WOD for Warriors

As you know we are going to participate in the WOD for Warriors tomorrow morning.  This is a partner WOD and it will be important that you partner up with someone who is the same size. 

WE WILL START AT 0600 so get there at 0530 to warm up and go over the movements.

Bring your pullup bands!!

The WOD:

"21 Guns - A Memorial Salute"
Partner #1:

21 Pull-ups
21 Burpee Box Jumps (20" Rxd)
21 Firemans Carry Back Squat**
21 Burpee Box Jumps
21 Pull-Ups

Partner #2 executes
Partner #1 again
Partner #2 again
**our group will sub "piggy back squats" for Fireman Carry Squats

Here is the description of the workout:

The 21 reps signify a 21 gun salute, the 5 exercises are one for each Branch of the Military. Executing with a Partner signifies the bonds we aim to create between our Nation's Warriors and the communities they grow in and return to, and doing it twice reflects the fact that we honor both the living and the deceased. 

As we are still getting to know each other, we feel it important to share with you our goals for this event, with the hopes that you share these as well:
1.  Help people remember and observe Memorial Day in a respectful, reflecting, meaningful way.  
2.  Create a window of opportunity to improve communication between Communities and their Veterans to foster understanding. 
3.  Use this shared experience to build bonds that are restorative to Veterans and their communities.
