First time doing this... can't wait!
Esp since I can do Muscle-Ups now!

Thoughts and prayers to Ryan's family. I will do this one in your honor.

Can't wait to do this WOD in honor of a HERO

Comment #5 - Posted by: time 2 cf at October 7, 2008 7:04 PM

Careful Michael ... this new WOD comes because someone lost his life.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Neil&Amy in Blacksburg at October 7, 2008 7:04 PM

As a fellow Fire Fighter it's never good to see us lose another one. More so when defending his country.


The honor will be OUR's

Comment #7 - Posted by: FireBlaine at October 7, 2008 7:05 PM

Wow Smash you sound so sympathetic, have or show some respect. Prayers to the family of this fallen hero. Blood, sweat, and tears all will be given for you.

Comment #8 - Posted by: Tyler at October 7, 2008 7:06 PM

should be really tough, should I do all the MUs even though I can only knock off like 2 in a row?

Comment #9 - Posted by: Brian ES at October 7, 2008 7:06 PM

Are there any alternatives to the muscle ups?

Comment #10 - Posted by: Ralph at October 7, 2008 7:07 PM

RIP, sir.

Comment #11 - Posted by: RV-KY at October 7, 2008 7:07 PM

It will be nice to work out in honor of a brave hero, heres to you Ryan, RIP.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Lwilcox at October 7, 2008 7:07 PM


I am fully aware of what this WOD is about. I have been doing crossfit long enough now to have respect for those who have lost their lives in service to our country and have their these great WOD's named after them. I do not think there is anything wrong with being excited for a WOD for the upcoming day. I will think of Ryan when I am doing this WOD the best I can and that is why I get excited

R.I.P Ryan...thank you for your service to this country and I pray for you and your family

Comment #13 - Posted by: Michael McCoy 5'10.5"/160 lb./23 at October 7, 2008 7:07 PM

It is really heart rending reading about ryan's death. My prayers go out to his family. This one will be a tough one.

Comment #14 - Posted by: brian t at October 7, 2008 7:07 PM

Rest In Peace Ryan.

and to the sniper, another fate awaits you. It takes a sad being to try to bring harm to the men and women trying to save your family and home, or your neighbors family and home.

In the followup, we live. Ryan doesn't. I will go hard in his honor.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Mark L. at October 7, 2008 7:08 PM

This will be a good one. I just read Ryan's story online...it is disturbing how sick some people are. Rest in peace Ryan.

Comment #16 - Posted by: Chris D at October 7, 2008 7:08 PM

Here? In the U.S.? In an American neighborhood? I simply cannot find the words tonight. They'll come, as they always do, but all I keep seeing right now is 22. 22 years old.

So very young, such a loss...

Comment #17 - Posted by: bingo at October 7, 2008 7:08 PM

Word of his senseless death demanded more info;

Here's the link (WFS);

My heart goes out to his family.

Comment #18 - Posted by: jon h at October 7, 2008 7:08 PM

Alternatives to the muscle up. In another WOD, it requires 30 muscle ups, but it states if you can't do muscle ups, do 4 pull ups and 4 dips for every 1 muscle up.

RIP Ryan.

Comment #19 - Posted by: Kevin at October 7, 2008 7:10 PM


I apologize that the tone of my message did not come across as intended.

I simply aimed to imply that through the physical progress I have made by following the crossfit program, I am now more capable of giving the effort prescribed to try and honor the life of another fallen hero.

Never would I disrespect or trivialize the hard work and ultimate sacrifice of the very people who fight to defend our everyday rights and freedoms.

Comment #20 - Posted by: Smash at October 7, 2008 7:12 PM

Its always heart-rending to see a new hero WOD. It gives me hope that there are men and women willing to give their lives each and every day to defend the liberties I've come to expect as a citizen of the USA. My prayers go out to Ryan's family and friends. Know that he's never forgotten.

Comment #21 - Posted by: headonkey at October 7, 2008 7:12 PM

Sad story indeed. RIP brother

Sorry to hear of such a sucky story. Hope it had a happy ending with a bullet taking out the sniper who took Ryans life.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Steven@CrossFitAffliction at October 7, 2008 7:15 PM

Well Neil and Amy in Blacksburg...I am sure Michael was just excited to have a new workout to do but not to take away from showing anything less than the upmost respect for Ryan and his family....Shaming Michael on the net was probably not necessary...Have a great WOD...

Comment #26 - Posted by: Nelly at October 7, 2008 7:17 PM


Maybe I'm naive, but I will never understand how things like this can possibly happen.

Comment #27 - Posted by: Shana A. CrossFit East Decatur at October 7, 2008 7:17 PM

Will definitely hit this one hard, since now I can do MU.

I can't even comprehend the type of person that would do something like this. I mean, I can understand a person luring the police to a scene so they can open fire, but firefighters? As I said, I'm at a loss for words. RIP Ryan. My prayers will go out to you and your family tonight.

Comment #28 - Posted by: Dan the Viking at October 7, 2008 7:17 PM

RIP Ryan, you are in our thoughts and your family is in our prayers. True heroes run into danger to save others knowing their own lives are at risk. It's a damn shame that there are people out there adding to the risk of firefighters. That's putting it lightly, but out of respect for Ryan I will keep it light today, at least verbally. I will do this workout hard for him.

...I don't think I understand the "Each burpee terminates with a jump one foot above max standing reach" though.

Comment #30 - Posted by: sleeveless in seattle at October 7, 2008 7:19 PM

Thank you. I just read the story regarding the ambush. Unfortunately this occurs more often than usual. Tow officers were also wounded and the murderer’s home burned to the ground in the stand-off and thus far there has been no sign of his remains. My condolences to the family of this brave young man who was responding to his duty.

Comment #31 - Posted by: Ralph at October 7, 2008 7:20 PM

Just trying to keep the tone a bit more somber than usual.

Keep working hard everyone!


Comment #32 - Posted by: Neil&Amy in Blacksburg at October 7, 2008 7:23 PM

I can't wait to this in his honor!
RIP Ryan

God Bless. I will go strong in honor. Sad story.

Comment #34 - Posted by: gahskier at October 7, 2008 7:28 PM

I've never heard of anything so disgusting. I hope the scum who pulled the trigger rots in hell! I will do this workout in honour of true heroe. I hope that the scum was caught?

Comment #35 - Posted by: Brian Firepowertraining-milton at October 7, 2008 7:28 PM

#29 - Sailor Erin.

target is 1 foot higher than you can reach standing flat footed with arms straight over head.

personally - i'm tall and my garage isn't. and luckly (hahah) i can't jump. but i will still try (and fail most likely) to bounce my head off of the ceiling each time.

