The longest mile EVER!

Unfortunately, due to weather and road conditions, the gym will be closed this evening.

Fight Gone Bad!

Three rounds of:
Wall-ball, 20 pound ball, 10 ft target (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump, 20″ box (Reps)
Push-press, 75 pounds (Reps)
Row (Calories)

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.

Add your points and post them to comments.

    haha.. cool! too bad you didn’t have somebody taking a few shots while you were actually doing it though.

    so, a follow up from yesterday’s conversation… Gabrielle, Krista and I are in for the burpee challenge. (adding a burpee/day for 100 days)
    Anybody else? when shall we start? January 2011? lol

  2. Pierre

    Kevin – Did you see the video posted this morning on CF HQ? It is the Burpee mile…there is a guy that did it also from SPC Crossfit. 1h19m

    We were close.

  3. MC

    Sometime I wish that I studied for school teacher.

    Janine- I am up for the burpees challenge (before 2011 please lol). Last time I tried it, I lost count and stop, so with other people, I guess it is going to be easier to keep counting.

  4. 1mile of burpees??? And on your birthday??? That’s just not right.

    Kevin & Pierre – If you guys were on a track I bet your time would have been faster 😉 Maybe you can try it again on your 30th b-day. How many years away is that for you two? A lot, I know.

  5. Gabrielle

    I wish I was there to take on fight gone bad again… I’m getting up to go for a run while everyone is still asleep 🙂 have a good one guys!

  6. Julie

    Kevin / Pierre – Crazy, but great job on the Burpee Mile…

    Janine – count me in for the Burpee challenge.
    I attempted it last year as well…I think I got to day 40 and threw in the towel…the more the merrier.

  7. sweetness!
    so, how about starting on April’s fool day, no joke. We’ll end on July 8th, I think. And we can all do 68 burpees after the Moncton Subaru! yay!

    I’ll post the challenge on my website… to make sure we don’t lose count.

    so far there’s Julie, MC, Gabrielle and Krista… hmmm, Jeanette, I don’t take “I’m going to France” as an excuse. 🙂

  8. i might as well do the burpee challenge also …need to have one guy do it :o)

    your away Gabrielle …thought you were just scared of our compitition we had going :oP

    the video on the main site shows buddy walking abit …cheater :o)

  9. Kevin

    It’s a build up to a Century. 1 shot of beer on day 1, 2 shots on day 2, etc.

    It’s a little more expensive than the burpee challenge, but WAY more fun!

  10. Kevin

    Oh, speaking of Birthday’s! There’s a new thing!

    If it’s your birthday, and you come to the gym on your birthday, everyone else has to do your age in burpees. It’s our way of saying Happy Birthday to you!

  11. MC

    On your birthday, isn’t suppose to be a “good day”. So everyone except the birtday person should do the burpees, include the trainer! lol 🙂

  12. Tracy - CrossFit Fredericton

    Kevin, I think you may have actually found a way to get people to lie about being older than they really are 🙂 (That is, people that are already old enough to drink!)

  13. Janine – I’m not ready to make that commitment to Burpee just yet. I’m sure I would forget about him all the time and/or push him to the side the second a hotter, sexier WOD shows up. And that just wouldn’t be fair. I’ll save him the heartache.

    But good luck to ya girls and Sean (aka :-)… you’re a symbol now)

  14. Yay for Heidi.. boo for Jeanette! There won’t be any heartbreaking here. Burpee knows he’s not sexy. But he will take the honors of introducting you to the sexier WOD by giving you a great warmup prior to 😉

    emm.. I’m turning.. 13 this year 🙂

    Sean is the smiley sugardaddy

  15. MC

    Don’t worry Janine, Jeanette will still do a lot of burpees. We have a lot of birthdays in April, include her birthday! 🙂

  16. Andy

    100 day beer challenge as training en route to a real century (or more) after the games! To quote Homer “mmmm….beer” 8)

    I actually did 150 shots of beer in a row once in University (and house rules said no peeing allowed)…dont think I’d make it too far without bathroom priviledges these days…

  17. Krista

    i think that we’ll end up doing MORE burpees with Kevin’s new burpee plan than if we did our own for our birthdays – there’s something like 6 birthdays in april! and my birthday falls on a sunday so i don’t get to see everyone do them for me 🙁

    april 1st, i’m in janine. savour tomorrow ladies – and sean – it will be our last burpee free day for a while – and Kevin – you BETTER not post any in tomorrow’s WOD! or there might be mutiny ..

    on top of 68 burpees for the subaru duathlon, i’ll also get to do 64 on the day of the first 5 hour race of the year and NINETY-SIX the day of the wentworth endurance mountain bike race!! Oi!

    andy – WOW – 150 shots – impressive. i’d be happy to remember making it to 15 🙂

  18. Kevin

    Krista – I bet Andy couldn’t do 150 shots of my meatball sauce!

    So FGB will be tomorrow’s workout. I know you all wanted to do it, so it’ll be carried over.
