The rep scheme for this Hero WOD was created to represent the following:

– 4 rounds represent the four man reconnaissance team

– 3 Barbell Complex represents the 3 Navy SEALs killed from the team (Murphy, Deitz, Axelson)

– 8 Barbell Burpees represents the 8 Navy SEALs killed in the helicopter crash (Jacques Fontan, Daniel Healy, Erik Kristensen, Jeffery Lucas, Michael McGreevy Jr., James Suh, Jeffrey Taylor, Shane Patton)

– 8 Thrusters represents the 8 160th Army SOAR members killed in the helicopter crash (Shamus Goare, Corey Goodnature, Kip Jacoby, Marcus Muralles, James Ponder III, Stephen Reich, Michael Russell, Chris Scherkenbach)

As with all WOD’s there will be many scaling options available for those that don’t think they can do the WOD as prescribed. Please do not let the WOD intimidate you. I can custom tailor the workout for each individual. The most important thing is that you come out and show your support by sacrificing some of your time and a little sweat. It is the least we can do after knowing what these brave men went through in the defense of our freedom. This event is free and open to all. This event will be held rain or shine so dress appropriately and be prepared for the weather.
