HERO Workouts Of the Day’s are meant to be tough, and test your physical and technical ability.
Brett loved running, reflected in the 400m sprints. Brett loved standard lifts and repetitions, which you’ll discover in SDHP, and thrusters.
When it comes to the burpee box jumps, well, this is a lung and leg buster, and that is something Commandos and Soldiers alike endure in training and on operations.
The rest is for consolidation, reflecting on what has been and what is about to happen.
Australian Army Sergeant Brett Wood, 32, of Ferntree Gully, Victoria, assigned to the 2nd Commando Regiment, based in Sydney, New South Wales, died on May 23, 2011, in Helmand province, Afghanistan, after insurgents attacked him with an improvised explosive device. He is survived by his wife Elvi, his mother Allison, and his father David.
