Thanks to all the Veterans for all you have done.
A divide exists between military veterans and the civilian community. With the fighting force consisting of only 1% of the country’s population, that divide is growing. This fact is damaging to Veterans as they attempt to reconcile their lives as they exit the military, and face a population that does not understand their experience. Team RWB, and WOD for Warriors, aims to bridge that divide.
Conduct WOD for Warriors on Veterans day to further connect the Crossfit community with veterans. In addition, show support for their service and sacrifice by honoring them on this day (11.11.11), set aside by Congress, for that specific purpose.
We want to provide a tough, team oriented, meaningful WOD that the Crossfit community can really sink their teeth into and be challenged by. Team RWB’s model of advocacy is all about partnering Soldiers and Civilians, and growing these bonds by fostering meaningful friendships. By executing a Team WOD, we emphasize this source of strength; community.
11 Reps each
to be executed in 2 person teams
2- Tuck Jumps
3- HSPU – buddy holds feet
4- Ring dips
6- Air Squats
7- Deadlift (135/95)
8- Pull-ups (any type)
9- Press (45/25 plates)
10- Jumping Lunges
11- 11 meter fireman’s carry
A two person team will have one member working at all times. #1 begins with burpees, once complete, #2 executes tuck jump, once complete, #1 executes HSPU while #2 holds feet, then #2 executes Ring Dips, and so forth. Since there an odd number of exercises, the second time through, #2 will start burpees, #1 will do tuck jumps, etc. The idea is a quick and even work-rest cycle, high intensity, giving it our all to honor our Veterans, and improving our ability to move more further faster!
