Help me suffer for charity! September 9, 2009

I’m raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project and Athletes For A Cure (Prostate Cancer Research) by participating in something called Fight Gone Bad.

The short version is this:

  1. You donate
  2. I go and REALLY REALLY bust my butt
  3. I vomit (optional)
  4. We help out some deserving people and (for those of us with prostates) maybe even ourselves.

“But Josh, how do I do this?” You ask. Good question! Just go to my easy-to-remember donation page: In 30 seconds you can enter the amount you’d like to donate and a credit card number. Very easy!

** Update:

Some people were curious about what the workout itself is.

Straight from the Crossfit FAQ:

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 workout is a total of 3 rounds.

The stations are: 1. Wall-ball: 20 pound ball, 10 ft target. (Reps) 2. Sumo deadlift high-pull: 75 pounds (Reps) 3. Box Jump: 20” box (Reps) 4. Push-press: 75 pounds (Reps) 5. Row: calories (Calories) The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of “rotate,” the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
