  1. The best part about the FGB Fundraiser, for me, is that I always seem to be able to push myself harder than I thought I could.  There’s a great vibe at this workout and people do some amazing things!

    One tip that I find helpful is that I use the row as a mini-recovery.  I get the least points (calories) from the row so it doesn’t help or hurt my score too much.  I also like to start with wall-ball because that is my weakest movement.  Wish I could join in on the fun! I’ll be there cheering everyone on though!

    Looking at the physics of each movement, the push press requires the least work while the SDHP requires the most…. Box jumps allow you to store spring energy in your Achilles tendon which is good.

    Crossfit has a several epic workouts. FGB is one of them, none of the exercises are particularly hard, everyone can press an empty bar, throw a med ball, row, jump on a box, and pick up a barbell. This WOD is your chance to do an epic workout, raise some money for several good causes, if you have not heard of the wounded warrior project, you should learn about it. You should also research why its called FGB, its interesting. This WOD allows you to push your limits, dance with the devil, go “all in” and learn something about yourself and the other CF folks around the world. Step up to the challenge, you will be sore afterwards but you will be glad you did. FGB during the year isnt the same as this particular time.
