The Murph 2023 #CryptidFit

Honoring Heroes: The Murph Workout

  • by

Every Memorial Day, the CrossFit community unites to honor Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy with the iconic Murph workout, originally dubbed “Body Armor” by Murphy himself. This rigorous routine, consisting of a one-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 air squats, and another one-mile run, symbolizes sacrifice and resilience. It’s not just for elite athletes; Murph welcomes participants of all fitness levels with scaled versions available. Murph isn’t just about physical endurance; it’s about paying tribute to those who’ve served their country. So, as you tackle Murph this Memorial Day, remember Murphy and all heroes, drawing inspiration from their sacrifice to push yourself further and never forget the true meaning of Memorial Day.
