Rx. We train under the RX mural every day, but what exactly does that phrase mean? At Riverside Health Club, RX usually refers to our Riverside Extreme program, but in the world of CrossFit it's something different entirely. In CrossFit, Rx is a prescription. It's meant to emulate a doctor's prescription, only in this case it's an exercise prescription. The exercise prescriptions on named girl WODs and hero WODs are meant for advanced athletes, so they can be very difficult for most people to take on. In today's workout, for example, we didn't have anyone use the Rx'd weights, but this hero WOD was still very challenging for everyone.
"Hammer" is named after U.S. Army First Sergeant Michael "Hammer" Bordelon. Bordelon was originally from Louisiana, but he worked out of Fort Lewis, Washington, as a member of the Striker Brigade Combat Team. He died in Iraq on May 10th, 2005 as the result of a car bomb explosion near Mosul. We call these men heroes because we admire them for their courage.
