Fallen Heroes

  Blog, Community Blog   1   

One of the first questions that comes up with a new group of Foundation’ers will almost always have something to do with the leaderboard, and usually results in an explanation about what the Benchmark WODs are and why they have the names they do. One thing that we miss out on as a group by not frequenting mainsite is being able to attach faces and stories to the Hero WODs (see section 4.2). Mike came across “Fallen but Never Forgotten” in the Journal a couple weeks ago which tells the story of Murph, JT, and Michael. Read it, it’s good. Tomorrow (as Rememberance Day falls on a rest day this year) we’re going to do:


For time:
10 Handstand Push-ups
15 Deadlifts (250#/175#)
25 Box Jumps (30″/24″)
50 Pull-ups
100 Wallball (20#/14#)
200 Double Unders
400m Run (45#/35#)
