Impact/Focus: Turkish Get-ups
Warm up as needed before completing the following workload for 6 total rounds, climbing in weight as able.

6 Rounds of
Odd Minutes: Turkish Get-up (Left Arm) x 1 rep

Notes: Athletes should plan to increase weight as able across sets, should a maximum weight be achieved prior to the final round and the execution is resilient then consider adding an additional repetition per round proceeding. Directions for clock management would be work for :45 seconds of each interval and leaving :15 for transition time to the other arm and recovering.

In honor of Chief Petty Officer Nate Hardy, who was killed Sunday February 4, 2008 during combat operations in Iraq. Nate is survived by his wife, Mindi, and his infant son Parker.

It was Hardy’s fourth deployment in Iraq, according to his father, Stephen Hardy, a professor of kinesiology. His mother, Donna Hardy, is an administrative assistant in University of New Hampshire’s (UNH) psychology department.

Nate joined the Navy after graduating from highschool. “Our hearts go out to Steve and Donna Hardy, and their son, Ben, at this incredibly difficult time,” UNH President Mark Huddleston said in a statement. “We know it was Nate’s dream to become a U.S. Navy SEAL when he graduated from high school, and he pursued that dream and excelled at it. His death has stunned all who knew him, and all who know his parents, who both are so much a part of the UNH community.”

The “Nate” Hero WOD was first posted on the CrossFit Main Site as the workout of the day for Tuesday, February 12, 2008 (080212).

Warm-up Drills

II. 2-3 Rounds of
*Technique review/Barbell Complex
III. Mobility
Notes: The barbell movement review and complex’s assigned will be specific to the benchmark being tested by the individual athlete.

30 x Snatches for time
OR
Grace
30 x Clean and Jerks for time

Notes: Isabel and Grace are two of the fastest CrossFit benchmark workouts. Reduce the load so you can perform multiple reps unbroken and complete all the reps within a target time of 5-7 minutes. Athletes less familiar with Olympic lifting should take time to drill the mechanics of each movement and reduce the load drastically.

“There has never been a philosophy, a theory or a doctrine that attacked, or limited, reason which did not also preach submission to the power of some authority. Philosophically, most do not understand the issue to this day; but they have sensed it since prehistoric times. Observe the nature of mankind’s earliest legends—such as the fall of Lucifer … for the sin of defying authority.
Or the story of Prometheus, who taught men the practical arts of survival.
Power-seekers have always known that if men are to be made submissive, the obstacle is not their feelings, their wishes or their “instincts,” but their minds; if [people] are to be ruled, then the enemy is reason.”—Ayn Rand

“Open Workout 18.2 & 18.2a”

Time cap: 12 minutes to complete 18.2 AND 18.2a

Workout 18.2

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 reps for time of:
Dumbbell squats (50/35)
Bar-facing burpees

Workout 18.2a

1-rep-max clean

NOTES:

Scaling: Scaled athletes should complete 18.2 against a 9:00 clock. This will ensure they are able to make attempts at a clean & jerk in the remaining time to post as score for 18.2. Should there not be enough dumbbells for the class. Optional front squats with the barbell should be completed at 95/65 pounds respectively.

If the athlete completes all the squats and burpees before the 12-minute cap, he or she will use the remaining time to complete Workout 18.2a, a 1-rep-max clean. The clean must be performed with a barbell, and the plates must be secured with collars. The athlete may complete as many attempts as he or she likes until the time cap is up but will only receive credit for the heaviest successful lift. Plates smaller than 1⁄2 lb. may not be used, and the minimum weight increase will be 1 pound.

Post times for 18.2 and weight completed for 18.2a to comments.
