“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.” – JFK
On May 25, 2020, we joined CrossFitters around the world by coming together at our boxes in rememberance of all those who have died while serving in the American armed forces. These men and women did not know comfortable inaction, but rather they embraced the dust and sweat and blood of the arena.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn those who died. Rather we should thank God that such warriors lived.” – George S. Patton Jr.
We honor those who have fallen in the arena with the annual hero wod, “Murph.”
– Sean K. “Surfhog”
Murph is named for Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005. This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor.” It has been renamed to “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.
The workout is as follows:
1 Mile Run
100 Pull ups
300 Air Squats
1 Mile Run
Partition the reps as desired, and if you have a 20lb vest, wear it.
