9/11 ‘UNITE, or DIE.’ PT



By Cadre Danny-Boy

On this day, we remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice on September 11th 2001. We salute you. We honor you. And we will never forget you.


  1. Understand that this will suck. Bad. It’s Pain For Pain.
  2. Work in two (2) person teams: aka find a battle buddy.
  3. Distance work (rucking and stairs) is divided by you and your partner. That means you each do half of the total distance.
  4. Complete partner exercises using a 9 & 11 rep scheme (RS). You and your partner can alternate the 9 and 11. Total repetitions combined is the goal.
  5. If you can’t do a ruck, then substitute the 2 mile partner ruck for a 2000m (2K) partner row, 2 mile partner run, or 2 mile partner sandbag carry.
  6. If you don’t have a piece of equipment, get creative with what you do have. Use your ruck, a sandbag, jump on a parking bench or a bleacher. The point is: find something to make it hurt!
  7. Lastly, this is for TIME! Meaning you should record how long it takes you and your partner finish this workout. DFQ!

So, like a good American pick a partner, and together destroy your bodies so that you can rebuild them stronger. Push your partner when they think they must stop, and always believe in a present, and a future that proves we are stronger together, in everything. God Bless America.

    This one just got added to the day’s workout, but a note that your math is wrong on the First Responders. It should be 411:

    FDNY = 343 (340 firefighters, 1 chaplain and 2 EMT)
    NYPD = 23
    Port Authority = 37
    EMTs = 8
    Total = 411
