Good Afternoon CFTP!

This Week's Programming

This week is going to be a bit different. We are going to take a week off from the strength cycle and implement a full week of Hero Workouts. These Hero workouts are longer and more challenging so in order to have enough time to finish them, we will be doing the workout only this week. We may throw in some cashouts if time permits.

Hero workouts are special as they are designed and named after a fallen Hero. They come in many forms and from all over the world. This week I selected Heroes from the United States Military in remembrance of those who have fallen protecting this great country. With celebrating Independence Day, let's not forget those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

These workouts will be a grind but take a look at the Chalk it app and you will see where I have leveled them out so we can all have a workout that is challenging but doable.

Run 1,200 meters
Then, 4 rounds of:
  12 strict pull-ups
