Workout notes: The workout today is a CrossFit hero workout honoring Army Staff Sgt. Jack M. Martin III who died September 29th, 2009, in Jolo Island, Philippines.   Hero workouts are typically longer overall or harder combinations of movements than you might normally see in your average workout.  The Push Press will likely be the movement that needs the most attention during your setup.  To perform a true Push Press you drive the bar the bar up with your torso but finish with your arms. Scale appropriately to a weight with which you can perform a set of 10 during the warm up. Going unbroken isn’t required but if you are not able to do it when you are rested you may have gone too heavy.
