Plyo: What’s going on right now?

Amazing work this weekend for our Memorial Day Weekend Three-Hero Series! Those of you who came out for 1, 2,  Screen Shot 2014-05-26 at 9.36.02 PMor all 3 of our Hero WODs did some fantastic work honoring those who gave their lives in service of our country. A special shout out to those of you who finished when you didn’t think you could, who used the prescribed weight even though it made the workout nearly impossible, and who wore a weighted vest for four miles of running plus squat cleans, box jumps, and weighted lunges for “Hidalgo” on Monday.  For coverage with video and photos from Sunday’s WOD which honored Chris Wrinkle, check out John Pavoncello’s report for the York Dispatch.  A special thanks to Lindsay and Michal, who shouldered the bulk of the coaching this weekend. All in all, they wrangled a total of 91 athlete workouts over three days.
