Today we are running things a little different. Come in warm-up and then we’ll have people start Murph  at XX:15 and XX:45 of each hour. No Oly Class today. We’ll have some fruit snacks and beverages available for people as well. Come do the WOD, hang-out and watch Jessica do Events 3 & 4 from 10:55am – 12:15pm CT (11:55am – 1:15pm ET).

“Murph”

For time:
1 mile Run*
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run*

*1 mile route = Exit FTX parking lot heading west (starts same as 400m route to mailbox) on Geneva, turn left onto Knollwood RD, turn right onto Jerome Ave and run to Herrick Dr., then head back.

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.
