“31 Heroes”

What better way to start a bachelor party than a 7:30am bro session at CFS? Yeah PAT P!

“31 Heroes”
AMRAP 31 minutes (As Many Reps As Possible)
8 Thrusters (155/105)
6 Rope Climbs (15 ft. ascent)
11 Box Jumps (30/24)

L2- (115/80) – 3 Rope Climbs – (24/20)
L1- (95/65) – 3 Pull to stands – (24/20)

This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400m with a sandbag (45/25). Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the sandbag and begin their 400m, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off.
Score is your total # of reps
This WOD was created specifically to honor the 30 men and one dog that gave their lives for our country on August 6, 2011. It is 31 minutes long—one minute in remembrance of each hero. The rep scheme is 8-6-11—the date of their ultimate sacrifice. Finally, this is a partner WOD. The men who gave their lives were from multiple branches of our military, working together as a team. In the workout you and your team member will constantly be taking the load from each other providing much needed support and relief. We realize that no physical sacrifice made during a workout can come close to the sacrifice our brave heroes made, but we consider this WOD a CrossFitters ‘moment of silence’. This is how we can honor those that gave all in the name of freedom.

    As a dog-lover, animal advocate and shelter volunteer, I’m honored to participate in a Hero WOD tomorrow that honors a fallen military dog in addition to these 30 brave and honorable men.
