WOD Monday Jan 16, 2012


15 deadlifts (225/155)
20 box jumps (24/20)
25 pullups

5 rounds

40 minute time limit

This is a Hero WOD. Hero WODs are named in honor of military and law enforcement members who have died in the line of duty. Accordingly, these WODs are longer and more challenging than most WODs. Completing a Hero WOD calls for a bit of sacrifice, as a tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

There’s nothing dishonorable about scaling WODs like this. Rest assured that even the fittest and strongest among us are going to be wrecked by Roy. Just do the math: 75 heavy deadlifts and 125 pullups — that’s no joke.

Consider scaling the weight, the reps, the rounds, or all of the above. Don’t disable yourself on the first WOD of the week. Do your best, but as always, be aware of your limitations.
