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?!
The registration deadline is Monday, September 10. Learn more here, and register here.
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.)

Hot and sweaty 6am class:
HBBS – 215x7x2 (just over 70%)
FSQ – 180x7x2 (just over 70%)
All moved fairly well. Could have used a little more rest before the last set of FSQ
Made it through 4 rounds plus the single on the press
Press – 45×5, 95×5, 115×3, 135×3, 155×1
Farmer's carry – 32kg KB unbroken, jerry cans unbroken, jerry cans +2.5 unbroken, jerry cans +5 broke it up about 2/3 of the way through
6am with Ro and McDowell
HBBSQ at 210# (74%). These all moved well and felt moderately heavy.
FSQ at 180# (77%). Feeling light and fast. I really need to retest my 1RM.
Worked up to 140# on the press. Only 5# off my PR from last cycle. Probably could have hit 145# if I wanted to stick around but we were already crashing the 7am party.
Jerry Cans for the first two walks then JC + 2.5# and then JC + 5#. Took a 15 sec rest at the half way point each time to rest my hands.
7 AM. So happy to do NFT anything, especially with the gym such a sweatbox!
HBBSQ 165x8x3. Can't wait to go to 5s.
NFT work: 4 rounds plus the single press before I had to run. Got to 75 for a single on the football bar and did all but 1 round with 24 kg KBs for the farmer's carry. I'm pleasantly surprised that I can do that — I couldn't the last time I tried.
laterpost from 5:30 last night
All felt good and went up pretty smoothly
Legs were tired but they went in pretty easily as well.
There were only 2 of us in class so we got some good focus from Jeremy.
Press: 95×5, 115×5, 135×3, 140×3 150×1
Farmer's Carry: 2pood for 2 rounds, Jerry can's 2 rounds
Row: Kept around 20 spm between 2:05 – 2:10 split

6am with Ro and McDowell
Squat: 255. Moved fine.
FSQ at 195. Feeling light and fast.
Worked up to 150 on the press. PR of 2.5 lbs and it moved pretty quick. Very happy with this.
Took the farmers carry easy as my elbow has been flaring up the last few weeks. 2 rounds with 32kg bells, then 2 rounds with 20kg bells. Rows mostly around 2:05.
270 is 70%. Moved well.
Just under 70%. Next week will use 205.
Press 45×5, 95×5, 135×3, 155×3, 180F
Planned to get to 175 but 155 felt so good I figured I'd see if I still had a BW press. Today, I didn't.
Carries all 72# KB
Rows were easy
lady fox says
10am group class with Jeremy.
(45×5, 115×5, 165×3) 185x7x2
-felt ok and like I probably could have done 10reps if needed.
-also moved fine. Will make 10# jump again next exposure.
Presses: 45×5, 65×5, 75×3, 85×3, 95×1
Farmers carry: 28kg, 24kg, 24kg, 28kg, Jerry cans (split the last 100m with Chris A)
Rows were mostly around 2:20. Recovery.
FARM EGGS for sale tonight, 6-8:30!
Six bucks, cash only, small bills appreciated 🙂 The season winds up soon, so get yer eggs today!
Went to group class and Ag last night so I wasn't sure how smooth today was going to be, but it went well. Tomorrow is definitely going to be a much needed rest day.
FS 3×8 105 moved pretty quickly.
WOD – I made it through 4 rounds and the single push press. Did the single at 70lbs. Did half the farmer carries at 40lb and the other half at 35lb. My left hand is pretty ripped up from Sunday ag's T2B and I just couldn't grip the DB.
dave p says
– first workout – warmup then db press, 95x3x4. I tweaked my back deadlifting last week so am going back to… either not deadlifting, or doing lower weight snatch-grip DLs.
– second workout – 3×1 mile repeats on the treadmill w/3min rest, 2 degree incline. I feel like I will always be slow 🙁
Today, fun 6:30 class. Sunday I didn't hit depth on a few reps so was really careful about hitting depth today. HBBS 245x7x2, FS 210x7x2. Heavy but fine, no depth problems. NFT, did jerry cans 1x, 32kg 2x, then 28kg 2x. Grip was rough, and my OH press is already getting weaker since I stopped practicing it —> mean reversion —> gloom
Allie B says
Front squats: 8×3 @ 100. Super hard, but I blame the 8:30 workout.
Press: 45×5, 55×5, 60×3, 62.5 x 3, 65×1. Pretty happy!
This was not my favorite workout. My hands were destroyed from pull-ups and AG classes, def didn't help those carries.
Doing well with not drinking– trying to go all of September!
