Memorial Day Murph

Who is Murph?
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.

The Workout
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. Choose a version that is appropriate for your strength or skill level. The full version takes about 45-60 minutes to complete. The half version takes about 30-40 minutes to complete and the quarter version takes about 15-25 minutes to complete. If you plan on working out later in the week, don’t choose a version that will wreck you the rest of the Week.
