Background: This hero workout is dedicated to Sergeant 1st Class Ryan J. Savard, US Army Special Forces, who made the ultimate sacrifice in combat on October 12, 2012, in Khanabad district, Afghanistan.

This workout was designed by Coach Shawn Louie of CrossFit Huachuca @crossfithuachuca (Sierra Vista, AZ, USA) in close cooperation with Ryan’s mom, Karen.

In an email with WODwell, CrossFit Huachuca told us that Karen is a member of their gym and asked for help in creating this workout (which Coach Louie naturally obliged).

The rep scheme signifies:
– 29 minutes for Ryan’s age when he died
– 83 for the year he was born (02/27/1983)
– 27 for the day of his birthday
– 10 for the month when he died
– 12 for the day when Ryan died
– 12 for the year when he died
– 9 for the number of years he served in the army
– 3 for the 3 Bronze Stars with Valor awarded to Ryan
– 2 for the 2 Purple Hearts awards he received
