Looks like fun. I just want to know how the posted times are acurate. If you take out the 5 minutes of rest it means that Austin, Angie, and Kristan did each round sub 1 minute. I find that hard to believe. If I'm wrong then wow.

Comment #1 - Posted by: Sean Waklee at December 6, 2011 5:18 PM

Great to see an Australian hero honoured. RIP

Comment #2 - Posted by: Brian Bucholtz at December 6, 2011 5:18 PM

@Sean

Very impressive times. Remember, though, that they are only resting for 4 minutes, because there is no minute of rest counted after the fifth round.

Comment #3 - Posted by: Gerard Dawson at December 6, 2011 5:23 PM

Thank you CrossFit for recognizing the sacrifice Aussie Soldiers are making to keep our countries safe! Hope there will be more Aussie Hero WOD's to honour our fallen. Cobi.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Sammy at December 6, 2011 6:49 PM

RIP Sgt. Wood. Thank you for your sacrifice.

It is pretty sad that the first comment mentions nothing of the man this WOD is named after. Pretty sad state of affairs when people just care about their times and what others are doing and not the honorable heroes these WODs are named for.

Comment #27 - Posted by: Patrick at December 6, 2011 6:54 PM

Comment 1, looks like Austin did the WOD Sans runs - that will blow some times out :)

Comment #28 - Posted by: Brett Fforde at December 6, 2011 7:03 PM

@ comment #1. They have posted 2 versions of the workout for some reason. One with a 400 meter run and one without. The one that Austin did has no run.

Comment #29 - Posted by: Marcus at December 6, 2011 7:07 PM

everyone hating on sean should look at his comment. To get a 1 min round you'd probably have to run the quarter in somewhere near world record time. He's right to ask. I remember crossfit years ago, when asking wasn't punished, but rather responded to with mostly well thought out, reasonable responses. The chest thumping stuff is new.

Comment #30 - Posted by: matt d at December 6, 2011 7:17 PM

To hopefully avoid some unnecessary confusion and disagreement in the comments: when I first checked this WOD today it did not include the run. There were several times posted along with a demo video. When I checked back 30 minutes or so later, the times and video were gone and a run was included.

Draw your own conclusions, but whatever you think happened, don't let it take away what's really important about today's workout.

RIP Seargent.

Comment #31 - Posted by: Jay at December 6, 2011 7:18 PM

Great to see an Aussie hero acknowledged. The crew from CrossFit GEO will be linking up with the InnerWest CrossFit guys to honour Brett and his sacrifice.

Comment #32 - Posted by: CrossFit GEO at December 6, 2011 7:20 PM

Thank you CFHQ for honoring an Aussie in a Hero WOD. RIP Sergeant Wood, prayers to your family.

Comment #33 - Posted by: ShelliS at December 6, 2011 7:23 PM

I may be missing something but where are the posted times and videos. I can't find this workout anywhere and am not sure what a burpee box jump is. Anyone?

Oops...I meant @comment 28!

Comment #37 - Posted by: Josh at December 6, 2011 7:48 PM

All,
There was a mistake in the original posting of this workout, and in the communication of the workout to the athletes ahead of time (the 400m run was omitted, hence the blazing times). We apologize for the confusion. The workout is correct now.

Comment #38 - Posted by: Tony B at December 6, 2011 7:50 PM

CrossFit Ipswich QLD Australia, will be hosting one class only tommorrow. Wood RIP my fellow soldier. You are a HERO to all of us. Tommorrow the crew from CFI will stand for 1 minute prior to the WOD and remember you and all of those who fought with/beside you. Our thoughts and prayers are for all personell still serving. May GOD guide your way. RIP

Comment #39 - Posted by: CrossFit Ipswich at December 6, 2011 7:51 PM

There couldnt have been a better choice for the first Australian Soldier to be thus remembered. I will be leaving it on the field for this guy and Sean MaCarthy and Greg Sher and all the others.

Comment #40 - Posted by: Matt G at December 6, 2011 7:56 PM

Thank you CFHQ for honouring an Australian. The loss of life is tragic anywhere and for any reason. Thank you to the brave men and women protecting our rights to live in the world we love.

