Every day is different, and some days are better than others, but no matter how challenging the day, I get up and live it.-Muhammad Ali
Fight Gone Bad.
The first time this workout was performed, it was used to simulate an MMA match during the training of BJ Penn. He said the workout felt like a fight gone bad.
Now most of us aren't MMA athletes, so why should we do this workout?
First of all, it's fun. Obviously.
Second, this workout is a fantastic way to build and measure your conditioning.
Conditioning, or cardio-based workouts, are typically only thought of as running or rowing or biking. But we can use any exercise for conditioning.
This workout was written to test how well you can continuously move with good quality. The cool thing about this workout is that you change movements every minute.
What we look for in this workout:
1. How many reps can you do in a minute of a given exercise?
2. How many reps did you complete in total?
3. Were there any exercises you did really well on?
4. Were there any exercises you did really poorly on?
5. When in the 17 minute long workout did your form break down?
We can gain a lot of insight into the current state of your personal fitness in a single workout.
what time are you coming in today?