Comment #36 - Posted by: Mark L at October 7, 2008 7:28 PM

What a tragedy.

Rest in Peace while we crush this WOD in your name.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Lau at October 7, 2008 7:28 PM

After reading the story of Ryan's death (especially as someone who wants to go into law enforcement) I must say I am truly disgusted that someone would create a fire for the sole purpose of shooting the emergency responders. I haven't had much time to do CrossFit the past two weeks or so because of school and my new job, but I will definitely be in the gym early tomorrow morning remembering Ryan the CrossFit way.

Comment #38 - Posted by: thbhouse at October 7, 2008 7:28 PM

Rest in Peace Ryan.

I wish the good guys could have taken that piece of crap out appropriately.

Comment #39 - Posted by: freddy c._one world at October 7, 2008 7:29 PM

RIP Ryan. My heart goes out to his friends and family.

#29 Sailor Erin: Burpees always end with a jump. For this workout the jump needs to be one foot up instead of just a little baby jump. One way to make sure you do that is set a target like a pull-up bar and touch it every time.

I'm going to go hard on this one in the park tomorrow... for Ryan.

Comment #40 - Posted by: AllisonNYC_23/5'2/perfect at October 7, 2008 7:30 PM

Ryan was a fellow brother firefighter that was a member of my Local IAFF 2665 here in St. Louis. He was only on the job for 10 months and will be missed just as all the heroes who have lost their lives. As a friend of Ryan I want to say how great it is to have the crossfit community honoring Ryan. The Crossfit community is just like firefighter community, it is a brotherhood. RIP Ryan! You will be missed

Comment #41 - Posted by: cmh at October 7, 2008 7:30 PM

Been off the kool-aid most of the summer.
This will hurt but it will be done. Probably at the fire station. God bless Ryan and his family (both his natural family and his bro's & sisters at the station)

Comment #42 - Posted by: water-ratt at October 7, 2008 7:30 PM

That story has put me on the floor! I simply cannot find the words other than "why"?

RIP Ryan.

Comment #43 - Posted by: Richard 30yom/6'4/95kg at October 7, 2008 7:34 PM

My thoughts go out to Ryan's parents.

I can't even fathom what it must be like to loose a son, I think of my own children as I write this and my eyes get watery.

RIP Ryan

Comment #44 - Posted by: Juan Manuel at October 7, 2008 7:34 PM

Rest in Peace Ryan. I will give all, because you gave all.

Comment #45 - Posted by: Curry at October 7, 2008 7:36 PM

I challenge all fftrs and pd offcrs to crush this workout as I will try to do. Ryan, we will continue to respond for those in need. Your willingness to sacrifice is one made daily by all that wear a uniform at home and abroad. God Bless you all. Be safe and come home 3...2...1... GO

Comment #46 - Posted by: Coach Ace at October 7, 2008 7:37 PM

I hate reading about new WOD's. I read the full story and those stories always bother me.

Since I am in my soccer season, I'm not doing crossfit right now, but I have a game tomorrow so I will give it my all (as I always do), but in honor of Ryan

Comment #47 - Posted by: Keith D - Crossfit Pittsburgh at October 7, 2008 7:38 PM

Need some input on muscle ups. I can do muscle ups if I (in my false grip) keep my thump on top of the ring(s) with my fingers. I have difficulty doing them with a "normal" false grip, where my thump is opposite my fingers (around/under) the ring. I am trying to break this habit, but wonder if it really matters. It might be attributable to the fact that our rings hang fairly low, so I cannot achieve a true dead hang. If I put them up higher, I can not extend or I would hit my head. Any input/help would be appreciated.

Comment #48 - Posted by: bs2103 at October 7, 2008 7:39 PM

Rest in Peace Ryan.

I can't wait to do this WOD honoring a fellow firefighter.

My heart goes out to his friends and family.

Comment #49 - Posted by: Maggie at October 7, 2008 7:45 PM

crossfit hates my hands, i have determined this. 2 weeks ago on the 30 muscle up WOD i tore them up and every time they are just about to heal another muscle up WOD comes up haha. This should be an interesting one

Comment #50 - Posted by: allen matthews at October 7, 2008 7:46 PM

Shooting a fireman responding to a call. What a stupid, self-centered world.

R.I.P. in peace brother, my crew will be reminded of your sacrafice and the many others we have lost this year. My prayers go out to you and your family.

Comment #52 - Posted by: Brad at October 7, 2008 7:50 PM

My heart is broken reading such terrible news... my sincerest condolences go out to you Mrs. and Mr. Hummert.

Comment #53 - Posted by: Rob Miller CFSCC at October 7, 2008 7:52 PM

So sad to see another Hero WOD, humbled to know you've done so much for the rest of us mere mortals.

Rest in Peace, Ryan. Like many others, I will be doing this one in memory of you and the ultimate sacrifice you've made in the line of duty. The tiny bit of pain I will feel in your namesake WOD will never compare to the pain of your family's loss.

"I can understand a person luring the police to a scene so they can open fire"... What the hell is understandable about luring police to a scene so they can be shot at? I hope that you just had your head up your *ss when you wrote that and that you don't really mean it. Next time you might want to read what you wrote before you hit the "post" button.

Our condolences to the Hummerts. The DCF crew will be going hard for Ryan and local Richmond K9 officer Bradley Moody who was killed this week.

Not enough heroes, too sad.


Comment #57 - Posted by: Jeremy Jones - Diablo CrossFit at October 7, 2008 8:03 PM

This will be tough. Just a few days after I got it...

Comment #58 - Posted by: 27/m/170...Jordan at October 7, 2008 8:05 PM

Why when frustrated do we not use our brain, our words, or even our hands? Why are we senseless cowards and use a gun!

It is confounding that something this disturbing can evade national headline news. I was out of the country at this the time of his death, but I would expect to have read about it, or had my mom include it in her news-summarizing e-mails. Stories like these are terrifying. Simply astounding.

I love civil liberties, but...increased gun control...maybe. Or increased social prevention of violent tragedies. Do firefighters have worry about an all new kind of 'fire'.

All the best wishes to the communities and family that loved and supported Ryan Hummert.

BTW: let us not insult those that neglect to recognize the significance of this loss; rather, keep the focus on the support of the community that recognizes that loss.

Comment #59 - Posted by: Mr. White at October 7, 2008 8:08 PM

I am proud to see that there is a WOD in honor of Ryan. I met him out here a few months ago. (May time frame) My condolences go out to Mr. & Mrs. Hummert. We will continue the fight.

Comment #60 - Posted by: Chris Manning at October 7, 2008 8:09 PM

#56 exactly what I was thinking. I'm not a police officer yet but I am working on it.