Comment #41 - Posted by: Ilya at December 6, 2011 7:59 PM

This WOD will hold special meaning when I hit it this week. Whilst not knowing Sgt Wood personally, my good mate & patrol 2IC back in the day, Sgt Todd Langley(2nd CDO) was killed only a month before Brett. Thank you HQ for honoring the sacrifice our brothers are making. RIP boys

Comment #42 - Posted by: WF at December 6, 2011 7:59 PM

Where do you see times at? I dont see what yall are talking about

Comment #43 - Posted by: Matthew Lawrence at December 6, 2011 8:12 PM

Crossfit Sri Ram Ashram, India

Got a good laugh out of Tony B's posting about a mistake in the original of this workout. Because of the time difference in India we do the wod as soon as it's posted, hence we did it without the run. Can't wait to tell the boys about the 'mistake".

Comment #44 - Posted by: Rashmi at December 6, 2011 8:22 PM

Seems that none of the boxes were brave enough to take on this hero wod.

We will do you justice on this WOD. Rest in peace bud

@ 28 & 34 yes I agree where is the love?
Crossfit Queanbeyan have their next weeks WOD's sorted but will do Woody for sure in the folowing weeks for sure, Australia day just over a month away and Aussie workout then would be great thnx CFHQ

Comment #48 - Posted by: Kane at December 6, 2011 8:35 PM

@matt d thanks. I wasn't trying to diminish anyone's accomplishment, but a 400m run alone is gonna take 1 min and that's if you are a 4 min miler, which I'm betting none of them are. Not sure why but the vid and the times are gone now.

Comment #49 - Posted by: Sean Waklee at December 6, 2011 8:46 PM

13:48: without the 400m runs, including the 4 min rest. i'll do it again, running included, in honor of our mates down under. great workout.

Comment #50 - Posted by: ken c at December 6, 2011 8:53 PM

Some debts can never be repaid. RIP Brett

Comment #51 - Posted by: Michael at December 6, 2011 8:54 PM

I'll be accepting apologies from the Internet tough guys who told me to check the vid and work harder. Looks like CFHQ proves me correct.

Comment #52 - Posted by: Sean Waklee at December 6, 2011 8:55 PM

Great that CFHQ supporting the memory of the fallen

Comment #53 - Posted by: J at December 6, 2011 8:57 PM

Well done CF for supporting this. Recognises both the man and his brothers in arms still out there. And that probably means more than you realise.

Comment #54 - Posted by: GH at December 6, 2011 9:09 PM

so what s a sumo deadlift high pull and a thruster?

Comment #55 - Posted by: Vickie at December 6, 2011 9:13 PM

@Sean

I was wondering about those times too, I'm just getting into shape again so i can't talk but ol' M J's world record for the 400m is 43.18s...

The run wasn't listed when they first posted, plus they removed the times that were posted. A mistake it looks like.

Comment #63 - Posted by: Chris at December 6, 2011 9:53 PM

RIP Brett Wood. CrossFit Bundaberg, Qld Australia will be tackling this one head on, in memory of Sgt Brett Wood and with respect for all ADF personnel that do so much for so little recognition. Onya HQ for putting this one up for the Aussies. Cheers.

Comment #64 - Posted by: Alec at December 6, 2011 10:15 PM

Pleasantly surprised to see recognition of an Aussie warrior on the CrossFit HQ site. Well done HQ. To all those who are busting their arse on this workout and/or observing a minutes silence I congratulate you for observing the memory of Sarge Wood and his ultimate sacrifice.

Comment #65 - Posted by: Steve at December 6, 2011 10:16 PM

Thanks to everyone for their support with this WOD and their blessing to our Troops. Tomorrow, Thursday 8th Dec, CrossFit Wagga and many affiliates and military base's will conduct this WOD and raise money to support a fantastic charity and honour the dead.

Thank you jimmy (organiser) and CrossFit HQ.

