Post time to comments.

Scaling:
Today’s workout should look oddly familiar. This is a dumbbell variation of the Hero workout DT. The loading of the dumbbells should be on the lighter side of moderate and allow you to perform all 27 reps in 3 sets or less. More advanced athletes should try to maintain unbroken reps for as many rounds as possible, while less-experienced athletes should consider strategic breaks to keep moving through the rounds. For example, perform 11 deadlifts, then break. After a quick breath, perform your 12th deadlift and move right into 8 hang power cleans before breaking. After a quick breath, perform your last hang power clean and finish the round by completing 6 shoulder-to-overheads. The goal for everyone is to perform at least 5 total rounds, but can anyone get 10?

Coaching cues:

Training with dumbbells is a potent way to address muscle imbalances, requiring stabilization on each side and improving overall coordination.

Dumbbells are also a great tool to reduce the complexity of lifts like the snatch and clean for newer athletes and those with front-rack limitations.

Operation Red Wings

For time:

3/4-mile run (1,200 meters)

On June 28, 2005, an MH-47 Chinook helicopter carrying a Quick Reaction Force of eight Navy SEALs and eight Army Night Stalkers (members of the U.S. Army's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment) were killed in action during Operation Red Wings in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. This part of the operation was an attempt to rescue Lt. Michael P. Murphy, Gunner’s Mate 2nd Class Danny Dietz, Sonar Technician 2nd Class Matthew Axelson, and Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Marcus Luttrell, who had been cut off and outnumbered by Taliban fighters during a reconnaissance mission deep behind enemy lines. Three of the four SEALs on the ground were killed — Murphy, Axelson, and Dietz — with Luttrell being the lone survivor. The other eight SEALs and eight Night Stalkers were killed when the MH-47 Chinook, coming in to aid the ground team, was shot down by an enemy RPG and the helicopter broke apart, crashing down into the side of a mountain.

- ¾-mile run to commemorate the three out of four SEALs killed on the ground

- 16 rounds to commemorate the 16 service members killed during the rescue attempt

- 8 toes-to-bars to commemorate the eight Night Stalkers

- 8 burpee box jump-overs to commemorate the eight SEALs

- 47 goblet squats for the MH-47 Chinook that was lost

Scaling:
This workout is meant to be very grueling and mentally challenging. The workout begins with a ¾-mile (or 1,200-meter) run. From there, it’s a 16-round couplet of 8 toes-to-bars and 8 burpee box jump-overs. It’s a relatively small amount of work for 1 round, but it will compound over time. The redundancy will make this as much of a mental test as a physical one, so keep your head in it and find a way to keep yourself going. After the 16th round is complete, the workout finishes with 47 goblet squats. All athletes should reduce the work to a level that is attainable yet challenging.

Intermediate option:

For time:

3/4-mile run (1,200 meters)

12 rounds for time of:
6 knees-to-chest

Then,

8 rounds for time of:
6 hanging knee raises
6 burpee box step-ups

Then,

47 air squats

12-inch box
20-inch box

Coaching Cues:
The figure-4 position is key to efficient running mechanics. To continue to develop running skills, practice standing with one leg up in a figure-4 hold.

Keep your shoulders over your hips, hips over your heel, and the heel of your lifted leg in line with the knee.

From there, work on quickly switching legs and holding the figure-4 without changing your overall body position.

Take these positions into your warm-up and workout for Operation Red Wings, and notice the difference in efficiency and speed!

Today's workout is the final 2024 Service Cup workout in honor of CrossFit Kids Seminar Staff Flowmaster Kelly Brown who died on Sept. 15, 2020, after a courageous five-year battle with ovarian cancer.

This workout is a grind that rewards a consistent and steady pace. Aim to complete each round in 5 minutes or less. The load of the barbell should allow you to perform at least 3 unbroken deadlifts every time you pick it up. The prescribed load of the medicine ball has been adjusted from the original workout to make it more accessible for the Service Cup. If you are not signed up for the Service Cup, feel free to use the original load for the wall-ball shots (20/30 lb). Work hard and have fun.

