Memorial day Murph 5.27.13


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 pound vest or body armor, wear it.


For time:
1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run

We can talk about scaling when you get here

    So great to see such a big crew this morning and everybody cheering on everybody else during the workout. Finished in 54:40 but my biggest accomplishment was being able to do 92 of the pull ups without a band – first workout I’ve done without a band ever. My hands ripped badly so I had to stop and tape and then do the last 8 with the blue band. Great job everybody!

    Did this up in NH outside by the lake. We didn’t have a bar for pullups so we subbed 65# push press and finished in 49:10
