“Hands of a 65 Year Old Surgeon”

complete 2 rounds for time of:

400m run

20 pull ups

22 KBS 20kg/16kg

23 DL 135/95

This WOD is to honor Howard Miller who turns 65 today!

Howard is a highly skilled surgeon who uses his hands to help and heal others. All movements in this WOD require great hand strength, which he clearly possesses.

The WOD consists of 2 rounds; each round represents his two daughters who Howard helped bring into this world.

The 400m run in each round represents Howard’s wonderful wife who has always stood by him and even run beside him hand in hand on their life long journey.

The rep scheme of each round equals 65, displaying the young age Howard has reached.

Happy Birthday and God Bless Howard, His Family, and CrossFit Huntsville.

Train Hard, Train Smart, Train to Survive!
