Air Force Staff Sgt. David “Sham” Wieger, 28, of North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, a special agent for the Air Force of Special Investigations, Detachment 303, Travis Air Force Base, California, died Nov. 1, 2007, near Balad Air Base, Iraq, of wounds sustained from an improvised explosive device that struck his vehicle. Wieger is survived by his parents, Michael and Loreene; brother, Michael; sister-in-law, Brenda; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.


We hope you’ve been enjoying the hero WODs we’ve been throwing your way. Today you have another one named after David “Sham” Wieger. Not much to this WOD, some body weight deadlifts and a sprint. However that combination can be potent, especially if you push the unbroken reps on the deadlift and hit the run hard. One thing we want you to be aware of is that these deadifts can accumulate quickly. Understand where you’re at with your training and your ability with 77 deadlifts at that weight. For some of you it will be no problem. However, if the heaviest deadlift you’ve pulled before is near today’s RX weight, it would be a very smart choice to lower the load. It can be tempting to go heavier to hit that RX, but that will come in time. Do the right thing today and if you’re unsure, ask a coach, that’s why we’re here!! Have fun honoring Sham today!
