Fighting Prostate Cancer Faster

On September 30th, Crossfit is holding the Fight Gone Bad Fundraiser for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Prostate cancer is extremely common among men, striking 1 in 6. Over 2 million men are currently afflicted. Athletes for a Cure wants to change that by contributing to ongoing research efforts to cure the disease.

I'll be participating in the Fundraiser, along with my friends from Crossfit Boston and Crossfit Metrowest.

Fight Gone Bad (FGB) is one of the most intense workouts in the Crossfit arsenal. It's three rounds of five exercises, with a one-minute rest between rounds. At each station, the Crossfitter has to pump out as many reps as possible.

Row (calories)
Wall Ball
Sumo Deadlift High-pull (75#)
Box Jump (20")
Push Press (75#)

There's no break between exercises. For those in the know, this workout makes puddles of the strongest athletes. For Athletes for a Cure, I'm promising a personal record.

My previous best is 269. Come September 30th, it'll be at least 280.

If you'd like to help by making a donation, my page is here. If you'd like to participate, join our team.

We won't cure prostate cancer this week or next, but we'll do everything in our power to aid the fight.

Go faster!
