5 Rounds of
10 x Thrusters (75/55lbs)

Notes: Use bumper plates for the Devil’s Press (ie. Burpee Pick-ups), the repetition begins standing over the bumper plate, the athlete executes a burpee with hands supported on the weight plate for the pushup. When returning to the standing position the bumper plate from the ground to hip and subsequently overhead to arms fully extended. Athletes may utilize either a snatch style or a pull-push ‘clean’ style method to hoist the weight overhead at the end ROM (range of motion) for each repetition. Scaling for Ring Dips will be 1:1 for subbing in box/bench dips or static dips (use of bands is only for static dip progressions, not ring work). Scale load and heigh accordingly for the Thrusters and Box Jumps, respectively.
By all means, get some, freaks.

About Sgt. Sean Henry Miles:

“No greater love than he who lays down his life for his friends.”

Sean Henry Miles was born in New York, and though he was raised in Virginia, always considered himself a New Yorker.

Sean was the type of Marine that is the backbone of the military. He was the type of man that few men can be, but that most spend their lives trying to become. Self-sacrifice came second nature to Sean, and he spent his life not only knowing right and wrong, but defending and protecting his fellow man, all the way to the very end.

When his unit began to fall under attack, he saw one of his Marines pinned down and panicking. Sean selflessly and instinctively pushed him to safety, but exposed himself to enemy fire in the process.

Sean has made his mark in this world, in so many ways, and his memory and legacy live on in his family, his son, his friends, his fellow Marines, and even those who simply hear about the life that he led.

Sergeant Sean Miles was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star with V for Valor for his bravery and courage.

Article Excerpt Describing Sgt Miles:

Camp Lejeune Marine killed in Iraq
CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — A Camp Lejeune Marine was killed in Iraq while conducting combat operations, the military said Wednesday.
Sgt. Sean H. Miles, 28, of Midlothian, Va., was killed in action Tuesday from small arms fire while conducting combat operations against enemy forces in Karmah, Iraq, 50 miles west of Baghdad, the Defense Department said.

Miles was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force. He was in his first tour in Iraq, his family said.

Miles’ grandmother, Lois Miles of Richmond, said the family was told Miles was killed when he went to the aid of one of his men who was lagging behind the rest of their unit.

“That’s exactly what he would do,” she told the Richmond Times-Dispatch for a story to be published Thursday. “He said he wasn’t going to lose any of his men.”

Sean Miles always wanted to be a Marine and enlisted after graduating from Clover Hill High School in suburban Richmond, where he played football, his grandmother said.

“He was a Marine from the top of his head to the soles of his feet,” she told the newspaper, adding that he was scheduled to return to Camp Lejeune next month.

Miles is survived by his parents, Michael and Deborah Miles of Richmond, his wife, Genevieve, and their son, Tyler, 2, his grandmother said.
