The men and women of USSOCOM are the best among us. These warriors endure when most cannot. We lost 30 of these men this weekend along with local Afghan support personnel. We remember these fallen warriors with hard work and renewed respect and honor for all those who selflessly serve instead of profit.

  2. 'prego' Teach

    Awesomely brutal this morning! It was great working out with the Pacemakers.
    I am thankful for all of our servicemen and women who make so many sacrifices for our freedom.
    7+3 (Regular Push Ups – the belly now gets in the way!)
    I also got to workout with G and Macho for the first time in a LONG time!!!

    It’s going to be, as Coach Jim says, “Effin hot”….so please drink fluids throughout the day today! HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE!
    Thank you πŸ™‚

    Tough, tough workout, but a great tribute to honor our service folks who made the ultimate sacrifice to serve our country.
    8+9 (Rx)

  6. G

    6 + 5 (Rx)
    Thank you to whoever owns the hot pink grips! Saved my hands and they got me going on a good rhythm on the first 2-3 rounds of this infamous Toes-to-bar to Pull-Up! Didn’t mean to workout at 5:30am but glad I did!
    Awesome folks to work out with this early morning! Luv me some Prego Teach πŸ™‚ You are still a beast at this stage of your pregancy!
    Rough WOD but it’s nothing compared to all the service men and women that brave being in front of or within enemy lines.
    We can’t repeat it enough…like Teach said
    HYDRATE H Y D R A T E – electrolytes!!!

  7. G

    Welcome back Stephen D and Valentin!!!
    Good to see Jeff D and Barkley back in action!

  8. Billdozer

    7+4(RX) Tough workout, just like it should be. God Bless our real heroes! The least we can all do today is 30 minutes of hard work in their honor.

  9. Dr. Peter Osborne

    9+1 (RX) Ripped open again today. Small price to pay. God Bless our fallen heroes. Good working with the 5:30 class today.

  10. dirtyD

    good job everyone paying tribute in this heat.
    I am seeking refuge from the heat @work today.
    God Bless those who sacrifice for our nation.

  11. chrissy c

    5 Rnds + 30 + like 17m lunges (ie-almost 6)
    Alternated rounds with 5 CFPU and 10 regular.
    This one kicked my butt today.

  12. S*Nash

    5+3 (15#)
    Curse you toes to bar! I ripped, but that seems to be a trend. I really wanted to scale after I saw the skin tearing away from my hands, BUT its a hero wod so I endured the pain. Also, started about 2:30 into the wod because I was on baby duty πŸ™‚ Nonetheless, great wod, proud and thankful for the men and women who serve to protect us.

  13. Robert Hammond

    6 + 28 rx And it’s hard to fathom the pain and loss for the surviving families (wives, kids, brothers, sisters, parents) of these fallen soldiers.

  14. George

    7 rounds (minus 5 pull ups – my hands look like I was doing pullups on a cheese grater, had to back off).
    Great noon workout – the heat adds so much more to the WOD.

  15. Will.I.Am

    God bless the fallen and their families. It was an honor to do this WOD for them.
    That being said, I sucked ass at this one, too. Me & T2B/PU’s just don’t friggin’ mix!!
    5+30 (Rx) got abt 19m on the Lunges, but close only counts in horseshoes n hand grenades.

  16. Diva

    6 rounds + everything except 15m. Not sure how to write that.(T2B/JPU,15#)
    Great WOD for a great cause!!!

  17. Junior

    4 rounds (reg squats, reg push ups)
    Thanks JB for keeping an eye on me. Silverback, thanks for being at the box for moral support. Just got out of the shower with Zip loc bags over my hands. Not a pretty sight. Doesn’t even compare to the sacrifices of our troops. Definitely worth it. Thank you for doing what so many of us don’t have the guts and courage to do.
    Great work, 5:00pm crew!

  18. Green Lantern aka Playboy (fka bryan g.)

    7+1 rx
    The 1 was so I could have 1 more than Eric.

  19. PLove

    6+9 ( T2B jumping PU, KPU)
    Awesome workout 6 pm! This WOD really sucked but we all did it for a great cause!
    Thank JB for keeping me moving! stopping for 2 seconds easily turns into 10 seconds! ha

  20. Kim

    6 + 30 (T2B jumping PU)
    Brutal!! I wanted to quit but as I wore the Navy pin my cousin gave me I knew this was nothing compared to all they sacrifice!!
    (He is a Navy SEAL E8 17 year enlisted … just got back home in July from year deployment in Afghanistan! Love ya SCOTT!!)
    Thanks Jim, it was an honor!

  21. Disco D Nicole
