This year on Friday 4/19, at 9:00am, as part of our observance of Easter, we will take a moment to reflect on the pain and suffering Jesus experienced when He laid down His life in an act of sacrificial love for the human race.
Gyms and FAITH RXD Chapters around the world host the Passion WOD on Easter Weekend, most of them on Good Friday.
Every year, the workout is the same:
- 100 Double Unders- to remind us of the lashings he received by a whip with shards of bone and metal that ripped his back.
- 800m Barbell Carry (95/65)- to symbolize Jesus carrying his own crossbar to his execution site as he took the weight of our sin upon himself.
- 100 Burpees- to signify him conquering death by rising again.
Invite your friends and join your local gym or FAITH RXD chapter to participate in the most meaningful workout you’ll do all year.
“He was pierced because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on Him, and we are healed by His wounds.” Isaiah 53:5
