WOD for Warriors - Veterans Day 2016

Goals

- Celebrate the service of all U.S. military veterans in a meaningful way.

- Provide veterans and communities an opportunity to connect through functional fitness.

- Raise awareness and funds to help us deliver our programs.

What

WOD for Warriors is a workout held on Veterans Day at gyms and boxes across the country. All proceeds from this event go directly to supporting Team Red, White and Blue, whose mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their communities through physical and social activity.

Why

Veterans Day has been observed since 1954 by the U.S. and its origins date back to Armistice Day 1918, which marked the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front in WWI. Veterans Day preserves the historical significance of the 11/11/1918, but also focuses attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. WOD for Warriors is held yearly on the 11th month, 11th day and 11th hour to celebrate the service of all U.S. military Veterans in a meaningful way within their own communities.

The WOD

“Armistice”

  • [11X] Burpees
  • [19X] Deadlifts @ 95LB / 135LB
  • [18X] KB Goblet Squats @ 16kg / 24kg

Scale as needed

The significance of the repetitions in this workout can be seen in the layout where the 11min AMRAP, 11 inverted rows and 11 burpees represent the 11th month, 11th day and 11th hour while the 19 deadlifts and 18 goblet squats represent the year 1918, Armistice Day.

Top Gym

This year, gyms will be competing against each other for total repetitions completed. To be entered, each gym must post on their Crowdrise page, the entire gyms rep count across all workout variants for all participants by Nov 13th at 11:59pm. More participants=more reps...and veteran and military reps count double, so be sure to find the veterans in your community and invite them to join you! The winning gym and two runner-ups will receive a prize package from Rx Equipped. Every rep counts!
