WOD:

“Murph”

For Time

1 Mile Run

100 Pull-Ups

200 Push-Ups

300 Air Squats

1 Mile Run

 

*RX+ must wear a 20lb weighted vest for the entire workout*

**Athletes may partition the Pull-Ups, Push-Ups, and Air Squats as desired**

 

 

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor”. From here on it will be referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

 

 

Welcome to The Murph Challenge! Forged® is proud to introduce its annual fundraiser, benefiting the LT Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation. Beginning on Memorial Day submit your “Murph” time for a chance to compete in The Murph Challenge Invitational.

REMINDER: We will have one class today at 9AM. All other classes are canceled. 

We will be closed Sunday 5/28 and Monday 5/29 in honor of Memorial Day. Have a safe and fun holiday weekend!

    I am not going to lie, I had planned on doing MURPH early tomorrow am since I coached all the classes today at CFJ. However, after watching all the athletes work so hard today in the heat and humidity and Mandee and Nate telling me how awesome and many people at CFHSV got after it for MURPH. All of you got inside my veins and blood and motivated me to do it today. Not a PR by far but worked real hard for MURPH!

    MURPH as RXd (no vest) = 43:58

    Great Job CFHSV. Have a safe and marvelous Memorial Day weekend!