RIP Ryan. my condolences to the family of this brave man.

I am at a loss of words. I cannot fathom... My heart goes out to his family, 22! I dare not think of my friends who are firefighters/medics.

Tomorrow is another day, but a special one - this one's for you Ryan

Comment #62 - Posted by: Golikety at October 7, 2008 8:12 PM

All though I did not know Ryan, I am a brother in his Local. This WOD will get everything I got. I also want to thank cmh for putting this together. RIP brother!

Comment #63 - Posted by: Jason at October 7, 2008 8:13 PM

We're warned about this sort of thing happening, but I'm shocked that it actually happened. It wasn't someone from the taliban, but a homegrown terrorist. I can't imagine if this were my department. God's comfort, and my broken hearted condolences to Ryan's family, and department. We'll do this tomorrow for you. R.I.P. brother.

Comment #64 - Posted by: Shawn M at October 7, 2008 8:13 PM

Talk about mixed feelings on this one.

On one hand, I’m psyched and pumped for the muscle-ups since I just got my rings hung today in the globo gym I work out at. It took some begging and pleading with the owners, a promise to them I wouldn’t let anyone else use them (insurance reasons), and some time off from work to get them hung. The two owners of the small, private globo gym I workout at gave them a try, and I think they really liked them. Can’t wait for the looks I’m going to get from the cardio class that’ll be in the same room that the rings are in. Next step is to convince the owners to install some decent pull-up bars. Then hopefully get Level 1 Certified, start a class or two at the gym and then who knows…maybe my own box????

Then on the other hand, bummed that this is another (new) hero workout. This is not the type of workout I should be excited to initiate my rings with. My thoughts and prayers are with the Hummert Family. Gonna give the new setup an inaugural workout with everything I’ve got in Ryan’s honor.

Comment #65 - Posted by: deano at October 7, 2008 8:17 PM

I'm from the St. Louis area so I followed this story as it was happening. Definitely a meaningful workout to me. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with Ryan's family.

Comment #66 - Posted by: Josh at October 7, 2008 8:19 PM

#28 Dan the Viking,
jgebbie is right, there is nothing understandable about luring a police officer who lays his or her life on the line every time they are on duty. All law enforcement, military, fire, ambulance, or any other first responder risk their lives for different reasons. Whether it is pursuing an armed robbery suspect who may shoot and kill you if he thinks he'll get caught, walking the roof of a burning building knowing that the roof may give at any moment, or simply driving lights and sirens through a busy intersection and getting t-boned by a drunk driver. All first responders should get the same respect, respectively. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY deserves to get ambushed and murdered like that. I will bust my ass during this WOD in Ryan's honor.

Comment #67 - Posted by: DannyB_CrossFit_SantaClara at October 7, 2008 8:20 PM

A Firefighter hero WOD. Was dreading this inevitable day. For it to come because of such a senseless, evil act, unfathomable... I am off duty tomorrow, but we will use the gym roll up doors at half mast as burpee targets, just like we do at the fire station. RIP RYAN-MM, Sta. 47 A shift, BCFR IAFF L2969

Comment #68 - Posted by: Mike Manning Hc2 at October 7, 2008 8:25 PM

I have tried my whole life on several key principles I was taught one of them being "live in a way to make our founding fathers and heroes of our country proud to stand beside you one day as a fellow American." I have no qualms about saying I was shaken with grief over this story. It took me several minutes to control myself enough to even finish the story or talk to anyone. I will have a very hard time Thursday finishing this without breaking into tears. i am reminded of the quote "the only thing necessary for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." But I think the best thing I can do to make sure Ryan does not become just a difficult WOD to me is to stand up when I know something is wrong even when I'm the only one. I hope the example of this hero gets past the iron curtain of the media and spurs young people like myself to give of their time, energy, and potentially lives to make sure arrogance and pride displayed by this shooter does not take over MY country

Comment #73 - Posted by: HC25 at October 7, 2008 8:36 PM

I love new WODs as much as the next guy, but it always rips me apart inside to see a new hero WOD.

I'm left shocked and stunned for so many reasons...

I'm 23, from St. Louis, and have a brother in the special forces. I cannot begin to fathom the loss his family is feeling. Only 22 years old with so much life ahead of him. My heart goes out to his friends and family for their immeasurable loss.

I'm proud to do this WOD and give absolutely everything in me down to the very last second--a mere fraction of what Ryan has given, and what his fellow fighters give every day of their lives to serve and protect. R.I.P. Ryan.

Comment #74 - Posted by: Zach S at October 7, 2008 8:36 PM

Rest in Peace, Ryan. May all those who do this WOD remember the sacrifice.
As a career firefighter, paramedic we have risks. One which has taken a new, revived look is how we respond as we could see this on any given day w/o warning. Everyone should remember that how you train is how you react. Always think of the 'worst case' .

train hard always and look to you left & right

Comment #75 - Posted by: Robin at October 7, 2008 8:47 PM

My condolences to the Hummert family and the extended family of firefighters who all share in the loss of Ryan.

As public safety personnel, we all know what our risks are and we do the best to work around them. This is a strange and frustrating loss of one of our brethern - not being of the likes we would anticipate. Again, there is no "routine" day or anything else in our lives as cops, soldiers or firefighters. The solace in this is that Ryan reminds us to enjoy each day to the fullest as we never know what lay in store.

Love your family, friends, and partners.

God speed and fairwinds, Ryan.

I have been doing CrossFit for some time now, learned so much from the videos, demos, and discussions, but until now... have never posted.

I am a St. Louis City Firefighter, our jurisdiction touches the county municipality in which Ryan served. As the major metro department in the area, following his death, we took over his department's response area for over a week while his brothers grieved.

Ryan's death, a mere 3 months out of Recruit School, affected us all a great deal. It remains a scar not fully healed.

Having saluted this mans casket, and offered condolences to his parents, it is tremendous honor to see a WOD named in his memory. Thank you all for your thoughts.

What a sad story. This world is full of so much tragedy. And yet it is also filled with lots of amazing, kind, and caring people. I like to believe that the crossfit community has an unusually high percentage of such people. The fact that we honor the brave (Ryan) and the innocent and pure (Jeremy), consistently reaffirms that belief. I'm glad that we are all able to enrich eachothers lives by sharing in crossfit. Thank you Ryan for being brave, being a fellow crossfitter, and for inspiring us to be our best! Your life was short but meaningful.
Rest in peace.

My thoughts go out to Ryan's parents, I am happy to know that Coach has named a workout after him, in his and his families honor. I will be looking forward to doing this one, and while doing this WOD, remembering the courageous police force, firefighters, and military that risk their lives every day to make the lives of the civilians in this country as comfortable as possible. RIP RYAN and GOD BLESS!!!!

