An army of CrossFitters

We're starting a new MEBB strength cycle today.  We'll be rotating Mid Hang Power Cleans, High Bar Back Squats and Bench presses over the next three weeks as well as some skill work and Posterior Chain moves. Some of you may remember the TREMENDOUS gains people were making at the beginning of the year when we did an "Effort CrossFit" cycle. Check out the calendar for more info!

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.

Rest Day

Brandy at the Qualifiers

This Sunday at 11am, we will finally be getting our Murph on! Regular 10am, 11am and 12pm classes will be canceled, so that we can all do this workout together.

 The workout consists of the following:
1 mile run
100 pullups
200 pushups
300 squats
1 mile run

The pullups/pushups/squats can happen in any order and combination, but the workout must begin and end with the runs.

For those of you less accustomed to very high volume workouts, please consider scaling to:
1/2 mile run
50 pullups
100 pushups
150 squats
1/2 mile run

Afterwards, we'll head to Prospect Park, Grand Army Entrance for a picnic/BBQ to refuel and celebrate Laurel's bday. Some food will be provided, but everyone should bring whatever they want for grilling and chowing down. We should get there by about 1:30pm.

Happy Birthday Laurel and Allan!!!