Scaling:
Today's workout is the second 2024 Service Cup workout in honor of Randy Simmons, an LAPD SWAT team member who died in the line of duty on Feb. 7, 2008.

This is a fast, lightweight barbell-cycling workout similar to the benchmark workout, Isabel. Choose a load that allows you to perform at least 10 unbroken reps every time you pick up the barbell. The load should feel light (very light for some). Reduce the load so you can perform multiple reps unbroken and complete the workout in less than 8 minutes. Athletes who are less familiar with Olympic lifting should take time to drill the mechanics of the snatch and reduce the load and reps.

Today's workout is the first 2024 Service Cup workout in honor of Army Sgt. 1st Class Daniel Crabtree, who was killed in action on June 8, 2006, while serving in Al Kut, Iraq.

This workout is pyramid-style with a moderate time domain. Use a light load for the thrusters that allows you to reach proper depth and maintain sound mechanics. You should be able to complete the thrusters in no more than 3 sets and in 90 seconds or less. Scale each element as needed to start the 800-meter run by about 7 minutes into the workout, allowing for completion in under 20 minutes.

Today’s workout was created in 2005 in memory of Navy Lt. Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, New York, who was killed in Afghanistan on June 28, 2005. This workout was one of Mike’s favorites, and he’d named it “Body Armor.” It is now referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

Compare to 230529.

Scaling:
By design, most Hero workouts are meant to be extremely grueling, arduous, and mentally challenging. Many contain a very high volume of reps. Keep in mind that “challenging” is a relative term and athletes should adjust workouts to align with their physical and psychological tolerances. If you are performing Murph, partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Consider 20 sets of 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, and 15 air squats or 10 rounds of 10 pull-ups, 20 push-ups, and 30 air squats. If you have completed Murph previously, consider performing the pull-ups, push-ups, and air squats unpartitioned. Beginner athletes should reduce the work to a level that is attainable yet still challenging.

Today’s Hero workout recognizes 1st Lt. Travis Manion. This workout is long, with a high volume of running and squats. The loading of the barbell should be relatively light, but expect the volume to add up across the workout. Scale load to enable you to perform a few rounds of squats unbroken and perform all rounds in 2 sets or less. Less-experienced athletes should reduce the rounds and load to keep the workout under 40 minutes.

1st Lt. Travis Manion, 26, of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, assigned to 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, based in Camp Pendleton, California, was killed by sniper fire on April 29, 2007, while fighting against an enemy ambush in Anbar Province, Iraq.

Today's workout is in honor of Navy Lieutenant Michael McGreevy, 30, of Portville, New York, who was killed in Afghanistan on June 28, 2015. He is survived by his wife, Laura, and daughter, Molly.

Scaling:
This Hero workout is a long effort with a high volume of reps. Athletes hitting this as prescribed should aim to finish each round in 9 minutes or less. Focus on the movement you are performing on the GHD (back extension or hip extension). Most athletes deliberately scale the back extension to the hip extension to maintain intensity and achieve the stimulus of the workout. The back extension is a controlled movement with an intentional surrendering of the spine. Dose this movement judiciously. Advanced athletes may scale the volume of the back extension if they have never completed this volume. New and less-experienced athletes should consider performing hip extensions instead of back extensions, and potentially decrease the reps of each movement.

Intermediate option:
3 rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters

Scaling:
Today’s chipper is a sprint, but expect significant localized muscle fatigue. Workouts with conflicting movement patterns are a great way to build strength and stamina — you also quickly find out how many repetitions you can do before hitting failure. If you have done the Hero workout JT, you’ll understand the feeling.

The load of the barbell should be relatively light and allow you to perform the overhead squats in 3 sets or less. Reduce the volume first when scaling the GHD sit-ups, handstand push-ups, or ring muscle-ups. If you modify the muscle-ups, perform a challenging variation of a low-ring muscle-up transition.

Most Hero workouts are meant to be extremely grueling, arduous, and mentally challenging. Many contain a very high volume of reps. As we’re just coming off of the Filthy Fifty, make sure you pick a Hero workout that allows you to keep moving. Hero workouts that emphasize moderate rep ranges and time domains (10-30 reps/movement, approximately 15-20-minute range) are good choices as well.
