Memorial Day Murph

Join us on Monday, May 27th for Memorial Day and Honor Lieutenant Michael Murphy. 
We will have rolling heats starting at 9am through 11am. 

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 there on it was 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. 

 Rx for the full WOD will require the weight vest (10# ladies and 20# gentlemen). 

For time: 
1 mile Run 
100 Pull-ups 
200 Push-ups 
300 Squats 
1 mile Run 
 (10#/20# vest)

100 Push-ups 
150 Squats 
800 Meter Run. 

 Partner "Murph" is also an option:

Both athletes will run an 800 together in the beginning and in the end (timer ends as the last person crosses the doorway).
