- AMRAP (with a Partner) in 31 minutes
- Partner A performs AMRAP of:
- 8 Thrusters (155/105 lb)
- 6 Rope Climbs (15 ft)
- 11 Box Jumps (30/24 in)
- While Partner B performs:
- 400 meter Sandbag Run (45/25 lb)
- Partners switch after each Run.
Partner A performs as many rounds and repetitions as possible (AMRAP) of the Thrusters, Rope Climbs, and Box Jumps while Partner B performs a 400 meter Run with a Sandbag. When Partner B returns from the Run, that Partner picks up on the AMRAP where Partner A left off. Partner A starts the Run. Partners switch after each Run. Mark a round after each set of 11 Box Jumps.
Score is the total number of rounds and repetitions completed before the 31-minute clock stops.
Tips & Strategy
Understanding that this is 31 minutes of continuous movement for both partners with heavier weights, odd objects, and challenging movements, it is all about just finding a way to keep moving forward. It is not about going fast, rather trying to not stop moving for the entirety of the workout. Finding one of the four movements to become the “mental rest” will better allow teams to keep going. For many athletes, this will be the box jumps, as this is the only time that they are not holding onto something under tension. For some, it may be the runs. A slower run means that the buddy with the sandbag can catch their breath a bit as the partner inside gets a little more work done. Find a pace and break-up strategy and put it on cruise control.
The workout is on the longer side, the Box is on the higher side and the weight of the Thruster is on the heavier side. Legs will fatigue from the Run and Thrusters, so consider using a shorter Box if you’re not confident with the higher box. Load the Barbell with a weight you could complete 8+ unbroken repetitions when fresh. If high volume Rope Climbs aren’t in your wheelhouse yet, substitute for Strict Pull-Ups or Ring Rows or another Rope Climb scaling option (see: Rope Climb Scaling Options).

About the wod
Background: On August 6, 2011, a tragedy shook the military community and Americans everywhere. In a single instance, America lost 30 military service members, many of whom were members of the Navy SEAL community—and one military K9—when an Extortion 17 helicopter was downed in Afghanistan.
The @31heroes workout was specifically designed to remember the fallen heroes of August 6, 2011 and honor their legacy of sacrifice.
