Today will mark our last hero workout for awhile! Sad I know! The reason is because next week will be a deload week. After that week we will have a 5-6 week cycle where on Friday’s we are doing open-style workouts. This is just to prep us for the open that is coming the last week of February! Hopefully by getting a taste of open-style workouts on Friday’s your body will be ready to smoke the open! After the open hopefully we can bring the hero workouts back for you guys! It will be close to summer and maybe you don’t know but they love to run in hero workouts! So finding stuff we can do in the winter has been rough, but we did it!
Today to end it will be a little different then we’ve done in the past. This one will be done partner style. They don’t have many out there, but this is one of them. This is also a not as well known hero workout as well. I don’t believe crossfit.com has done this but quite a few other people have. Either way the goal is the same. Hit it hard, have some fun, and remember why we’re doing the hero workouts. Find a good buddy to hit this bad boy with! It will be the last one for awhile, embrace the suck, push hard and finish strong!

**Sergeant (SGT) Alexander Van Aalten, 21, of the Cumberland Cove community near Monterey, Tennessee, died during combat operations in Afghanistan on Friday, April 20, 2007. SGT Alex Van Aalten volunteered for a mission to rescue a Dutch Soldier stuck in a minefield. That morning as he attempted to rescue a Dutch Corporal, Cor Strik, a land mine required his last full measure.
SGT Alex Van Aalten was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, and the Netherlands Decoration of Merit of the Minister of Defense in Gold. He is buried in Section 60 of the Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VA, next to the Pentagon.
