A 21 Gun Salute is the Nation’s highest display of honor, appropriately reserved for our Fallen troops on Memorial Day. Our WOD intends to replicate this, to honor our Nation’s Warriors, past, present, and future. The 21 minute workout and 21 repetitions signify a 21-gun salute, and the 5 exercises are one for each Branch of the Military.
21 minute AMRAP (As many rounds as possible)
400 meter run*
21 box jumps (24″/20″)
*500 meter row can be substituted for the run
