According to Manion’s sister, Ryan, the workout is comprised of some of her brother’s favorite exercises. "This WOD was very deliberate in the way it was put together." She serves as president of the Travis Manion Foundation, which provides resources for veterans and hosts community service projects. “My brother was a wrestler at the Naval Academy and had very strong legs, so this WOD is all dedicated to legs,” she says.
