- 3 Rounds for Time
- 29 Push-Ups
- 6 Hang Power Cleans (50/35 kg)

- 29 Pull-Ups
- 6 Overhead Squats (50/35 kg)

Push-ups are to CrossFit standard, meaning they start in the top position, with both elbows fully locked out, then down such that the chest and thighs touch the floor, then back up to fully locked out position.
At the time of his death, Dixon was providing close protection to US Army Engineers when a large IED detonated beneath his vehicle.
Despite having recently left the British Army where he served in The Royal Green Jackets for over 10 years, Dixon had returned to Iraq as a contractor to support reconstruction efforts.
He is survived by his wife Sarah, children Caitlin and Niall, and extended family.
We first found this as the workout of the day for November 9, 2014 as part of CrossFit Essex' @cfessex Broadsword Barbell @broadswordbarbell WODvember catalog.
