About the wod
Backgtround: This tribute WOD was designed as a nod to US Armed Forces Day – to “sweat as we fight for our freedom here and against oppression around the world.”
From Wikipedia: “First observed on 20 May 1950, the day was created on 31 August 1949, to honor Americans serving in the five U.S. military branches – the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard – following the consolidation of the military services in the U.S. Department of Defense. It was intended to replace the separate Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Days, but the separate days are still observed, especially within the respective services.”
“In the United States, Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May. It falls near the end of Armed Forces Week.”
This workout was designed by Coach Beaux Blackwood of GeauxFit Training @geauxfittraining (New Orleans, LA, USA) in May, 2017.
