COMPETITORS 9.7.15

September 06, 2015

It was a time of devastation and something we thought would never happen. Sept 11,2001 was just a typical day. People woke woke up had their coffee and went off to work. Not far into morning terrorist hit the twin towers changing lives of hundreds of thousands of people. This is a day we never want to witness ever again and today we honor our fallen, we honor the lives that were changed and we honor Anerica. Have fun today and keep the families and the unfortunate ones who did not make it in your hearts.

The workout itself is completely symbolic of 9/11. The 2001 meter row represents the year the attack took place. The 11 reps of 9 exercises represents the date (9/11). Even the weights have meaning.

The 125 pound thrusters represents the number of deaths that occurred at the Pentagon. The 175 pound power clean symbolizes the AA Flight 175 that hit the South Tower. The 170 pound deadlift is symbolic of Flight 77 and Flight 93 combined. And the 110 pound push jerk represents the number of floors in each tower of the World Trade Center.

The 9/11 Memorial Day Workout was created last year to honor the 10th anniversary of the attack and to raise funds for the Disposable Heroes Project.
