Army Spc. Hilda Clayton
WOD – “Hildy”
75 thrusters, 45-lb. barbell
75 wall-ball shots, 20-lb. ball
If you’ve got a 20-lb. vest, wear it.
Army Spc. Hilda Clayton, 22, of Augusta, Georgia, died from injuries sustained when a mortar malfunctioned during an Afghan National Army training exercise in Qaraghahi, Afghanistan. Clayton, assigned to the 55th Signal Company and the 21st Signal Brigade in Fort Meade, Maryland, was providing Combat Camera support at the time of her death.
Go for Hilda in this HERO WOD. After having survived the 100s, everyone of us knows how long that 100 calorie should take. As you move through this effort focus on giving it your all for this soldier. Thrusters can be done quickly and short sets – move swiftly and get off that bar! Pull-ups should be scaled to an appropriate progression, and the wall balls approached aggressively. Final row will be at a slower pace but finish out strong.
A full on shoulder assault. If shoulders are bothering Assault Bike, Med Ball Cleans, Ring Rows, and weighted box jumps would be a nice substitute for each movement. A vest if you have one still viable, or use dumbbells on the box jumps (14″ weighted 20″ unweighted)
