Memorial Day 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.
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.
We will be running one session for the traditional “Murph” WOD! 10AM its going down! Come honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and way of life. Coaches will be joining in as well.
Ballston Crossfit will be offering this as a free WOD to guests with a $10 suggested donation to No Greater Sacrifice (NGS) for the Memorial day Murph. No Greater Sacrifice is a charity that grants scholarship to the children of wounded and fallen Service members.
