ABOUT THE EVENT
René “Hero WOD” On the 3rd of January 2015. All CrossFit Boxes – and anyone else interested in participating – are invited to run the first Danish Hero WOD.
The WOD is in honor of Sergeant René Brink Jakobsen, (special forces).
The WOD is developed in close collaboration with a colleague who was with him on the night he lost his life on January 3rd 2013. The WOD is put together to represent René in the best way.
Hero WOD René
7 rounds for time: – 400 meter run – 21 Lunges – 15 Pull-up – 9 Burpees performed if possible with a weight vest 10 kg (military). As always the WOD can be scaled, for example, without the weight vest.
The symbolism is as follows: 7 rounds because it was on the Task Force 7 he lost his life. – Running, because he trained this the most. – Lunges, because he knelt down on an IED (improvised explosive device). – Pull-up, because he trained it a lot. – Burpees, because it is a king exercise!
It makes us so proud that 33 boxes in Denmark, and even one in Greenland, are joining the event “René” at the moment.
