Workout of the Day
21 Burpee Box Jumps (20" Rxd)
21 Firemans Carry Back Squat (partner of equal weight)
21 Burpee Box Jumps
Partner #2 executes
Partner #1 again
Partner #2 again
The 21 reps signify a 21 gun salute, the 5 exercises are one for each Branch of the Military. Executing with a Partner signifies the bonds we aim to create between our Nation's Warriors and the communities they grow in and return to, and doing it twice reflects the fact that we honor both the living and the deceased.
Our goals for the WOD and the weekend:
1. Help people remember and observe Memorial Day in a respectful, reflecting, meaningful way.
2. Create a window of opportunity to improve communication between Communities and their Veterans to foster understanding. Ideally, this means finding a Team Red, White, and Blue chapter in your community, and seeking Veterans out to come WOD with you this Memorial Day Weekend.
3. Use this shared experience to build bonds that are restorative to Veterans and their communities.
Make this Memorial Day a meaningful and memorable one by living up to the charge of the day: dedicate a piece of it to those who fought and gave all on our behalf!
Come in during normal class hours and do something like:
Make up a missed WoD
Retest a WoD you've done before
Do a Benchmark WoD ("girl", "hero", or "max lift/effort")
Do a WoD I put on the board
Work on skills, techniques, strengths, weaknesses, or simply work on body maintenance.
