EOD-130 Memorial WOD ! .

Hey !!

Happy Veterans Day to everyone who has served or is serving in the military. As a military wife I am honored and blessed to be a part of the Air Force community of people and it's an honor to have many people who have the common goal of protecting our country. Today I was able to be a part of an EOD-130 memorial WOD that we held at our box,  Fitness Heroics. The EOD 130 Memorial Workout is in honor of the 130 EOD Technicians in the Navy, Army, Marine Corps and Air Force who have made the ultimate sacrifice since 9/11. All proceeds benefit the EOD Warrior Foundation non-profit organization.

The workout is to be completed as a 2-Man EOD Team, consisting of 4 couplets to represent each of the services.  Each couplet has two exercises totaling 130 reps, one rep for each of the fallen.  After each couplet there are 16 partner over burpees as a throwback to the dreaded 16 point hit at EOD School.  

The workout was as follows :
65 front squats 
65 kettebell swings
16 Over the person burpee
65 hang cleans
65 shoulder to overhead with kettlebell
16 Over the person burpee
64 pull ups 
64 box jumps
16 over the person burpee
64 hand release push ups
64 bent over rows
16 over the person burpee

I was lucky enough to do this workout with a friend who is in the Air Force and we finished it in 21:41 using 75# barbell for all movements. 

The EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF) serves the EOD community by providing financial assistance and support to active-duty and veteran wounded, injured or ill EOD warriors, families of our wounded and fallen EOD warriors and by maintaining the EOD Memorial.

The foundation offers four pillars of support and handles each request on a case-by case basis. The immediate and ongoing assistance and resources provided by the foundation to those in the EOD community are intended to provide support above and beyond the budgetary constraints of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
II.   Education
III.  Hope and Wellness
IV.  EOD Memorial Care



I.    Emergency Financial Relief

Our support includes financial assistance and additional services such as morale events, peer-to-peer support, educational programs, connections to resources and sustained contact with our EOD warriors and their families.
The foundation believes that the EOD family is for life. Our ongoing mission is to disarm the challenges of the EOD family by providing our support with compassion and caring to every individual we serve.
The EOD Warrior Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that was established through the March 1, 2013 merger of the EOD Memorial Foundation and the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation to streamline and increase our capacity to support the EOD community.

Please take part in some of the amazing events to support our troops who are there protecting us every day !
