Here at Embassy Baghdad we will have this community event on May 21st as a lead up to the other community events that have been planned. More information can be found at http://www.teamrwb.org/get-involved/wodwithwarriors. You're welcome to donate, register, buy a t-shirt, or just simply show up at the South Gym to join us.
As we approach Memorial Day take a moment to honor those that have given the ultimate sacrifice by joining us for a 21 gun salute inspired WOD.
A 21 Gun Salute is the Nation’s highest display of honor, appropriately reserved for our Fallen troops on Memorial Day. This WOD intends to replicate this, to honor our Nation's’ Warriors, past, present and future. The 21-minute workout and 21 repetitions signify a 21-gun salute, with an exercise for each of the five Branches of the Military.
The WOD - 21 Guns
21 minutes - as many rounds as possible (AMRAP)*
- 400 meter run
- 21 pushups
- 21 box jumps (24”/20”)
- 15 burpees
- 9 Pull-ups
* Adaptive or modified exercises can be used. If adaptations to the 21 Guns are needed, please make the adjustments as needed. The intent of WOD with Warriors and the 21 Guns WOD is to pay tribute to Memorial Day and the members of the Armed Services that have paid the ultimate price to protect our Nation and our Freedoms.