Comment #91 - Posted by: allen m at October 7, 2008 9:24 PM

technically it is a comments board. one could post their time, or comment on the WOD, this WOD is in dedication to a fallen hero. so we can comment on the situation of the fallen hero who served this country so bravely. that is being part of the crossfit community. talking to other crossfiters and thats what these boards allow us to do

Comment #92 - Posted by: allen m at October 7, 2008 9:38 PM

Matt #84 This site is a community of people that you have chosen to be a part of. We accept you just like everybody else who chooses to be apart of this community. Your commit is immature at best and I hope you never loose a loved one. I am sure if you did you would not care what you WOD time was for the day. And that you would be comforted by the care and concern that the people in this community show for one another. It is a much bigger world then we care to see at times.

My condolences to this young man's family
R.I.P Ryan you were to young.

you sir are the one who needs to gtfo. you are not even showing basic respect for the crossfit community, other people and especially a fallen hero. if this forum is so upsetting to you then go do this wod post your time and call me to let me know how you did. 303-518-5949.

to the hummert family and his brotherhood, sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you all.

Matt #84

I hope you fall and hurt yourself while you're doing a muscle up and you need a FF to come help you, and he punches you in the face instead...

I'll post my time later.

Comment #97 - Posted by: pnh at October 7, 2008 9:49 PM

R.I.P. Ryan. Its always hard to hear these things. My condolences to Mr. and Mrs. Hummert and all his loved ones.

Matt #84 Dude you still haven't posted a time for your w.o.d. Respect this young man and his family. Who are you to tell people what these boards are for?

Who is this guy?

Oh yeah, Oct. 6th weighted pull ups-110lbs

Comment #98 - Posted by: David_K_CrossFitElPaso at October 7, 2008 9:50 PM

Are you serious? When coach comes on the board and posts information or expresses his opinion, are you telling him to STFU?! These boards are censored though. So by tomorrow, your ranting ignorance will be censored off and we'll all just shake our heads. I'm sure nobody could possibly be as stupid as you seem to be. So pull that burr out of your butt and stop acting like a child. If you're so pissed that we're cluttering up your personal workout logbook, why don't you try tracking your workouts another way? You could invest $2 in a pen and a notebook and maybe write it in there.

In happier news, I'm psyched that I signed up for my L1 cert in Las Vegas on Nov. 1 and 2. Is anyone else going to that one?

Comment #99 - Posted by: Reno_Ty at October 7, 2008 9:50 PM

My heart always sinks when I log on to see another hero WOD. My prayers are with Ryan's family, friends, and brother firefighters. I just got my first muscle-up on Saturday, but I will do the WOD even if it takes me hours.

#84 Matt: I did not see you post your time? These boards are NOT JUST for posting workout times, anyone who's been reading the site for a short time could figure that out. Every time coach posts a Hero WOD, there are hundreds of comments expressing condolences. Sometimes the family of the day's Hero log on as well. You should pick another day to troll for BS.

Comment #100 - Posted by: Aaron at October 7, 2008 9:52 PM

Matt you have made two posts now and I still don't see a time. Please don't post until you have a time. Since you really do not understand what this site is for you sir should STFU or GTFO.

To my fallen brother's family my condolences, your son will never be forgotten!

Damn, another new hero WOD. It is saddest when we hear about hero's who serve us all so selflessly, fallen in the line of duty. May Firefighter, Ryan Hummert rest in peace and may his family take comfort in knowing he was doing what he loved.

May we all give a bit more effort tomorrow out of respect for those who serve our communities and our country so selflessly.

And may we all be more tolerant of the inconsiderate posts here, they don't get it. Maybe one day they will.

In the true crossfit spirit 3,2,1...GO!

Comment #102 - Posted by: Dr D at October 7, 2008 9:59 PM

Thoughts and prayers go out for the loss of a fellow FF. Unfortunately, I still can't do MUs yet, so I will enthusiastically crank out 4 PUs & 4 dips for each MU.

I visited the link for info on Ryan, and found the foundation set up in his honor has T-shirts for sale. wfs link below, and no interest on my end.


Thanks to all who honor this young man taken way too early....

Comment #103 - Posted by: Dave Coughlin at October 7, 2008 10:00 PM

Wow. The workout looks like a great one, but my heart goes out to the family and friends of this hero. Doing this workout is a small act, but tomorrow and every time this one comes up I will do it in honor of Ryan.

Comment #104 - Posted by: RyanW CFSV at October 7, 2008 10:06 PM

I think Matt #84 is trolling and he knew he could take advantage of a group of people who actually care about a man like Ryan.

I don't have access to any rings so I wanted to run this workout by you guys to see if it's level of intensity is a good, honorable substitute.

I would do a burpee and as I come up from the burpee I go straight into a jumping pull up/knee up then come down and go straight into another burpee. I would do 5 sets of 21 for time. I'm usually winded after 50 of these so I think 105 would do the trick. Please leave feedback, though, if any of you think you can make this even better in honor or Ryan.

Comment #105 - Posted by: Karl Steeves at October 7, 2008 10:10 PM

It's not hard to believe that every visitor to this site can't be sympathetic to the loss of this young man. What is hard to believe, is that several visitors miss opportunities to care for others.

#1 Smash, was not the least bit disrespectful to anyone. CrossFit is a website that is devoted to fitness, and he was talking about fitness.

#3 Michael McCoy is also talking about fitness and is excited. Disrespectful?

Then they both get slammed for not acknowledging the death of Mr. Hummert.

#11 Smash, ends up apologizing for the tone of his message? Smash, please know what you are apologizing for. There is no tone to your message, except enjoyment of CrossFit.

#26 Nelly. Thank you. No one needs to be shamed to an apology.

#32 Amy. Your tone can be a bit more somber than usual, however, trying to keep an entire CrossFit communities tone a bit more somber, would be a difficult task to say the least.

Not everyone is on the same sheet of music at the same time. The unecessary attacks on the early posts just might cause all following posts to be sure and comment on the death of Mr. Hummert, whether they are prepared to do so or not. Do they feel like being shamed by their fellow CrossFitters?

The nice thing about this site is you have the ability to state your piece in a kind and respectful way, you just can't state it for the next guy.

It is interesting what one will say to an 'alive' fellow human being, and what one will say in regards to one that is 'no longer with us' with the greater impact being to the one who is still here. Absolutely, there is honor to Mr. Hummert who daily served others. Most people run from burning buildings, when he went the other direction. Continue to honor others as you have Mr. Ryan Hummert.

