"Fight Gone Bad"

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.  This is a five minute round from which a one minute break is allowed before repeating.  The stations are:

Wall ball, 20# (15#)

Sumo deadlift high pull, 75# (55#)

Box jumps, 20"

Push press, 75# (55#)

Row (calories)

The clock does not stop or reset between exercises.  On the call of "rotate", the athletes immediately move to the next station for a good score.  One point is given for each rep, except on the rower, where a point is given for each calorie.

Post total reps to comments.

Thank you for making the CrossFit community what it is this weekend.  It was such a blast seeing so many of you outside of our Verve home, some people even in real clothes, and we loved how you all took the time to come watch the competition, volunteer or judge, or even just send good mojo from afar.  The all around camraderie and love for each other means more than words can say, and for that–THANK YOU!  

Team CrossFit Verve finished the weekend in 5th place in the Southwest Region.  Their strong efforts were just not enough to go to California this time around–but we wish the top 3 teams the best of luck as they go represent our very competitive region.  We couldn't be more proud of the team, as they worked to total exhaustion time after time.  

Beth had a stellar weekend, and finished in 7th place overall in the Southwest Region.  She not only finished WOD #1 faster than anyone else in the world, but had huge PR's on the Deadlift/Box Jump WOD and "Amanda."  We are so happy that she's found her home at Verve this year and will soon add a spouse!

Our friend Cherie.  She last competed in the CrossFit Games in 2008.  Over the past several years, tremendous battles have kept her from the road to the Games, but she kept cheering on and training Matt for his great moments.  All the while, she carried on quietly biding her time regaining her strength and sharpening her mental fortitude.  Well, this weekend was a time for her to shine and the Games to see the consistent strength and discipline that we all know her for, along with her goofiness and love of FUN.  Cherie's performances were nothing short of inspiring, her dancing before WOD's quirky, and her moments bright and contagious to everyone around.  She finished the weekend in 2nd place overall, earning a well-deserved spot to the Home Depot Center and the big show!  We know that she will carry that strength to California and share it on an even bigger stage.  Watch out world–there's a new Chan to watch out for! 

Obviously, with a husband and wife dynamic duo en route to the CrossFit Games, there's lots to be said.  With that, we are taking nominations for new slogans for shirts……so post and vote to comments.  Oh yeah, this is gonna be fun.
