SATURDAY 9AM HERO WOD
Each month we aim to complete one or two different Hero workouts, to honor the lives of our fallen soldiers and the sacrifices they and their families have made fighting for our country and defending our freedoms. These workouts are typically more skilled, have heavier weights, or have more volume than a typical workout. Plan accordingly. If you find that you are feeling sorry for yourself during the workout, refocus your mind and think about how it is nothing compared to what these soldiers and their families have been through. Let’s honor them.
We will be completing the workout “Whitten”.
***Please know that this particular one can run long on time. If needed, scale appropriately for your personal abilities while still challenging yourself. (3-4 rounds, 12 reps on each, or complete the whole thing.
