Heidi completing box jumps during 31Heroes


And coming Saturday...

“31Heroes”
AMRAP in 31 minutes of:

8 Thrusters (155/105)
6 Rope Climbs (15')
11 Box Jumps (30"/24")
[See below for scaling options]
This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400m with a sandbag (50/25). 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 number of rounds/reps (25 per round). Ex: 8+8 Rx.

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.

SCALED OPTIONS

L2 Division
8 Thrusters (105/75#)
6 Rope Climbs (15ft/9ft)
11 Box Jumps (24/20)

400m Sandbag Carry (50/25)

L1 Division
8 Thrusters (75/55#)
6 Ring Rows
11 Box Jumps (20/16)

400m Medball Carry (20/14)

Additional Scaling Options
Scaling Rope Climbs: Rope Climb (9ft) 1:1, Rope Climb Pullups 2:1, Ring Rows 2:1.
Thruster weight can be scaled further in either division. Thruster weight scaled to 70% of our 1RM Thurster.
Box Jump height can be scaled in all divisions. 24”, 20”, 16”, 12”.
Box Jumps will be step downs only. No rebounding permitted.
