For all of our new people or ones who haven’t done Murph, here’s a quick overview of what it is AND why we do it! Then make sure you put MURPH on your schedule for Satruday, May 25th for an awesome workout and margaritas at the Rio to follow!
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.
Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you've got a twenty or fourteen pound vest or body armor, wear it.
