This Hero WOD is dedicated to Deputy Sheriff Peter Herrera of El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, Texas, who succumbed on March 24, 2019 to wounds sustained when he was shot three days earlier after pulling over a vehicle. Deputy Herrera had served with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office for 11 years. He is survived by his wife.
This workout was created by Joseph and Michael Cowley, owners of Aesthetic Freaks (@af_nutrition_) in El Paso, Texas, where the workout was first performed as a memorial event a few days following Deputy Herrera’s passing. Joseph said, “Myself and some of our clients are officers down here. We may be in different departments but we are all family.”
