WORKOUT OF THE DAY

110307 Monday: "J.T."

By jerry28 comments
110307 Monday

“J.T.”
21-15-9 reps of:
Handstand push-ups
Ring dips
Push-ups

In honor of Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Jeff Taylor, 30, of Little Creek, VA who was killed in Afghanistan in 2005. Erin Taylor, Jeffrey’s wife, spoke of her husband as “honest, compassionate, and giving to a fault.” She said, “He knew his place was fighting side by side with his best friends to bring peace and avoid future attacks on American soil.  Jeff knew his calling.


This was the first Hero WOD ever posted on CF.com I remember it well, as I was following the mainsite wods 6 years ago. I remember the feeling of both overwhelming sadness and pride. I found it amazing that the workout website I had found was now honoring  fallen American Heroes. Unfortunately new Hero wods appear at cf.com weekly, but fortunately cf.com continues to give us an opportunity to pause and honor their service and sacrifice.

This wod COULD leave you frustrated, you might have to scale. First off remember it is a Hero wod, gut through the best you can. Second off if you get frustrated treat it as a Strength wod and chip away 1 rep at a time…realize that regardless of the outcome you’ll come out the other end a stronger human being.

    Truthfully, I think I got away with “.com” standards today (.com referring to the quality of movement you typically see on the crossfit main site).

    Happy birthday to my pal Sean
