Yesterday we did our Level 4 Fitness Level testing and described how the levels are analogous to belt colors in martial arts. Today we are testing your endurance with a real world martial arts test...of sorts.
The origin story of “Fight Gone Bad” is now a thing of CrossFit legend. When world-renowned 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: three five-minute rounds containing high-power compound exercises meant to work every muscle in the body and re-create the intensity of a real mixed martial arts battle. When Glassman asked Penn if he succeeded in creating a workout that mimicked the intensity of a fight, Penn replied, "Yes, it was like a Fight Gone Bad." Good Luck!
