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.

Survey and Question

Survey: Would you rather..
1. Stay upstairs and have the occasional headache about bailing on weight.
2. Move back downstairs where bailing is never a problem, however we would have to load/unload the equipment every class and move the mats about 2x per month.

We're planning on doing "MURPH" on Monday for Memorial day.  Does anyone know an outdoor location in Prospect Park with ample pull-up/monkey bars? We can bring the rings out as well.  Also, what time would be ideal for most people to get together? We will be combining Beginner's and Group classes for this WOD.

"Does my butt look big in these?"

Cook some organic chicken breast on a non-stick pan with a little bit of olive oil. Once the chicken is about 90% done you can add a generous helping of swiss chard and asparagus into the mix. I prefer to broil the asparagus with oil, pepper and garlic for about 10 minutes before I add it to the pan but that's really only to preserve some texture.
Season with some pepper and lemon before enjoying. If you're zoning you may want to add some fruit for dessert. Preferably berries.
This meal took about 15 minutes from start to finish.
