You may have never heard of Bob Kalsu, but he’s definitely someone worth your attention.
Kalsu was an NFL player with an extremely promising career ahead of him. After starting the entire 1968 season with the Buffalo Bills as a guard, he was named Team Rookie of the Year.
Despite the promise of a legendary career, Kalsu put that aside to enlist in the Army in 1969 and was soon shipped out to Vietnam, where he lost his life less than a year later. Kalsu left behind a wife and two young children.
He was 25 years old when he died. The Kalsu WOD was created to honor Bob and his sacrifice for our country. The creator of "Kalsu" is ex-NFL player John Welbourn, who established the CrossFit Football program, and Power Athlete HQ. This workout was made in 2009 and is still one of the toughest CrossFIt workouts out there.
