HERO WOD (NO SKILLS CLASS AFTERWARDS)
If you aren’t familiar with Hero workouts, they are named after and designed to honor the lives of our fallen soldiers or first responders 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.
If you find that you are feeling sorry for yourself during the WOD, this is where you think about what they and their family have been through, and humbly do your best to finish it. Typically we will not put a time cap, to allow all to finish these Hero workouts if they desire.
Be smart when completing these if you are newer to crossfit and consider scaling the time down or the reps, but only if absolutely needed, given the magnitude of what the workout means.
