We’ve got some new folks at the top of our list of fundraisers for Team CFNYC’s Fight Gone Bad 5, which happens this Saturday. Let’s give them props in the comments, everybody! (And don’t be afraid to click on one of their names and donate, if you’re a fan of this blog or just want to help!)

Here’s Bill, who’s going for 300 points. He loves mud, hates cancer, and has already raised $1450!

Matt U. is currently holding down 3rd place on Team CFNYC with $1435!

You might remember Steve from one of his many silly handstands but he’s taking FGB5 very seriously: he’s already raised $993!

  • Kate

    I definitely consider myself to be a buttercup, but I scaled to an older pup (by accident)! 3 rounds of 800m run, 30 back extensions and 30 sit ups in 33:32 and I only cried twice. (Three times if you count the one in the shower.)
    I WIN!

  • Steve S.

    Hang power snatch + hang snatch – 90×3; 95×3; 100×3
    Jerk – 135x3x5

  • Hari

    Crying in CrossFit is acceptable and respectable. If you’re working hard enough to cry, you’ve made a transition bigger than your first pull-up or muscle-up. Welcome!

  • Jenny A

    26:17, anchored feet for situps (not sure if that counts as Rx)

  • Hari

    Jenny A,
    Anchored is RX’d. When there is no specific type of sutup specified, you have the option.

  • Hari

    Note that the above does not constitute a general rule.
    “Clean” means “Squat Clean” (as opposed to “Power Clean” or “Hang Power Clean”) except when used in the term “Clean and Jerk,” which CrossFit basically translates to “Ground to Overhead by Any Means Necessary”
