U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Liam J. Nevins, 32, of Middlebury, Vermont, was killed by small arms fire while conducting combat operations in Paktia Province, Afghanistan, on Sept. 21, 2013. Nevins was assigned to Operational Detachment Alpha 9521, Bravo Company, 5th Bn., 19th Special Forces Group, based in Fort Carson, Colorado.

His friends remember him as a cut above when it came to fitness. He enjoyed hiking and running outdoors, as well as the full gamut of CrossFit movements, from Olympic lifting to gymnastics.

He is survived by his mother, Victoria; father, William; fiancée, Julie Huynh; and sisters, Maeve and Raven.

    I have discovered my favorite way to hold the plate: Vertical on the shoulder, one hand on either side of the plate. Press it to the other side when the same-side arm gets tired. Give it a shot!

    the plate carry was a ridiculous grip workout. next time I’ll try Matt’s method. great workout.

    First time squatting in over 2 weeks, no back pain at all.

    The run with the plate was less fun than the rest of the wod. Good times.
