Background: “Bad Ass Angel” is a Memorial WOD for Amanda Strous, 27, who, in the early evening of Saturday, June 18th, 2016, died in a fire at her apartment complex in Charlotte, North Carolina. She suffered blunt force injuries and strangulation in addition to burns. A neighbor was arrested in Nevada and charged with first-degree arson and murder. Amanda and her fiance, Cory, were to be married the next week.

CrossFit Pineville @crossfitpineville (Pineville, NC, USA), where she was a regular and Cory was a coach, created this workout and the “Fly High 22” WOD in her honor.

This is an Rx+ take on “Fly High 22,” which was the original partner memorial WOD. “Bad Ass Angel” makes the partner workout a solo workout and adds in the CrossFit benchmark WOD “Amanda.”

Cory shared this more advanced take in 2017, a year after the original workout was released.