Comment #73 - Posted by: Emma at December 7, 2011 1:58 AM

This has been a long time coming. For all those adf doing the WOD, you do honour to your trade. To all those boxes in Australia that chose not to take part in what is the single most wide-spread sign of respect for a fallen soldier, being a HERO WOD, i have no respect for you. I stood face to face with box owners and asked them to take part and they said no. Remember who serves this country. Remember those who gave their lives. Show respect for those who dare to win.
Ill be doing it for Sean Macarthy and Greg Sher.

Great WOD, and for those questioning the time it's because they added the 400m run which those with posted times did not do.

Comment #79 - Posted by: Joel Alzola at December 7, 2011 3:30 AM

What exactly is a Burpee Box jump? Do you start the Burpee with hands on box?? Or hands on the floor? When ending the burpee I assume you jump up onto the box instead of just jumping into the air?

Comment #80 - Posted by: Lis at December 7, 2011 3:46 AM

30min 22sec, including rest periods.

400m run on sand then 10 burpee tuck jumps and 20 on sumo high pull and 20 thrusters with 24kg kettlebell on the beach in barbados. great way to start a day on holiday.

I understand why the Austin Maleolo demo vid from earlier has been removed, bc he did not do the 400m run on any of the rounds.

As a result, I did a modified version of it:

5RFT of:
10 Burpee Box Jump (24in).
10 SDHP (55lbs KB).
10 DB Thrusters (35lbs DB's).
Time: 7:02.

Comment #97 - Posted by: rpj at December 7, 2011 7:15 AM

Still sore from 'EVA' and squats. I'll do this one tomorrow.

Disappointed with the hateful attutides on display yesterday. If you are going to get angry over an article don't read it. Don't demand that HQ conform to your world view. Just take from the website the parts that you like and leave the rest. Geez people it's not all about you.

Comment #101 - Posted by: Dman at December 7, 2011 7:35 AM

not to minimize the bravery and sacrifice made by Sergent Wood, but why didn't crossfit honor some American soldier, sailor or marine who made the ultimate sacrifice on this anniversary of National Pear Harbor Remembrance Day?

I didn't "rest" for a min after each round because I'm sure all the huffing and puffing between the SDHP and Thrusters made up for it... Also I subbed the Burpee box jumps for Burpee pullups because our 24" box was being used for something else

RIP Sgt. Wood. Thanks for your sacrifice, and to your family for sharing your story with us.

Curious to those of you wod'ding in a box: does your box do none, some, lots, or all main site hero WODs?

One local box I know about does few if any. Wonder why.

Comment #175 - Posted by: matt h - 50 179# 1mar11 at December 7, 2011 3:04 PM

27:52 as Rx, including the 4 min rests.

That was a horrible WOD, much harder than it looks on paper. Runs done upstairs on treadmill @ 8-8.5. 1 minute rests spent slowly staggering back up the stairs and then restarting the treadmill. SDLHP all unbroken, thrusters all 5-5. Got slow on burpee box jumps toward the end.

Comment #176 - Posted by: Sheldon N (M/34/6'/183) at December 7, 2011 3:17 PM

My first time doing burpee boxjumps and they add a whole new level of suck to both exercises.

Can someone explain the burpee box jump?
I thought it was pretty straight forward but when I tried it today but it wasn't that easy to do a burpee right in front of the box without hitting it and if I did one further back I was too far from the box to end with a jump. What am I missing?

Ran in an inch of snow and 20 degree temps. Something wrong about subbing rowing due to weather while doing a Hero WOD. Minute rest was perfect time to layer up for the run. RIP Sargent Wood.

Comment #183 - Posted by: Phil at December 7, 2011 3:34 PM

Bring your feet closer under you towards your hands and your head should be a few inches away from the box. the last two rounds i was tired and had to step a little because i could not get my feet close to my hands.

Hope it helps and does not confuse you more.

Crossfit is about exposing weakness and seeking balance. So an article that challenges our beliefs might make us use our brain or learn how to disagree in a civil manor. Is a fit brain a part of fitness?

I had the honour of doing this hero WOD with Brett Woods comrades and in front of his wife today at Holdsworthy Army barracks today. I'm a civilian from Innerwest Crossfit in Sydney. What those guys do for us we can never truly appreciate. I respect them all and was proud just to be invited to do it. RIP Brett Wood and all the other Heros who have died for us.

i thought i was moving the same speed both times - went unbroken for the bbj & sdhp and broke thrusters into 5/5 for all sets. probably ran faster and got back to the bar quicker second time.

