Background: This workout is dedicated to Chicago Police Cmdr. Paul Bauer who was shot and killed in the line of duty after a chase and struggle on February 13, 2018.

Bauer, a married father of a 13-year-old daughter, was the first Chicago cop shot and killed since 2011. He was the highest-ranking officer killed in decades.

The workout was designed by Coach George Grandolfo, certified in NASM & SGX, who first posted the workout in his Facebook group, Strong As Oak.

The rep scheme signifies:
– 2 rounds for the month of death, February
– 53 Burpees for his age when Commander Bauer died
– 100 calorie for the address of the shooting
– 13 Thrusters for the date of the incident.
