Memorial Day 'Murph'

For time: 

1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run

If you've got a 20lb vest or body armor, wear it!


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.

Some place flowers on the graves of soldiers on Memorial Day, and others suffer through a painful workout to honor the fallen -
