BYU-Idaho’s Viking Company, as a part of the ROTC program, will host “Hero: Workout of the Day” in honor of Veterans Day. Participating individuals will join ROTC members on I-Center Basketball Court 1 on Nov. 11 at 5 p.m. for six speed-rounds of various exercises.
Sign-in begins at 4:30 p.m. and the workout is free to all students, friends and family members.

The workout will contain six rounds performed as fast as possible and includes:
Homer hopes the program becomes a regular event for the school and the ROTC, so it can continue for years to come.
