Happy Memorial Day!

Today we honor the fallen as well as our active service members so keep this in mind as you’re completing the workout. To do so we complete a special workout called MURPH.

Murph is a popular workout, traditionally done on Memorial Day, created by CrossFit in memory of Navy Lt. Michael Murphy who died in Afghanistan on June 28, 2005. It was first posted on August 18, 2005, and since then it’s been completed every year on Memorial Day by CrossFitters, Navy SEALs alike and many more.

Today is YOUR chance to participate. The workout is a grueling and challenging one so we’ve given you options to choose from.

To our veterans, fallen and active service members, thank you for all that you do!

INSTRUCTIONS

• Regardless of what option you choose the workout is long and difficult. Make sure to modify movements and reps appropriately to fit your fitness level.

• Pull ups can be performed either as strict or kipping.

• Traditionally Murph is performed with a weight vest, however this will make the workout significantly harder and longer.
