WORKOUT BACKGROUND
Honoring Blake Marston, a fellow CrossFitter, on the 5 year anniversary of his passing
Special Warfare Operator 1st Class William Blake Marston, 31, of Concord, NH died during Navy SEAL parachute training in DeLand, Fla., Saturday, Jan. 10, 2015, at the age of 31. Marston was assigned to an East-coast based SEAL Team and served in the Navy for six years. Marston completed SEAL Training in 2009. He was a member of CrossFit Rife.

The big thing that sticks out on paper in this workout is the single heavy deadlift to start each round
This should be a weight that is a little scary and very challenging, but one that allows you to move well without failing any reps
The goal is not to go prescribed here, rather it is to lift something outside your comfort zone that is heavy for a single rep
Choose a toes to bar variation that you are capable of completing 20+ reps unbroken when fresh
You can step or jump out of the burpee, but must takeoff and land with both feet over the bar

 

**EXTRA**

7 Tempo Kettlebell Deadlifts
7 Seated Box Jumps
:30 Second Pole Prying
