Last Hero of the Month

Reminder – tomorrow is Change for Change. Bring in $5 to switch up your workout.

We started with a Canadian Hero. We will end with a Canadian Hero. Thank you all for honoring the fallen.

We’ve seen some tough workouts this month. We’ll see a few more in September, but expect it to be toned down a bit. We’ll be focussing on technique and lower intensity workouts in the coming month. I hope you enjoy.

“Ship”

9 rounds for time of:
7 Squat cleans (185/120# or heavy)
8 Burpee box jumps (36/24″)

*25 min cap

    I did this at Biometrics on the 10th @ 58# at 24:15. My goal this time around was to pace better and I did! That resulted in a 7# and 24 seconds PR!

    Chris served in Afghanistan the tour before Ship. I have a weak spot for Hero WODs.

    Great class Marie, great work 6 amer’s! 🙂 have a good long weekend!

    1. Valérie Arseneau

      doing the WOD at 185 is nuts enough that no one will pick on you for dropping to 30″ which is still high!

    Wow this was challenging… Great Job everyone!!

  10. Ok peeps, 1st of all I want to apologize for those who have been getting the emails stating you were NOT in class when actually you were… My [email protected]$*ing iPad is being a douche… So unless your name is on the board you’re burpee free.

    2nd of all, I want to give golf claps to all members. Who have gone above and beyond their comfort zone this month with the hero wods. Seeing everyone’s effort this month has been truly inspiring!

    Keep up the great work!

    1. ” My [email protected]$*ing iPad is being a douche” … sounds like the new Apple campaign right there.

      Thanks for the great coaching this month Marie-No, and not letting us slack off on our form just because we were tired/it was heavy etc.!

    2. Thanks Marie No and all the coaches who pushed us hard this month and pushed our fitness up a notch or two along the way. It was a hard but rewarding month for sure.

    Good one. Took my time on cleans to practice technique & not wreck myself for this week-end. Started box jumps at 32″ they felt shaky, with two hip-extension movements, so switched to 30 after 2-3 reps. Glad to have another benchmark for the future.

    8 rounds and 1 burpee box jump at 24:32 min. I LITERALLY couldn’t do a singe rep more haha. That was tough, I still feel slightly light headed.I had a few no reps in the squat clean which made things more difficult, just couldn’t keep my back straight enough to prevent tilting forward on the squat up. Jeff, Corinna, Amanda, Ron, Lance, thanks for the push, I probably would have stopped at 6 hadn’t it been for you guys haha!

    I tip my hat to all who did this workout and whoever did this Rx’d… Amazing!! Great class Jeff.
