The story behind…

CrossFit Games Director, Dave Castro posted this workout in memory of Chad, who was a friend. Castro said: “A few weeks ago we lost an American hero. A friend of mine and someone I worked with when I was in the Navy. At his funeral his wife mentioned that he did 1000 step ups for time with a 45 pound pack on a 20” box to train for climbing Mt Aconcagua.
