Hero WOD – "Ken Zink"

7 Rounds for Time:

71 Double Unders

14 Deadlifts (135/95)

6 Hang Power Cleans

9 Front Squats


This workout was created as a tribute (by CrossFit ASAP) for Ken Zink, San Pablo, CA Police Officer William “Ken” Zink who died in a motorcycle accident on Interstate 80 in Vallejo on September 29, 2016.

The 71 double-unders represent Zink's badge number. He served for 14 years to the US Coast Guard, hence, the 14 reps for deadlifts. 6 reps for his 6 years of service to the El Cerrito PD. Lastly, 7 rounds for Zink's 7 children.

CrossFit ASAP also hosted a fundraiser to benefit Zink's family. He had been a member of CrossFit ASAP for less than a year but he positively impacted both gym staff and its members in that short amount of time. "Zink always came to the gym with the best attitude and was ready to put in work. He was one of the friendliest people in the class and he always brightened everyone’s day. He will truly be missed."
