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.
On Memorial Day (May 30), we will be completing the hero WOD “Murph”. The gym will open at 9:00AM, with the workout starting around 9:30AM! All other classes are canceled on Monday. This workout is open to anyone, and like all things CrossFit can be infinitely scaled to each person’s ability. For example, if it’s your first time doing this workout, we highly recommend doing “half-Murph” (half the repetitions for time), and we can scale the pull-up and push-up variations as well. RSVP if you’re coming to the WOD Here: MURPH
