Workout of the Day 131111

To our 949 active-military family, today we honor you. You have our deepest gratitude for your courage, bravery, and service as you have given up a large portion of your lives to protect ours. In honor of Veteran’s Day 2013, from the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank all those who have fallen in the line of duty and also those that have previously or are currently serving to protect the citizens of the United States of America and our freedom.  In honor of today we are participating in a workout created by WOD For Warriors.  Please join us in this workout to bring awareness and connection for our own community to our nation’s Veterans!

“On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War.  This Armistice Day was later re-named to Veterans Day.

At exactly 11 a.m., each November 11th, a color guard, made up of members from each of the military branches, renders honors to America’s war dead during a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery.

– The 11 minutes of work and the 11-based rep scheme represents the rich history of Veteran’s Day.

– The two-minutes of rest/reflection represents this moment of silence at the tomb of the unknowns.

– The 1st round of work represents Veterans of wars past, and the 2nd round of work represents Veterans of present and future wars.

– Modified versions of classic military exercises are meant to help connect Veterans and the greater community to connect after the accomplishment of shared hardship during this WOD.”
