These are the names of many of the victims of 9/11. We will never forget!



9/11 Memorial WOD

2001m Row/Run

11 Thrusters (125/85)

11 Burpee Chest-2-Bar Pull-ups

11 Power Cleans (175/120)

11 Handstand Push-ups

11 Kettlebell Swings (72/53)

11 Toes-2-Bar

11 Deadlifts (170/120)

11 Push Jerks (110/75)

2001m Run/Row*


For Time

*If an athlete runs at the beginning, they row at the end, and vice versa. If you have a vest, wear it (20/14).

The workout symbolizes the events that unfolded on September 11, 2001, in its design. The date and year are represented by the row (i.e. 2001 meters) and the 9 movements, each including 11 repetitions. 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.



Saddle Sit – 2:00

Elevated Cat – 1:30

Low Dragon – 1:30/side

Child’s Pose w/ shoulders – 2:00



Post time and experiences to comments


  1. 31:44, 75# thruster, 95# clean
    Should have gone heavier and vested due to being a memorial WOD.

    40 and some change
    RX body weight movements
    Would have liked to have gone heavier but my SI joint is bugging me after the front squats last week.

    32:58. Rx with row then run. Next time go run then row. Glad we did this Memorial Wod. Chipper sandwiches are always tough but this was very appropriate and thought out by HQ.

  4. 41:01
    Thrusters- 83#
    PCs- 85#
    DL’s- 143# (i didn’t read the board… like an idiot… this is where I lost a good minute and a half…)
    PJ’s – 73#

    Next time I’d like to switch row/run – I’m terrible at rowing, probably would’ve given up without Darren pushing me to keep pulling it.

  5. 30:33 Rx+
    Vested, 175# DL, 115# PJ

    Exhausting WOD!! Thoughts and prayers to the families that were directly affected on this day in 2001. We will never forget.

  6. 34:17 Rx (Run 1st)
    Used 115 lbs for Push Jerk

  7. CourtnieMcKone says

    45:50 Rx+
    Ran first, 85# push jerk
    Those hspus ate my lunch. I spent forever on them and had about 100 no reps.

  8. 47:07, only mod was HSPU strict to 2 ab mats. Counting my belly as my 20# weighted vest 😉
    Proud of myself for pushing through this at Rx weights at 28.5 weeks pregnant. Even though this was a tough wod, I liked it and the meaning behind it.

  9. 37:05 Rx ran then rowed. Glad I ran first

  10. 35:18
    Ran 1st
    110# power clean
    Hspu on abmat
    45# KB
    110# DL (should have done 120#)

  11. darrenandtara says

    38:11 Rx rowed then run. Run was vested.
