02/19/11 – "Murph"

Today’s Recipe – Crispy Grain-Free Oven Fried Swai – Life As a Plate

Today’s Links –


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.

Schedule –

  • Mobility Warm Up
  • WOD – “Murph”
    • 1 mile run (6x around building)
    • 100 Pull Ups
    • 200 Push Ups
    • 300 Air Squats
    • 1 mile run (This time 5x around building)
  • NOTE:  To scale this workout do the following – 1/2 mile run / 50 Pull Ups / 100 Push Ups / 150 Air Squats / 1/2 mile run

  1. Two words: “Wowzers-BaDowzers!!!”. I would have loved to attempt this workout if I wasn’t going into Hoboken later on for the competition. Good luck to everyone who does the “Murph”. Xoxo

  2. Kudos to everyone who completed Murph today…brutal, yet satisfying 🙂
    I hope everyone had a great time at the Hoboken Challenge (and that tomorrow’s recovery is not too painful). I’m sure y’all kicked ass!
