“31 Heroes”
On August 6, 2011, a tragedy shook the military community and Americans everywhere. In a single instance, America lost 30 military service members, many of whom were members of the Navy SEAL community—and one military K9—when an Extortion 17 helicopter was downed in Afghanistan.
The 31Heroes WOD (workout of the day) was specifically designed to remember the fallen heroes of August 6, 2011 and honor their legacy of sacrifice.

With a Partner
31 Minute AMRAP:

8 Thrusters, 155#/105#
6 Rope Climb
11 Box Jumps, 30”/24”

– Partners alternate 400m sandbag run (45/25 lb)

Workout Tip

Partner 1 performs the workout listed above. Partner 2 runs 400 meters with a sandbag (45/25). When Partner 2 returns from the run, Partner 1 will grab the sandbag, and begin their 400-meter run, while Partner 2 continues the workout where Partner 1 left off. Mark a round completed following the 11 box jumps. This is an AMRAP workout so the score is total rounds and reps at the end of 31 minutes.
