“Gregg Atlas”

Hero WOD

×
  • For Time
  • 10,000 lb Cumulative Back Squats
  • 20 Burpees each time you rack the bar

Choose any weight to squat. Figure out how many reps it takes to reach 10,000 lbs and that’s your target. Re-rack the weight to rest or to change the weight. But for every re-rack, you owe a 20-burpee penalty.

This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Gregg Atlas, FDNY (New York, NY), Engine 10, who was killed on September 11, 2001.

Lt. Gregg Atlas, 44, had three brothers who were firefighters. He had joined the FDNY 20 years earlier and was assigned to Engine Co. 10 after making Lieutenant in 1994. He wasn't ready to retire because “he’d miss all the guys.”
