What is the 31 Heroes Workout?
The WOD: “31Heroes”
AMRAP 31 minutes (As Many Reps As Possible)
– 8 Thrusters (155/105#)
– 6 Rope Climbs (15 ft. ascent)
– 11 Box Jumps (30/24″)
This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400m with a weight (45/25#). Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the weight and begin their 400m, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off.
Score is your total # of reps between both partners
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.
Why do the 31 Heroes WOD?
In August, CrossFit gyms around the nation and world will unite together hosting the fourth “31Heroes” WOD honoring the men killed in action on August 6, 2011. The funds raised will be distributed to grant recipients through The 31Heroes Project. ALL proceeds directly fund programs that support service members and their families, including the Navy SEAL community.
