CrossFit often pays tribute to fallen solders with “hero” workouts. “DT” honors United States Air Force Staff Sergeant Timothy P. Davis, who was killed by an IED in Afghanistan on Feb. 20, 2009, while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.
As with many CrossFit workouts, DT doesn’t appear too difficult. It’s composed of three exercises—the deadlift, hang power clean, and push-press. It starts with 12 reps of the deadlift, followed by 9 reps of the power hang clean, and finishes with 6 reps of the push-press, and is repeated as a circuit for 5 total rounds. The sequence of movements is part of what makes it so difficult. The workout takes you from pull to push, from power lift to Olympic lifts, targeting the metabolic pathways that are the route to increased athletic performance. #goodluck