Comment #106 - Posted by: Taco at October 7, 2008 10:15 PM

I can hardly express my sadness and bewilderment at these actions. My heart goes out to Ryan's family and fellow firefighters. From all at CF West Santa Cruz, our sincerest condolences.

Great job guys. I am not to interested in the haters, but I appreciate the data, facts and explanations. Listening to this group will help me explain CF to others.


Comment #108 - Posted by: sevan at October 7, 2008 10:22 PM

I was actually hoping that no one would seriously use this day to complain about comments instead of times. I was wrong. I don't know what's more depraved, someone so hell bent on a "times only" comment board to actually get angry about people leaving their respects to a fallen hero or someone pretending to be that mean just to get a reaction during a time like this.
Though I must admit, those of you playing into it and fighting with him are playing your own part of being disrespectful, even though I know you don't mean to. You're trying to defend his honor, which is admirable, but I don't think Ryan would want people fighting on the comments board over his WOD. I'm not about to point fingers, I will simply shake my head and sigh at a certain man on here's behavior. I feel like I'm playing into it even responding to this.

In an attempt to make up for such disrespect, I'm going to make today a day of silence for myself to remember Ryan.

Comment #109 - Posted by: Sailor Erin at October 7, 2008 10:28 PM

I know this is just adding fuel to the fire, oh well, this "Matt" guy got me pretty heated. Do you even know what CrossFit is? Have you actually done a WOD? Seriously, I can't stand those people that hide behind their paper and pens...or in this case, the internet. Instead of showing your respect for our Men and Women who have lost their lives trying to save us, you are acting.....well you just disgust me.

I work for the St. Louis County P.D. which is right down the street from Maplewood. Whenever a cop or firefighter is killed in the line of duty, it hits you much harder. Not to underplay the lost of a young man, but thankfully the only other life that was lost was that of the killers! Rest In Peace Ryan!

To Ryan's family,

From one of the firefighting brotherhood to the family of another, my thoughts are with you tonight. May you remember his sacrifice, and remember his good memories and the person he was.

May his brothers at the firehouse get back in the truck when the tones sound, and remember the man he was, and the job he stood for.

The CF community knows now that a hero died doing a job I'm sure he loved to do.

This workout I'll do proudly, in his honour.

RIP Ryan Hummert

Comment #124 - Posted by: Austin McLean - 25 yom - 162 at October 8, 2008 2:25 AM

Scary work out. Scary comments on this board today in response to scary events.

Had no rings nor a proper pull up bar so no kips etc, so did 3 gravitron pullups with 20k then reduced to 15k assist and 3 non assisted dips for every muscle up - so every muscle up I had to get on one gravitron then run round the back to the other. Burpees - forgot about the foothigh malarkey but there was some hight there. Got some very interesting looks from the gym instructors.

That was a scary work out; one of the toughest I have done in a while.
Thank you Ryan for the hero work out. Your fellow Americans have admirably (in most cases) expressed condolences and appreciation. Brits take note.

Comment #126 - Posted by: Jaeger 39/m/163 at October 8, 2008 2:45 AM

To echo what others have said, Matt is most likely a troll and the best way to deal with trolls is to ignore them, hard as that may be.

Taco, not sure if I agree. For the same reason people talk and interact with others differently when at a funeral, even for a person they don’t know is out of respect for the person and their family. I’m not trying to start an argument because today is not the day, I just think there is some cause for the same decorum on a message board, IMHO.

As to the story, shocking, absolutely shocking, and my deepest condolences.

Comment #127 - Posted by: Expat at October 8, 2008 2:55 AM

It's always sad to see a new Hero workout, even worse that the casualty is not a combatant (army/navy/air force or police). But a professional whose only purpose is to help and/or save other human beings.
Being an army man myself I say this without disrespecting any of the previous Heroes; What a waste.
RIP Ryan.

Can't do MU so:
5 rounds of 7x 4 Pullups/4 Ringdips and 21 burpees

Comment #133 - Posted by: timothy walsh at October 8, 2008 3:45 AM


This was in St. Louis (Maplewood is a suburb). The sniper set fire to his own car. When the Firefighters responded, he shot Ryan Hummert right as he stepped off the truck. Very tragic.

Comment #134 - Posted by: C Imes at October 8, 2008 3:46 AM

On behalf of actual snipers, be they my fellow Marines or our sister services, I object to calling this worthless POS by that name. A Sniper is a trained expert and master of a military art. A murderer lurking in a window waiting to kill any government agent from a covered and concealed position is a felon who is overdue for a date with the needle. Please don't legitimize this waste of air by calling him a sniper. RIP Ryan, such a fine name I gave it to my eldest boy.

This is a true tragedy. Such a meaningless act committed on a group who serves the greater good. This atrocity is hard to stomach. My thoughts go out to his family, and family of brothers he served with. Things like this light a fire inside of me. This workout will be done with respect, and honor.

Also, Please pray for our Marines and fellow service members in country, and around the globe. May they all come home.

It is truly a sick world in which we live that someone would set up an ambush for a Fireman! My the Lord bless and take Ryan into His fold.

Additionally, although I don't want to, I will pray for that sniper, that he mends his ways and comes to the Lord as well.

I'm saddened on two counts today. Firstly to see another hero WOD which inevitably means that someone died, and secondly because the comments board has descended into a bitching contest. I see two things to comment upon today, to pay your respects to another fallen hero, or the WOD and how you performed.

RIP Ryan, my deepest condolences to your family.

The WOD comes later.

To Mr. White, (Comment #59)
Ryan's situation is very tragic. Do you think the scumbag that broke the law by committing MURDER would have honored the gun law, if in place as you wish? No. Let this forum be about people wanting to honor our men and women that are willing to serve others and defend our FREEDOMS not some political spotlight so you can impose a belief in light of a tragedy. To everyone else, THANKYOU for what you do here for not only my fellow Marines put all public servants that pay the ultimate price for this nation

This was a senseless, cowardly action committed upon someone who was attempting to render aid. My prayers to the Hummert family and to his fellow firefighters.

WOD as RX'd: 19:41

Ring MUs - all reps started with straight elbow hang and ended with straight elbow hang; no "jump off" or half reps. First set 7 consecutive, all the other sets broken 3-2-2. The pushups in the burpees hurt the dip portion of the MUs and forced the mini-sets. I could get through the transition and push up a couple inches but could not finish to straight arm support on the rings without taking short breaks.

Burpees done with chest and thighs to floor pushups and full overhead jump 12" over my standing reach. Each jump had to have the heel of my hand above the pullup bar to count. Again it was the pushup portion that caused me to break the rounds into sets of 7-5-5-4.

Thank you for the jump standard Coach!

I live in Crestwood, which is right by Maplewood. I rememeber when this happened...no idea he was a crossfitter.

