Strength – Deadlift
5 X 6 @RPE 7-8
*Set Every 90s
Build load over gradually over the warm up sets. If this is your first time back to training in ages take it steady and focus on moving well as your priority, remember your form dictates the load, and not the other way around!
V-Up / Tuck Crunch
*10/7 X Cals after each Set
Time Cap: 16 Mins
Move at a pace that you are able to sustain and adjust the load in order to move perfectly, do not fall into the trap of rushing the movement for the sake of it. Listen to the coach, and scale, don’t try and be a hero! Use the V-Ups and transitions to manage your breathing, and don’t forget to breathe at the top of each Thruster.

Hero WOD ‘Matthew Locke’
This Hero WOD is dedicated to Sergeant Matthew Locke, who paid the ultimate price for his country on October 25, 2007.
Locke is a recipient of the Medal for Gallantry, awarded for bravery, the third highest award in the Australian honours system. During Operation Spin Ghar, with his patrol entrusted with setting up an observation post in Tarin Kowt, Oruzgan province, the patrol was compromised by militia after a 10-hour foot infiltration up the side of a mountain.
Sergeant Locke, without regard for his own personal safety, led a two-man team to neutralize the Anti-Coalition Militia in order to protect the patrol from being overrun, and in effect repeatedly exposed himself to intense rifle and machine gun fire.
