Workout of the Week
Hero Workout

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury.  Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion such as the one below.  Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds.

It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.

Workout
“Hero Workouts” were created to honor the fallen military hero that each workout is named after. The three chosen Hero Workouts here are all simple bodyweight workouts, but may be done with additional weight like a backpack. The exercises are meant to be performed as quickly as possible with good form, taking rests as needed. Modifications are shown for each exercise, but you may also adjust the number of repetitions for any given exercise.
Choose one of the three listed Hero workouts to do.
