“21 Guns – A Memorial Day Salute”

Partner 1:

21 pull-ups

21 burpee box jumps 20″

21 firemans carry back squats

21 burpee box jumps 20″

21 pull-ups

Partner 2 executes

Partner 1 again

Partner 2 again


The 21 reps signify a 21 gun salute, and the 5 exercises are one for each branch of the Military. Executing with a partner signifies the bonds Team Red White & Blue aims to create between our Nation’s Warriors and the communities they grow in and return to, and doing it twice reflects the fact that we honor both the living and the deceased. 


Our goals for the WOD and the weekend:

1.  Help people remember and observe Memorial Day in a respectful, reflecting, meaningful way.

2.  Create a window of opportunity to improve communication between Communities and their Veterans to foster understanding.  Ideally, this means finding a Team Red, White, and Blue chapter in your community, and seeking Veterans out to come WOD with you this Memorial Day Weekend.

3.  Use this shared experience to build bonds that are restorative to Veterans and their communities.


Make this Memorial Day a meaningful and memorable one by living up to the charge of the day: dedicate a piece of it to those who fought and gave all on our behalf!  
*REMINDER*  There will only be one class today at 9am. BBOLC and Running & Endurance classes are cancelled.
