About the wod
Background: This workout represents the “sacrifice that medical, public safety, scientists, and all essential workers are making to keep the world safe and the constant work our doctors and nurses face. Often, they cannot take a break – so in this workout, we will not take a break and continue to march on when the dumbbell work is complete.”
The tribute was designed and submitted to WODwell by Allie Wetzel and reviewed and validated by Coach Amanda Street of CrossFit Shoofly @crossfit_shoofly (North Carolina, USA).
