounds Not For Time, or 25 Minutes:
100m Farmer’s Carry, as heavy as possible

Work up to a heavy single on the press. Perform the carries as heavy as possible, almost to 3rd ave and back. Row the 300s easy at around 18s/m.

Brendan B. just wrapped his first ever Hood to Coast, a 200-mile relay race from Mt. Hood to the coast of Oregon. Each member of a 12-person team takes on three legs total and you run through the night. His goal was to hit splits of 7:25 (5.46 miles) / 7:35 (5.06 miles) / 8:10 (7.72 miles) for the race. He wound up hitting 6:56 / 6:55 / 7:16. The shot of him above is right before he ran his second leg through a dusty trail at around 11pm. He used his SBK bandana to keep the breathing paths clear as he ran through it. The other is from his third leg just 20-miles or so off the coast.
Brendan wrote: “There is no doubt working out with CFSBK helped me not only beat my time goals and PRs, but was walking fresh as a daisy and ready to run some more the day after. Couldn’t be happier with my results and am pumped for my next race.”

Have You Signed Up For Fight Gone Bad Yet?!
Since 2008, CrossFit South Brooklyn has conducted a yearly fundraiser in the form of a workout called Fight Gone Bad. Last year, we raised over $60,000 for the Brooklyn Community Foundation (BCF), a local organization dedicated to improving the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grantmaking, and community service. This year, we’ll be partnering with BCF again and hope to surpass last year’s donation numbers.
If you haven’t competed in this annual event yet, we promise it’s a good time–it’s actually most of our members favorite day of the year at the gym! Check out last year’s event and team photos to get a taste! (Bonus points if you find the photo of Coach Fox dressed like a cat.)
