Background: This workout was designed by Brad Swanson of PFC CrossFit @pfc_crossfit (Las Vegas, NV) to commemorate the devastating shooting incident that left 58 dead and hundreds wounded at Route 91 Harvest Outdoor Music Festival on the Las Vegas Strip on October 1, 2017. The gunman opened fire on the crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel during the closing performance by Jason Aldean.

The repetition scheme represents the date and the victims of the incident: 17 AMRAP for the year, 10 ground-to-overheads for the month, 1 partner carry for the day, and 58 burpees for the victims who died.

In 2020, during the COVID pandemic, to give athletes a way to honor the victims while maintaining social distancing, Swanson designed a modified solo version of the workout. The 91 Double-Unders in that version represent the Route 91 festival.
