Background: This Memorial workout is in memory of Carlos Tovar who was killed in a tragic boating accident at the age of 41 on June 23, 2018.

We first found this workout posted by CrossFit Livermore (CFL) @cf_livermore (Livermore, CA, USA), where they wrote: “His birthday was on May 18. Hence, the rep scheme for the cleans and double-unders. When he worked out, he would often do interval work – sprint, rest, sprint, then rest again. It was “his style” of AMRAP. He also loved heavy clean-and-jerks.”

After contacting CFL, they confirmed that Carlos was a CFL member and this workout was created by CFL owner and head coach Matt.

In his response Matt told us:

“Carlos would often speed through parts of the workout and then just stand over the chalk bucket and rest for 20 seconds then speed through it then rest haha we always gave him crap for it so that’s why the 20 seconds rest was in there and he was a big strong dude that love to max out lifts, so that’s why we choose the clean and jerk at the end. Those are all his favorite movements as well. ”
