WOD Brief

Today we honor this man who died serving our Country. This workout includes 5 rounds of each of these movements. Like all HERO workouts these are long and tough. Work with your class to find the right adjustment wherever you need to have a great training day while honoring Mr. Weston.

We begin with a row – some may consider lowering this distance (for all movements) in half. Others may not be able to bike due to achilles or shouders – please take this opportunity to adjust your training to leverage the Bikes. Perhaps 1,500m on the BikeERG or 40 Cals on the AAB. Adjust based on your own capabilities!

The carry have a DB in each hand. The waiter walks are a DB in 1 hand locked out overhead (think biceps to ears for best position).

The weight of the DB at 45 is heavy given the distance. Ladies at 25-30lb would be ideal.
