The 4 rounds represents the 4 planes.

The 9 rope climbs represents the month.

The 11 bear complexes represent the day.

The 2977 meter row represents the lives lost

GENERAL

We’ll grab a buddy and work hard for those who lost their lives 18 years ago today This is a longer workout that takes between 35-45 minutes to complete Teammates can split up the work however they see fit

ROWS The Buy-In and Cash-Out rows only happen once After completing the 2011 meter row, partners will work through the four rounds of rope climbs and bear complexes before finishing with the 2977 meter row

BEAR COMPLEX 1 Bear Complex: 1 Power Clean + 1 Front Squat + 1 Push Press + 1 Back Squat + 1 Back Rack Push Press The limiting factor on the barbell will likely be the push press or back rack push press Choose a weight that you could complete 20+ push presses unbroken when fresh If teammates are using different weights, it’s ok to use 2 barbells
