U.S. Army First Lieutenant Ashley White, 24, of Alliance, Ohio, assigned to the 230th Brigade Support Battalion, 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team, North Carolina National Guard, based in Goldsboro, North Carolina, died on October 22, 2011 in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, from wounds suffered when insurgents attacked her unit with an improvised explosive device. She is survived by her husband Captain Jason Stumpf, her parents Robert and Deborah, brother Josh, and sister Brittney.

Scaled version is 3 rounds. Post time to comments.

**********************************

“Active shoulders” are big in CrossFit.

Anytime you have weight overhead, you have to make sure you have an external rotation of the shoulders, which not only puts the bar in the right spot overhead, it also causes your bones to be “stacked”, creating a very stable position. Kelly Starrett and Coach B explain it well in both of these videos:

The Veterans Day Parade in downtown Forth Worth Saturday featured Grand Marshall Staff Sgt. Cody Zamaripa (aka Zombie Cody)!!

Cody steps out of the 1928 Model A he was riding in to stand at attention while holding a photograph of his best friend Sgt. Daniel Torres who was killed in Iraq. Both are from Fort Worth. The annual parade sponsored by the Tarrant County Veterans Council wound through downtown Fort Worth on Saturday November 12, 2011.

    21:52. 5 rounds. Still hurting from Angie on Friday, which is always a good sign going into a Hero workout. If you think this workout is hard, do a Mackay and do it in a gas mask like he did it this morning.
