Coach's Note:

Another Hero wod in memory of the 9/11 attacks. Work hard for the people who sacrificed and lost their lives. We have done Zeus before. Depending on the size of the class, you may have to share some equipment. Have no worries, though, we did it before and it worked just fine. If someone is capable of doing their back squats without the use of a rack (meaning they can move the bar and weight from the ground to the back rack) they should. People with the same or similar weights should share racks or bars and add/subtract the weights needed when its your turn. We can also share the sumo and push press weights if you are doing Rx or the same as someone else. People who need to scale weights or movements should be the first to adjust the order of the Wod. Let the people going for Rx have priority of needed equipment when its their time. Not because they are better or more important, but because they are in fact going Rx and will get a better gauge for repeating the wod next time where someone scaling will have multiple things change on them the next time the wod comes up leaving them with less importance on this wod score. Work together. It is a long, tough wod. Having to change the order here or there will not affect you negatively. If you need to change the order of movements for any particular reason, just be sure to try and fall back in order as soon as possible.