Day behind, but I wanted to give my respects to Ryan. Tomorrow I will try my best to get all the muscleups...

Comment #186 - Posted by: Mary Ann at October 8, 2008 6:47 AM

RIP Ryan

Did 4 Pullups & 4 Dips for each Muscle Up as I'm not even close to doing them.

Only did 3 rounds due to time limits.

1st Round 5:10
2nd Round 8:00
3rd Round 10:00

Total time 23:10. Got my ass kicked.
Can't wait for tomorrow!!

Pleasantly surprised. Was shooting for sub 30. Kipped the muscle-ups, lowered into full dip.

Comment #188 - Posted by: SCY at October 8, 2008 6:49 AM

Thanks for posting the article on Ryan. It's such a tragedy.

I haven't done the WOD yet and am not sure if I will being as I can barely do 3 pull-ups, much less a muscle-up, but I will train hard today in his honor.

Comment #190 - Posted by: dcyn at October 8, 2008 6:55 AM

26:54 w/all muscle-ups coming from the hang. I had a ridiculous fall as I lost grip on one of the rings mid-transition and landed flat on my back.

Thank you Ryan for all your hard work, I hope our work today is worthy of your legacy. My prayers are with your family and loved ones.

Comment #191 - Posted by: Edwin 26/M/68"/175 at October 8, 2008 7:00 AM

32/M/165....First WOD; did 7PU&& Dips in place of muscle ups each set. 27:10 or so, but I got five rounds in.

Peace Be Upon You, Ryan Hummert.

Comment #193 - Posted by: Spider Chick at October 8, 2008 7:06 AM

5 Rounds:
7 x (3 pullups + 3 Dips)
21 Burpees


Pathetic I know. The first 2 sets were 14 min, so I figured I would be done with a Sub 40 min time. I hit a brick wall after the 2nd round. I was going to quit after the 4th round. Then I thought about why I'm doing this, and what it means to finish. Ryan didn't stop short, neither would I. The 5th set were the ugliest pullups i have ever done, I started getting a headache, I had the taste of blood and vomit in my mouth and I had to rest a few seconds between every burpee, but damnit I was going to finish!

That was for you Ryan.

First round was just under 2:00
At end of 3rd round clock was at 9:00
Start of 5th round clock was ~12:30
So last four rounds were all pretty close to 3:30 each.

Last round really was pushing my pukie threshold.

RIP Ryan - may God bless you and your family.

fourth day into crossfit and this one kicked my butt. not quite as motivated as DD to finish this one, but i was doing this one at the nearest playground and it's cold here in Canada and the lungs were burning from the cold and the chest cold. hopefully with time it will get better. condolences to Ryan's family.

oh, a little fyi to anyone who feels moved to do something a little more than kill this workout (not that I'm saying the WOD isn't a wonderful tribute).


I found that when I was looking for some articles on the trajedy because it was hard to explain my vow of silence today without something explaining what happened to Ryan. I'm sure the Crossfit community can come together and help commemorate Ryan somehow.

Comment #207 - Posted by: Sailor Erin at October 8, 2008 8:06 AM

When I first saw the new WOD I thought it happened overseas, but then I followed the link to his story. What a shame that this kind of senseless violence exists; I just don't get it. Rest in peace brother and my regards to his family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Comment #221 - Posted by: Eirik at October 8, 2008 8:43 AM

This is a repost from a couple days ago. I didn't get any feedback...

I have a question for you salty crossfitters. The other day while doing Barb it felt like there was electricity flowing from my elbows to my finger tips. It didn't really hurt for the most part but it did make them harder to do. Does anybody know why that happened and what it was? It was really weird, I had never had that happen before.

Has anybody heard of this before? It was really obnoxious....

Comment #222 - Posted by: adam at October 8, 2008 8:47 AM

I read, then re-read the post today - in complete disbelief. Ryan was killed by a sniper in HERE, in THIS country. I kept looking for something about him serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.

And then, after looking through comments and reading the story... I'm still in disbelief - and anger - that some maniac could do such a thing to a person who has committed their life to saving others (or anyone for that matter.)

Ryan, I never knew you, but know that you will be sorely missed. My heart goes out to your family - you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Condolences to Ryan's family, his crew, and community. After reading the articles that have been posted, I could easily spend the whole day reflecting on the viciousness, the sheer unfairness (lame word - can't think of another) of what happened. I am glad the workout is there giving me some reason to head towards a better place than that, a more positive way to respond to this tragedy and others that are depressingly like it. It heartens me to know that people who knew Ryan seem to approve of this way of honoring his memory.

No rings, so subbed four rounds of 7 pu/7dips for each round.

This one was rough. I felt myself wanting to quit, but quickly reminded myself that I was offering this WOD up for Ryan and his loved ones. Wasn't hard to keep going after I did this.

5 rounds:
21 burpees
18 walking lunges with two 25# db
= 20:05

On prior did about 17:30 but used two 20# db.
My abs are feeling it today!

Yesterday, in Houston at a Golds Gym (I work out at the Y and they are very great about letting me do anything, plus have an excellent set up for almost all crossfit stuff). I was amused at all the fancy equipment and curiously watched as people worked out on all this. I joined the "men" in the BB section. Given the looks, I assumed I was one of few women to cross the line and come over to this section.

10 rounds for time:
DL 115# x15
15 push ups
= 18:27

I was up at 3 am yesterday and to bed at 1 am ( traveling for work). Maybe taking it easy on the workouts today and using it as a day off.

I would also like to say that I don't think these "hero days" are so we can post as "sympathy police." If someone isn't as sensitive as you think they should be, ignore it. They'll get the drift soon enough.

Not Rx'ed. Burpies were not one foot above max standing reach. My TMS was acting up in my shoulder causing me to be timid on the burpies.

Comment #262 - Posted by: Neil in Lakeland, Florida. at October 8, 2008 10:24 AM

My lord that was painful!
Did it this morning in the gym, but neglected to notice the 5 rounds part. 5 P/U, 5 Dip, 21 Burpees in 4:40. Then I moved on to a arms work out and cardio.

Came back later to do a full 5 round workout. Unfortunately there's no place to do dips outside.
5 rounds of 30 Pull Ups and 21 Burpees.
Time: 28:03.
Had another Marine come up and start talking to me about work between rounds one and two, that hurt my time by a couple minutes. ><;
Can't wait to get my rings in! Then the time will really fall off!

