What is a Hero WOD?

What is a Hero WOD?

Category : Weekly Blog

As we get closer to Memorial Day we thought it best to help explain what the meaning of a Hero WOD is and why Crossfit has them.  Crossfit names these very intense workouts after fallen heros, soldiers, firefighters, and law enforcement officers that have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.  These are not considered quick or relatively easy WODS.  They are hard and brutal for a reason, they cause discomfort.  We do these WODS to remind ourselves that no matter how much we suffer during the workout it is nothing compared to what these warriors go through. When we are finished we can high-five our fellow athletes and get back to our wonderful lives with our friends & families.  We have so much to be thankful for!

Murph was named after Lt Michael Murphy.  This was one of his favorite workouts which he called “Body Armor”.  Crossfit named it Murph to honor him and just about every Memorial Day crosfitters all over will be performing this WOD.  We got this, JabCrossfit athletes!  We’ve been prepping for this workout!  See you Monday, May 30th at 10:45 am and don’t forget to bring something for the potluck to follow, if you can stay!  You’ll see everyone starting to sign up on the whiteboard.  Looks like so far there is beer, bacon, tacos and donuts!  Sounds good to me!

Keep moving!
