Background: EOD stands for Explosive Ordnance Disposal, or, the disarming and disposal of bombs. EOD technicians are highly-trained US military members serving in the Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force and they are responsible for disarming, rendering safe and disposing of bombs.

The EOD profession is one of the most dangerous occupations in the military.

The workout, to be completed as a 2-person team, consists of 4 couplets - separated by burpees - to represent
each of the four branches of service. Each couplet has two exercises totaling 130 reps, one rep for each of the fallen EOD service members from 9/11/2001 until the date when this workout was first published.

Some gyms change the reps in the workout each year to reflect the most recent number of EOD techs lost (136 reps in 2019 from @crossfitwestgeist).

The 16 partner-over burpees signify the 'dreaded 16-point hit' at EOD School. According to a post by the Air Force, every student at EOD School must pass each test with an 85%. A '16-point hit' (meaning 84%) is a major error that results in an instant failure.

This workout was designed by the EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF), which serves the EOD community by providing financial assistance and support to active-duty and veteran, wounded, injured or ill EOD warriors. The foundation also supports the families of wounded and fallen EOD warriors and by maintaining the EOD Memorial.
