About the wod
Background: This memorial workout is dedicated to Richard “Richie” Neindorf who passed away after a two-year battle with cancer on August 13, 2019.
We first found this workout posted by CrossFit 604 @crossfit604 (Vancouver, BC, Canada), who confirmed that “Richie” was designed in part by Head Coach Tom Highmore.
In an email with Tom, he told us that Richie was not only his roommate but also his best friend and that the workout was created by himself, another of Richie’s best friends Kolby Bland and Richie’s sister Georgia Neindorf.
In explaining the workout, Tom told us:
“A) 10 mins to build to a heavy snatch single (Richie was a fantastic weightlifter, with the snatch being his best lift, so we had to include that!)
B) 30 min AMRAP:
30 burpees over bar
9 clean and jerks
19 chest to bar pull-ups
88 air squats
30 min AMRAP as he passed away at 30 years old, and his date of birth was 30th of September, 1988 (30/9/1988).
“The movements were selected based on some of his favorite and least favorites. It’s a partner workout because he loved a good partner WOD, and was always the first person to cheer somebody on who hadn’t finished their workout yet – he epitomized CrossFit community spirit.”
