During November we will be including some Hero workouts.
CrossFit has a longstanding association with the military and uniformed services – hero WODs honour some of those who gave their lives in the line of duty.
If you check out WODvember.com you will find a 30 day challenge comprising a hero WOD for every day throughout November. They raise money for Help for Heroes and some brave souls actually take on the challenge of a hero WOD every day for a month!
We won’t be doing that, but we will be including a few hero workouts during November. If you would like to support Help for Heroes you can buy the WODvember t-shirt or make a donation via the WODvember website.
Today we will be doing a British hero WOD that you won’t find on crossfit.com. If you are interested in looking at the British Hero WODs check out their Facebook page.
