The 125-pound Thrusters represent the deaths that occurred at the Pentagon; the 175-pound Power Clean stands for UA Flight 175 that collided with the South Tower; AA Flight 77 and UA Flight 93 were combined and are represented in the 170-pound Deadlift; and the 110-pound Push Jerk signifies the number floors in each of the Twin Towers.

Pairs will rotate every 100m. pair performing farmers carry can switch hands as they desire throughout their 100m.

-Kettlebell swings are equal work (25 each). Only one team member ™ can perform swings at a time. While tm is performing KB’s, all other tm’s will hold a low plank. KB’s can only be performed if all tm’s are in the plank position.
