Today we do a much-loved and much-feared classic CrossFit workout - Fight Gone Bad. Coach Glassman made this workout to help train UFC champion BJ Penn. When BJ Penn was laying on the floor, looking up at the sky wondering what the hell just happened to him, Coach Glassman asked him if the workout felt like anything like a fight. Penn replied, "It's like a fight gone bad" and a notorious and legendary CrossFit workout was born.
Today's Technique Tuesday video is with Coach Glassman. He explains the origin of the workout, the specific stimulus and metabolic pathways it trains, and the inevitable technique breakdown that occurs for nearly everyone as the fatigue sets in. The better condition you are in, the longer you can delay technique breakdown. The more you practice correct technique, the more efficient you will be, and the longer you will be able to endure. Good luck!
