WOD Brief:

Today we honor our Veteran’s…the heroes and sheroes that defend our freedom day in and day out. To do so, we are going to do the hero wod “white” as a team. This workout is not for the faint of heart and will require focus, extreme core stability and of course a bit of grit. Rope climbs, to toes to bar to overhead walking lunges means that our grip will get fatigued, so it is import to brace the core appropriately and use active shoulders when aggressively pushing that plate overhead on the lunges. Take some time before wod-ding to warm up and review each movement…thus getting a feel for the fatigue that will creep up on you. Pace yourself, push yourself, and scale yourself as needed.

U.S. Army First Lieutenant Ashley White, 24, of Alliance, OH, assigned to the 230th Brigade Support Battalion, 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team, North Carolina National Guard, based in Goldsboro, NC, died on October 22, 2011 in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, from wounds suffered when insurgents attacked her unit with an improvised explosive device.

She is survived by her husband Captain Jason Stumpf, her parents Robert and Deborah, brother Josh, and sister Brittney.

“White” was the first CrossFit female Hero WOD, first posted on crossfit.com as the workout of the day for Tuesday November 8, 2011 (111108).
