9/11 Tribute WOD

2001m Row or 2001m Run 

11 Box Jumps

11 Thrusters 

11 Burpee Chest to Bar Pull-ups 

11 Power Cleans 

11 HSPUs 

11 KB Swings

11 Toes to Bar 

11 Deadlifts 

11 Push Jerks 

2001m Row  or 2001m Run

*If athletes begin the WOD with a Row, they finish with a Run and vice versa, if possible.

 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 represent 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.