52:10 4pu/4dips = 1 MU (did not have rings)

I am a police in Kansas City MO and can recall this unfortunate occurence well. I also recall an even in 2004 in Kansas City with similar circumstances: an individual deliberately set a fire on his property and then opened fire with a .50 cal rifle on the responding fire/ambulance personnel, striking and wounding one paramedic. Thankfully all involved survived the encounter. It is occurrences like these that make the EMS profession so dangerous.
Unfortunately sometimes there is a certain animosity between Police, Fire, and Ambulance personnel but the truth is that for any of us, the work day filled with helping others could at any time become our last
I have a T-shirt that is from the Kansas City Fire Department that I traded a fire fighter for when rehabing a work related injury at a rehab center. I sometimes get grief for wearing the shirt around from other co-workers, but to me it is a symbol of the effort we both put in to get ourselves back to work, and I hope for the fire fighter with my police department t-shirt it means something similar
Today, I wore my Fire Department T-shirt to work out and this police officer's sweat soaked that t-shirt for a fire fighter that went down. Ryan, I was proud to put in the work in your honor

In regards of posts #266 and #296, I also think C.Poliquin doesn´t know what he´s talking about. He´s an arrogant and pompous fat bloke who thinks he knows a bit about strength training because he´s got some NHL players in his clientele, and doesn´t have the ability to see the wood from the trees. Good luck to you Charles in your quest to "fitness" curling away your biceps in globogymville. LOL fatty

RIP Brother Ryan.

Just did this WOD at the Shed in your honor. This was a painful one, but an HONOR to do. I thought of how excited you were to step off the engine, pull a line, and head towards the fire, your first fire. A cowardly act on the part of a horrible person took your life too soon. I said a prayer for you and your family as soon as I finished. I am truly sorry we lost you.

To Ryan, RIP and to his family, my thoughts are with you in this very tough time.

I'm terrible at, i.e. can't do MUs, so I subbed 2-1 for pull ups and dips, I know it is supposed to be 3-1. I still had a hard time.

full positive and negative mu reps with full lockout and full turnout at bottom-

ceiling height is perfect for jump standard as called for-

the pushup portion of the burpee was interesting as it taxed the dip in the mu which made it more challenging-

no pukie but worst taste postworkout ever- thats what i get for working out after black coffee every morning but nothing compared to the sick taste/feelings Ryans family feels- very sorry for the loss-

It's funny how rediculous people can sound when they don't have any clue what they're talking about. The gym's attorney said it all - PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY!

this was a horribly frustrating day for me. elbow has been feeling gimpy during MUs recently, and while it felt fine to begin with, that quickly ended with me only able to do one at a time (i can usually knock out 3+ on WODs like this). haven't been recovering as quickly as i normally do. might be time for a few days off.

Maximus comment #324

Just read the article and it makes think back to the video on the journal with Col. McCoy and this idea of accountability. I work at a high school and I see it every day with the kids, everyone wants to pass the buck now a days. The idea that he wasn't told to rest or get water is ludicrious. The guy is an adult, not some child that has to raise his hand to go to the bathroom. I guess I don't have the mental fortitude to push through but when I am hurting I take a breather or grab some water and go again. It is just common sense. Thanks for posting the link.

Real happy that I got this in under 20 minutes, especially with the way things have been going lately. Burpees were surprisingly relaxed, and the muscle-ups were horrible.

Me: 42yo/M/5'10"/170lbs/10%BF

Warm Up: Greg A's warm Up 10 reps per set

WOD: Ryan 19:39

Round 1 2:19
Round 2 4:23
Round 3 4:47
Round 4 4:19
Round 5 3:55

Cool Down: about ten minutes of hand stand practice. I am doing about 30 seconds per hand stand.

Muscle Ups: Bar Muscle ups putting my left arm over the bar about half a second before the other arm goes over. I can get both arms over at once but when I have to do a lot of them, I get lazy and put one over then the other, I need to stop that.

Burpees: That one foot above my reach target seems very far away sometimes and I missed it several times on this one, especialy on the third round where I must have missed it five times, what a tough one.

Rest in peace Ryan. You are a loss to your family, and your country. You will be missed but never forgotten.

Have Fun, Train Hard,


Comment #356 - Posted by: Billy at October 8, 2008 1:37 PM

20:45 as rx'd, wanted sub-20 but MU's too slow.

Burpee strategy worked well, I was all about the multiples of 3's and I took short breaks when needed. They could have been faster but what do you do, burpees kill me. Too many long breaks on the MU's but I didn't miss any and all reps turned out at the bottom.

My condolences to the friends and family of Ryan, to see a life taken away in that manner makes me so sad. It was an honour to do this WOD in his memory.

And on the other, a sad opportunist who just won judgment (http://www.navytimes.com/news/2008/08/marine_crossfit_081608w/) in the local court (Prince William County, VA) against a fellow CrossFit disciple for allegations about permanent injuries sustained while doing a CrossFit workout. What ever happened to individual responsibility and taking ownership of your actions?

As a brother Firefighter my thoughts are with your family, your brothers in the firehouse, and your local community who truly have lost one of their bravest tragically young. A lot of my team are the same age as Ryan- it stings me reading this. God bless.

P.S. Did I miss something with "Matt", I didn't see a comment??? Unbelievable that someone in the CrossFit community would disrespect a brother that way?

Just when I thought it couldn't get any harder, it did. This WOD seriously kicked the crap out of my butt. I lost track of time as I was getting my ass kicked. So, I completed the rx'd rounds, however, I didn't get the final time. I would venture to say that it took me at a minimum 30 minutes. The burpees certainly did the job. What a workout!!!

To the Hummert family, I am sorry for your loss.

I was looking forward to using my new rings this afternoon but was rained out and forced to go to the gym where I was only able to do ring dips, the pull-up bar being too low for a muscle-up.

38:02 subbing 4 pull-ups and four ring dips for every muscle-up.

140 pull-ups, 140 ring-dips, 105-push-ups and 105 jumps from a deep squat is a lot of work. I was glad to do it.

More better faster

I am deeply distraut to learn of such a malicious act such as the one that robbed Ryan of his life, a dept of a brother and a family of a son. I am a firefighter. I understand the gravity/grief of a lost brother, however it becomes more difficult learning of that loss resulting from deliberate crime.

To all of Ryan's brothers and family-my deepest sympathy.

To all others, don't stop pushing yourselves to obtain a higher level in fitness and in life. You too may, someday, stand before many as a hero.

the fact that i did this in honor of a real firefighter (i'm only certified, looking for a job) pushed me harder than ever before.
thank you for being a hero ryan and may you rest in peace brother

my friend and i were talking after the workout.
he can't do muscle ups so he subbed with 24 pull ups, 24 dips for the muscle ups.
he said "it's way harder, and more time consuming subbing 24 pull ups and 24 dips than doing 6 muscle ups since its more."
i beg to differ.

any help/comments/opinions would be much appreciated.

