Today’s workout is a HERO workout called the Hotshots 19. The description of it, found below, is taken from the CrossFit Journal website.
“On June 30, (2013) 19 members of the (Granite Mountain Interagency) Hotshot team died
fighting a fire that grew to more than 2,000 acres about
34 miles south of Prescott in Yarnell, an old gold-mining
village with a population of roughly 650.
To commemorate the fallen and raise money for their
surviving family members, CrossFit Inc. held a memorial
workout at Captain CrossFit in Prescott: six rounds for time
of 30 squats, 19 135-lb. power cleans, 7 strict pull-ups and
a 400-meter run that took athletes past the makeshift
memorial that is the chain-link fence surrounding Prescott
Fire Department Station 7.”
As always, a very sincere thank you to all of our members, and their families, who protect and serve us every day.
6 Rounds for time of:
19 Power Cleans, 135# / 95#
7 Strict Pull-ups
