Welcome to Week 3, Day 5 of the EBOOST Fitness Holiday Challenge!
Each week we are challenging you to focus on your health and fitness for all 7 days each week, including five days of workouts, one full rest day, and one active rest day. This is by no means a strict plan you need to follow. If you have a current workout routine that you are loving feel free to keep at it because you can still participate in our challenge with the chance to win prizes by posting your images on Instagram and tagging @EBOOST, #eboost, and #fitnessholidaychallenge. Each post is an entry into a chance at winning one of our prizes–Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4, EBOOST gift cards and more! To see the full list of prizes, please check out our Fitness Holiday Challenge Overview blog post.
We will also be sharing recipes each week too to keep you inspired in the kitchen! Now grab your POW and let’s get ready to sweat!
Sore, the most satisfying pain.
Week 3 Day 5: Whole Body
For today’s workout in our Fitness Holiday Challenge, we are taking a workout from Crossfit. This workout does not mess around. This workout, or WOD (in Crossfit terms) is a Hero WOD. Hero WODs are different than normal Crossfit WODs
Hero WODs are named for soldiers who lost their lives in the line of duty. They died helping others. They sacrificed for their team and for their country. They lived their lives serving others and personified the idea of “community” that CrossFitters are always preaching.
Hero WODs are designed to be super challenging. The idea is to not focus on how much the workout sucks but to think of how much that Hero would love to be by your side pushing you through. They are something at the very least that can be done to honor their courage and strength.
This Hero WOD will take you a good hour to complete, but don’t worry if you don’t have that much time or think it looks straight uo crazy, because we have modifications to share as well. What is super awesome about this workout though, is that you can do this workout practically anywhere.
Crossfit Total Body Workout

Modifications: Do fewer reps, like cutting all of the reps in half or shaving off 50 from each exercise. You can also just run at the beginning, after the squats, and at the end.
We certainly want you to modify this workout to your level. We are not encouraging you to push past your limits to where you need medical assistance or feel faint, etc. Please know yourself and know your limits when attempting this workout.
Way to still be killin’ it! We are almost 3/4 of the way through the challenge. Now don’t forget to share your pictures on Instagram so we can see how you’ve boosted your fitness goals today!
