In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, NY, 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.

1 Mile Route:

From the gym: 1) Turn left out of the parking onto Belleview Ave. 2) Turn left onto River Rd. 3) Run along River Rd until you get to River Ct. 4) Turn around and run back to gym.

  1. Half-Murph 26:13. Did about half the pushups on a 24-inch box. Compared to two years ago… I’m a lot stronger now!

  2. 41.07 rx (minus the vest)
    I haven’t done this since 2011 when I did 1 mile run and 10 rounds of Cindy and then 1 mile run. I did that in 33:43. Ill call this a great improvement 🙂

    1mi
