U.S. Marine Corps First Lieutenant James R. Zimmerman, 25, of Aroostook, Maine, assigned to 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, based in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, died on November 2, 2010, while conducting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He is survived by his wife Lynel Winters, parents Tom and Jane, sister Megan, and brother Christian.

Hero Saturday. The reps for the Pullups and the Handstand Pushups are just enough that they will start getting pretty tough to do unbroken for most people after a few rounds. We suggest that you pick a number from the start of the workout that you think you can hold each round and stick with it.  Or you can just go for it and see when you start to fatigue. The Deadlifts are heavy-ish for most people, but you should always be able to pick up the Barbell and do them unbroken.

The first 5 or so rounds will be done pretty quickly while you are fresh. After that you will start to slow down and take a few extra minutes each round. Top Performers should aim for over 12 rounds. Majority should aim for around 10.  Click the link below to watch the WOD demo!!
