Background: This memorial workout is dedicated to George Floyd who died in police custody after being brutally arrested by four Minneapolis police officers on May 25, 2020. His killing sparked peaceful protests and riots in over 100 cities in the US.

George Floyd was known as a peace activist and a respected community leader.

This workout was designed by @peterabundant of Wakanda Fit LLC @wakandafitllc.

Background: This memorial workout is dedicated to Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African-American emergency room technician, who was killed on March 13, 2020, after being confronted by Louisville police who were executing a "no-knock" search warrant on her apartment.

At the time of her death, Breonna was working at the University of Louisville Health as an essential worker during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This workout was designed by Iron Roots Athlete @iron.roots.athelete as part of their initiative to continue fostering conversations on the progress of supporting people of color in the fitness community. It was one of the initial memorial WODs for their 'Walk With Us: A Program Series With a Purpose.'

According to the initial post by Iron Roots, 26 represents the age when Breonna was killed and the 6 burpees signifies the number of bullets that struck her.

Background: This workout is dedicated to Ahmaud Arbery who was killed on February 23, 2020, while unarmed and jogging along a road in Satilla Shores, Georgia.

The fact that the Arbery's killer(s), a white father and son, were not arrested until 74 days later, after a video of the incident went viral, sparked unrest about racial profiling and unfair treatment of African-Americans in America.

This workout was designed by Coach Mike Bernitt of Monroe County CrossFit @monroe_county_crossfit (Rochester, NY, USA) as a tribute to the young man and has been modified for the Say Their Names WOD.

The rep scheme signifies the date when Arbery was killed 2-23-20

Editor’s Note: We understand that without context the title of this workout can come across as tone deaf or hurtful. This is not the intent of the workout’s creator, Angelo Rogers, nor CFM. Please see Angelo’s post about his inspiration and intent behind the workout he designed in George Floyd’s memory – it inspired us to share:

From Angelo’s post: “I think the name “I Can’t Breathe” is an important reminder of the injustice that has sparked the need for change in all of us. The times we are experiencing humble us and remind us how much we can really push ourselves even when life seems to be crushing down on top of us. The message is not meant to offend anyone. The title is not meant to be a play on words. It’s meant to be a reminder of the injustice, to accept the challenge of change and adversity head on.”

He also posted the following in response to individuals on social media who said they were offended by the title of the workout:

“…you have that right to disagree. In my opinion there is no correlation between the pain of a man’s last moments and the strenuous capacity of the workout. Metaphorically speaking I can’t breathe indicates I can’t breathe I can’t catch my breath because of all the injustices that continue to happen. I can’t breathe because we keep seeing the same incidents occurring with the same end results. I can’t breathe because when is there going to be change. A metaphor carried out by millions of people, including strong, powerful African American leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Lebron James, Jamie Foxx, Nick Cannon, Kobe Bryant-RIP, etc. We are asking for a breath. We are crying for a breath. The message is largely a rally cry. It’s a reminder. Symbols can be painful. Hard to hear or look at but they are the cause for emotion inside you to motivate you to rise. It’s directed towards social change…”
