A couple of Friday’s ago, we attempted the Hero WOD “DT.” It is an all barbell WOD that requires proficiency in the deadlift, hang power clean, and jerk. “Rankel” is another Hero WOD from CrossFit, but is completely different. Rankel combines weighted movements, body weight movements, and a short sprint. We will also do a movement today that we don’t do often, burpee pullups. Find a pullup bar that is about 6 inches above your standing reach.
U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant John Rankel, 23, of Speedway, Indiana, assigned to 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, 1 Marine Expeditionary Force, based out of Camp Pendleton, California, was killed on June 7, 2010, while supporting combat operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He is survived by mother and stepfather Don and Trisha Stockhoff; father and stepmother, Kevin and Kim Rankel; and brothers Nathan Stockhoff and Tyler Rankel.
Finally, today is the end of our Push Presses. Make sure you don’t miss max effort. Also, be sure to record your heaviest lift. We will be working on a percentage of that number in a few weeks.
