CrossFit Manayunk – CrossFit
Captain Tom (Time)
10 Rounds of:
4 Devil Presses (2×50/35 lb)
19 Air Squats
This tribute workout is dedicated to Captain Tom Moore, a World War II veteran who raised over £26 million through a fundraiser he established to support the UK’s National Health Service charities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 99-year-old veteran vowed to keep walking laps of his garden in the Bedfordshire Village of Marston Moretaine in order to raise money for the fight against the novel coronavirus.
His goal: reach 100 laps before his 100th birthday on April 30, 2020. He met that goal 2 weeks early, and he dramatically blew his £1K fundraising goal out of the water.
This workout was designed by Espirit de Corps CrossFit @edc_crossfit_ (UK) in Captain Tom’s honor.
The rep scheme signifies:
– 10 rounds for the number of laps he did each day
– 30-4-19-20 reps for his date of birth on April 30, 1920
– 100 Burpees for his age on his upcoming birthday.