Muscle-ups were broken into singles mostly, but otherwise not too painful. First time doing them w/o chalk. The extra sweat actually helped keep me from tearing that chunk out of my wrist again!

Burpees were murder. If I could break them into 10s instead of 5s, I think I'd be under 16:00 on this.

To make matters worse, Laurie (the owner) and the good people at Rainier Crossfit were waiting for me to finish last night so they could go home. (Laurie, thanks for pushing me to finish the 2nd round of muscle-ups. You showed me some great crossfit style tough love.)

I just realized when posting on my personal blog that I had not jumped 1 foot during burpees. Will have to get out later @ do some for good measure.

Also only able to muster jumping burpees w/ rings @ head level & started burpees w/ full arm ext.


Good Times!

First time post on this site. We did this WOD today at CFSCC. It was a tough one for me as I am new to MU. Spent the whole workout thinking about Ryan and his family.


Comment #620 - Posted by: Skip at October 9, 2008 3:15 PM


21 pull-ups/dips (7x3 each)

Did three rounds and my arms were shot.

Comment #621 - Posted by: Andy A at October 9, 2008 3:35 PM

Still can't do muscle ups, though managed some jumping ones on the bar in the gym today.

Scaled to:
3 rounds
21 jumping pullups
21 dips
21 burpees

21m 28s, this really kicked my ass and I nearly quit after round 1.

Very sad and moving story about Ryan, I like many other thought this had happened in somewhere like Iraq, certainly not America.

Comment #622 - Posted by: Greg Hunt at October 9, 2008 3:52 PM

Did 4 rounds:
21 pull-ups
7 ring dips
21 burpees

This was miserable. In round 1 I did 21 ring dips. That was stupid.

Comment #623 - Posted by: PatS at October 9, 2008 4:41 PM

I had to re read this WOD several times... I was thinking to myself "I thought it said Ryan was a firefighter what are they talking about sniper fire?" Then I read the story from the link someone posted above. I couldn't believe it. I understand that every loss of life is a tragedy, especially the loss of a life of someone who dedicates their lives to saving and protecting others, but everyone goes into these jobs with their eyes open to the risks involved, I for one was asked several times in my army interviews about how I would deal with the possibility of having to take someones life etc, but a fireman shouldn't have to worry about being shot at, they are already risking their lives battling fires, now people are shooting them? What is wrong with this world? RIP Ryan and my thoughts are with your family, friends and borthers and sisters from the fire dept.

I was determined to get my first muscle up in honor of this brave man... Unfortunetly it was not to be, I almost got it a few times but after 9 failed attempts with the clock still running I lowered the rings and did jumping muscle ups.

Subs: Jumping mu's after first one. Regular burpies.
Had to wait until this morning as I didn't have time to do a lengthy WOD earlier in the week. After round 3, I stopped my stopwatch and actually wrote down my time and DNF. I was fked up and REALLY wanted to quit. After a minute or so, I got up, restarted the stopwatch, and did round 4. After round 4, I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted to quit. At this point there was only one more round (at least that's what I kept saying to myself). I was able to finish the WOD...shaky, woozy and thankful to be alive. RIP Ryan.

1 week away from BGDC event in Milpitas!

Back to my 3 WOD behind schedule...so I get to try a failed WOD over:

38:58. Failed on the first MU! When I got it on the 2nd try, I saw stars, and realized that the 14-hr drive back home might be affecting me. Persisted and ended up with an OK time. I ended up failing on 3-4 other MU attempts. This was definitely one that challenged me mentally and forced me to think twice about quitting.

Very hard WOD for me today, feeling tired...19:28 but must say I'm not sure anyone would consider what I did muscle ups. I'm still working technique so the rings were at shoulder and I could almost jump into the dip part. But tried hard to thrust forward and outline my under pecs. RIP Ryan, anything about a firefighter hits close to home for my husband and I. He's a firefighter for Rural Metro in Tucson and it's scary when something like this happens to someone who is trying to save lives and rescue a home. There was a tragedy in Tucson last June to a sheriff, Officer Hite. A guy decided to go on a shooting spree and target police hitting 3 officers and one of those was killed. The guy went from end to end of the city and got nearly every department of police and fire involved. My husband was one of the paramedics who tried to resuscitate Officer Hite. Unfortunately, he did not make it. Bless all those who put their live's on the line for ours.

CFWU - 3. Regular reps except no dips last set. Superman. Burgener.


Hanging muscle ups from knees. Mostly true muscle ups for first time. Good kip at bottom. Need to push harder on burpees next time.

Comment #733 - Posted by: jrm at October 16, 2008 6:02 AM

Our small CF group works out 100 yards from the Maplewood firehouse. Some of us are from Maplewood and this was really tough for the community both close and far away. Can't wait to do this WOD since our group is about a week or so behind. RIP Ryan!

Here's the story as provided by a link previously posted. We should all be tahnkful for each day we have on this earth. I'll give all that I have in this WOD for you Ryan. Thanks for your service!

On July 21, 2008 the lives of a family, a fire department, a community, a region and a nation changed. At approximately 5:30 a.m. a lone sniper set fire to his vehicle across the street from his home. At 5:42 a.m. The Maplewood Fire Department received their notification of a vehicle fire. Engine Company 3114 responded with four firefighters on-board. Within minutes, 5:48 a.m., they arrived on-scene of a vehicle on fire. After they dismounted Engine 3114 Ryan and his fellow firefighters, were preparing to extinguish the vehicle fire when an explosion was heard. Ryan fell to the ground. Confused and not knowing that they were under gun fire, they rushed to his side to provide aid. The explosion was a gun shot from a sniper that struck and killed 22 y/o Firefighter/Paramedic Ryan Hummert instantly. Suddenly additional explosions were heard. Refusing to accept the fact that Ryan had been mortally wounded and still wanting to provide treatment, a firefighter had to be forcefully moved to a safer area behind Engine 3114.

As more firefighters and police arrived, the tragedy continued as the sniper took aim and seriously wounded two police officers. Unable to escape and with no other options, the firefighters had to remain there until a police S.W.A.T. team could carrying Ryan out and rescue them.The ensuing stand off would last for six more hours until it ended with the gunman taking his own life, but not before devastating the lives of countless people. The home then burned to the ground as fire fighters and police had not learned the fate of the gunman.

What a heartwrenching story...before our WODs we always remember those who have fallen. CF is not only a brotherhood but also a sisterhood! I'm an over 60 female who reached my first goal of pullups in my first 9 months of CF, now my second goal is one muscleup before my 2nd year is up! I hope it's during "Ryan"! Rest in peace Ryan!
