Eduardo can’t get enough “Murph”!
Murph Day 2019: Sign Up Now!
On Monday, May 27th from 8am to 1pm, we’ll be doing our annual Memorial Day “Murph” workout. This is a great community event where we perform this classic CrossFit benchmark workout followed by some grilling, side dishes, and beers. The workout is tough—very tough—but it can, of course, be scaled to meet everyone’s capacity.
1 Mile Run
1 Mile Run
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 20-pound vest or body armor, wear it.
There is no charge for the workout, nor will it be deducted from your weekly class limit.
We are looking for volunteers to help out with set up and break down on the day of. Please add your name on the sign-up sheet above if you’d like to help us out!

Deadlift: 3×3 @ 62, 70, 82Kg
Calling myself out: I signed up for Murph. I think the last time I did it was 2017, or maybe even 2016, and I’ve never done it Rx. I feel like I have no excuse this year. I always chicken out because I’m afraid I’ll bomb out and be the last one to finish, but seriously, who cares if I am? It’s just exercise. I’m a slow-ass runner and I’m going to just go ahead and be okay with that, and treat the middle of the sh*t sandwich the same way I did 19.1: aggressively chill. It’ll get done eventually.

Deadlift, paused: 225x3x3. This might have been a bit aggressive. My hip was feeling pretty good after Saturday’s AR class but today it was definitely on the stiff side in warmup and putting the bar down on the deadlifts didn’t feel great.
NFT work was an interesting mental challenge. I don’t know why it’s so hard to make myself take small steps going backwards in the bear crawl.
