8 men had the pleasure of working out in the rain this morning!
The morning started with the disclaimer followed by a warm-up of arm circles, walking high knees, walking butt kickers, imperial walkers, a few slow paced mountains climbers and merkins’
The workout was in honor of D-Day!
Here is a short brief and the original workout as posted by GoRuck, we did a modified version.
On D-Day, 6 June 1944, Allied forces launched a combined naval, air and land assault on Nazi-occupied France. This year marks 77 years since D-Day, hence the 77 reps. One rep for each year to commemorate the years since D-Day.
1 Mile Ruck
77 Ruck Squats
77 Ruck Deadlifts
77 Ruck Shoulder Press
1 Mile Ruck

7 Rounds of:
- 1 lap around the OPES parking out (run, walk, or jog, just get it done)
- 11 squats
- 11 merkins’
- 11 deadlifts
- 11 overhead presses
Great workout and even BETTER weather!
