Fight Gone Bad by yourself

Just curious how others who workout by themselves are managing the time aspect of Fight Gone Bad?

Are wall ball shots safe to do against a standard wall in the gym or do I run the risk of damaging the wall?

Hey Eric , checkout this link: http://www.speedbagforum.com/timer.htmlYOU MUST ENSURE YOU ANNOTATE ALL LINKS WHETHER WORK AND FAMILY SAFE.

if you have a laptop you can download this timer and bring it with you, it's free and it works great. You can also use it without an internet connection after you download it. There are instructions on the page on how to do that.

I have a Polar watch that beeps every minute.

I use the small interval timer by *******, http://www.*******.com/. (w/f/s) It is inexpensive and effective and has both audible beeps as well as vibration.

Re: Fight Gone Bad by yourself

Hey Joe, thanks for the possible solution. Unfortunately, I workout in local facility just by myself so bring my laptop would not be the best option.

Thanks anyway.

w/f/s means work family safe, or something similar. I believe I saw a post about that link not working because of someone spamming the boards with it.

Not sure why the board did that. The timer is called *********, one word if you search online for it. The w/f/s means the link is work/family safe. Hope that helps.

I have a watch that beeps every minute, too. It's not that loud, but it is amazing how keen your hearing gets when you're reaching for the end of a minute of SDHPs.

I use a Timex watch with the countdown timer set for 1 minute. Set it on repeat and you're good to go. The hardest part of FGB by yourself is remembering how many reps you did for each rotation, haha.
