Recently, I have been doing Hero workouts during Sundays. They are fun, challenging and always have a twist somewhere in the workout. Today – 7/5/2015, after the July 4th weekend, I definitely needed a good work out.
Holbrook Hero WOD
10 rounds for time:
5 thrusters at 115 lbs (Ladies – 75 pounds)
Rest for 1 minute
In memory of US Army Captain Jason Holbrook, 28, of Burnet, TX, assigned to 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne), based out of Fort Bragg, NC, was killed on July 29th, 2010 in Tsagay, Afghanistan when insurgents attacked his vehicle with an improvised explosive device.
He is survived by his wife Heather Holbrook and his parents Joan and James Holbrook.
I finished the workout in 27:50 minutes, averaging about a 1:40 minutes round. Pullups are my nemesis. In fact, I loved the thrusters and that was a breeze for the entire workout
- Pros of this workout – Built in rest after every round.
- Cons of this work out – You can push yourself really hard knowing that there is a rest at the end of the round. 10 rounds do get boring after a while. Luckily it is not 20 or even 30 like Holleyman.
I find this work out like Fran, Fran with a run in it. Every round can be pushed and it is just a really cool and fun workout that I enjoyed!