Best time 31:23 Last time 42.36 and 5 others in between.
It was an honour to do the WOD in the name of Sgt Wood. Our collective thoughts go out to his family.
Thanks again CFHQ for honoring an Aussie Digger.

M/ 37/ 133 lbs/ 5'-6"
As Rx: 27:02 (with all runs and all rest breaks... from start to finish)
This was a HARD WOD... this one taed me... those minutes off seemed to go by really fast after the first round.. I was going at about 9.2 mph on the treadmill.. then had to walk about 150 feet or so to the box and I had my 95 lbs barbell (small weights for a little bigger ROM..) to do the SDHP & Thrusters..
to be honest, until the end of the 3rd round, I was feeling ok., but after that.. I really had to push mentally.. I REALLY wanted to stop after 4 rounds, but just walked byself over to the treadmill and banged out the last round... first round was about 3:30... a little slower with my burpee boxjumps after that... all SDHPs were unbroken and not that bad... I did eventually have to break up my thrusters in rounds 4 & 5 into 5 +5... great mental and physical workout to keep on pushing round after round...
The thing that makes it easy and hard at the same time is each component is not that hard and is only 10 reps.. but after you get a little winded, it gets mentally tough to jump onto the next station...
I have to work on getting onto the next station a little faster... too many b.s. little breaks between stations in my opinion.
I predict that something like this, but harder will be in the next Games.. maybe doubling this or going like 30, 20 10 with no breaks, but for time... with no breaks you better be in super shape and pace yourself a bit more actually...
Great WOD...
at 37 my recooperation is not what it used to be... this was a good and fun WOD.. a good test mentally to stay in the fight in my opinion.

As Rx: 27:02 - this one was tough mentally, but i forgot to mention that i was SUPER tight comming into this from the heavy back squat last night... I have not been heavy back squatting and so my legs were realyl tight and sore.. took a long time to warm up and was not sure I'd really do all 5 rounds, but glad I did and pushed through it.. the mental part is the biggest gain... you gain the confidence that you can and WILL finish and finish strong with all legit reps, etc.

It was an honour to be an official sponsor and compete at the Holsworthy Barracks here in Australia side by side with Sgt Wood's colleagues, friends and supporters.
A brutally tough workout to honour an equally tough man.
In the team event (1 round each per person, no 1 min rest.) we scored 14:24 and came 4th on the day.
Thank you Cpl Jimmy Wright and Thank You Crossfit HQ for honouring such an amazing Aussie.

Tried to do this with a 36" box. After 26:30 or so I had gotten through three burpee jumps on last round. Got a little too excited about finishing under 30 minutes I guess and I totally underjumped and left a good chunk of both shins on the box. Had to curtail the workout to control the bleeding (folks at my box gym did not seem happy). Good WOD though. Next time goal will be to finish under 30 minutes.

CFWU-2. From home. Superman. Burgener. DU.
29:32 Inc all 5 rests.
Good job pushing through thrusters on last round. Didn't set bar down. Did on rep 7 of sets 2-4. Thrusters easier when I "sat back in chair" SDHP not bad. Generally just pause after rep 7. Runs on TM so able to force pace. Kept it on 9. Burpees not too bad. Slow & steady. Too slow judging from other posted times.

As rx'd, except I only did regular burpees and didn't use the full minute of break each time (usually went back to work after about 30 seconds). Liked the intensity of this WOD, plus the fact that it really hits all the muscle groups.

As rx'd, 26:32 (not counting the round 5 minute of rest).

Tough one - harder than it looked on paper. Just tried to grind through this. Unbroken reps, but plenty of gasping in between movements. 1 minute rest was great, but not long enough! Whew, it's hot out there today. Approx. round splits (work only):

4:00
4:15
5:00
4:30
4:45

Good workout. Changed the strategy on this one compared to last time. Went easier on the runs, and all out on the SDLHP and thrusters.

25:30 RX'd (2:26 PR) :D
