Thanks to everyone for making the 2013 CG-6535 Hero WOD a success. The WOD was completed by CrossFitters in Puerto Rico, Miami, New Orleans, Elizabeth City, Washington DC, Houston and North Bend. With your help, we were able to honor our fallen heroes in a way only the CrossFit community can truly understand.
To date, you have raise more than $650 through the purchase of commemorative t-shirts, with all proceeds going to the Coast Guard Foundation Fallen Hero Scholarship Fund.
If you participated in the 6535 Hero WOD, please let us know by sending pictures, video, or results to firstname.lastname@example.org or by posting them on our facebook page.
Please continue to check our website for more information, or contact email@example.com with questions.
6535 HERO WOD Rules:
65 Air Squats
35 Burpee Pull-ups
There will be two divisions:
1. Individual: All movements and reps will be completed by a single individual.
2. Team (2-4 members): All members will complete the run portions together. During other movements, reps may be divided as necessary, but one member must be working at all times. All reps of a single movement must be completed prior to the team beginning the next movement.
Movement standards and Scaling:
65 Air Squats: Full squats performed to below parallel position (Hip crease below Knee).
35 Burpees to Pull-ups: A complete burpee (chest and thighs touching ground to standing position) followed by one pull-up with chin above bar level. No "sprawling" will be permitted.
*Scaling will be performed through the use of assist bands and/or an 8" box will be used for jumping pull-ups*
400 Meter Run: leaving the workout area, run to the designated mark and return.
There will be a 60 minute time cap for completion of the WOD for both divisions.
