WOD – August 9, 2019

Work Out of the Day


“31 Heroes”

In teams of 2, as many rounds as possible in 31 minutes of:

8 thrusters, 155/105lbs

6 rope climbs

11 box jumps, 30/24″

*400m run with sandbag, 45/25lb

One athlete runs with sandbag while the other works through movements.  When they get back they pick up where their teammate left off.


The 31Heroes WOD, the title event of The 31Heroes Project, was born out of the tragedy of August 6, 2011 when a Chinook helicopter was lost in Wardack province, Afghanistan. The Chinook helicopter was carrying 17 Navy SEALs, two Navy EOD Technicians, three Naval Special Warfare Combat Support Sailors, two Army Aviators, three Army Air crewmen, three Air Force Special Tactics Operators, and one Military Working Dog. These men made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and freedom. This workout is a way that we can offer some of our sweat and tears to honor their memories and continue to remind the families that we have not forgotten the service of their loved ones.
