Lest We Forget
With Wednesday being Remembrance Day, it only seems appropriate that we take on a tough workout. It's a bit of a tradition in the CrossFit world to recognize the efforts of brave men and women both past and present that put themselves in the line of fire for our safety and freedoms.
Obviously our efforts tomorrow and Thursday are miniscule in comparison, but in our small struggle, we can recognize and honour those who serve to protect us.
Normally, we'd do a partner workout and sweat and toil in close quarters, but this year is different. We'll still take on a beast of a wod, but it will be staggered a bit as we will utilize the assault bikes.
Commit to a full effort throughout the whole workout. Try not to pace too easily early on, so that you truly have to dig to get through.
Good luck... and remember.
TRAINING WEDNESDAY THURSDAY
WARM UP: 3 rounds: 8 deadlifts, 6 hang power cleans, 4 front squats, 2 samson lunge
