*It is the athlete’s choice to run or row at the beginning, and then simply do the other at the end. Athletes use only one bar. Weight needs to be changed to match each lift.

The workout is symbolic of the US terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The 2001 meter row and run represent the year of the attacks. The 11 Reps of 9 exercises represents the date. Even the weights have meaning. The 125 lb Thrusters represents the number of deaths that occurred at the Pentagon. The 175 lb Power Clean symbolizes AA Flight 175 that hit the South Tower. The 170 lb Dead Lift is symbolic of flight 77 and Flight 93 combined. The 110 lb Push Jerks represent the number of floors in each tower of the World Trade Center buildings that were attacked.

This British Tribute WOD is dedicated to all the RLC EOD operators who expended their 9 lives and paid the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan. Among them they defused 100’s of explosive devices, saving countless lives. Gaz O’Donnel G.M., Dan Shepherd G.C., Oz Schmid G.C., Dan Read Q.G.M., Brett Linley G.M., Lisa Head. The RLC EOD left Afghanistan on the 26 October 2014.

Felix is the unofficial mascot of British Army counter-terrorism bomb disposal. Cats have always been associated with luck, possibly due to their ‘righting reflex’ – an innate ability to always land on their feet. Felix (Latin for ‘happy’ or ‘lucky’) was the name given to the popular cartoon cat created by Otto Messmer in early 1900s America. He was a cheerful, thoughtful character who never failed to survive mayhem unscathed. These are traits much coveted by bomb disposal personnel and many bomb squads worldwide adopted Messmer’s ‘Felix the Cat’ as their symbol. There have even been some conventional munitions named after him.

This “Noah” Hero WOD was created by Reservoir CrossFit (Brandon, MS). It was originally posted August 3, 2017 to honor the memory of Noah Pate, a Richland Firefighter killed in a wreck on Highway 49 (July 28, 2017). The workout was designed by former RezCF athlete and current firefighter Robert Jones, a fire academy classmate of Noah’s.

Their fire academy class was 167; hence, the buy-in and cash-out. Noah was number 23 in roll call; therefore, 23 reps for pull-ups and wall ball shots. The 21 deadlifts are from Noah’s age: 21. 1.5 miles is the total of the 3 rounds of 800 meter run which was the part of the academy’s fitness assessment. 

From the creator: “If you can put 1 pound plates on bar to make the weight of the deadlifts to 167 lb, awesome. If not, 165 lb is the closest.”

For time

*Equal work on the row. Alternate exercises each round.

Wall-ball sit-up throws are performed by one partner anchoring feet under dumbbells, and start in a half sit-up position. The other partner is standing and facing them at their feet. Standing partner tosses ball to the downed partner, who then falls back, touching their shoulders to the floor, and then raising back up to the half sit-up, simultaneously throwing ball back to standing partner.
