5/29/17 - Salute to Lt. Michael Murphy

**We will be closed Monday 5/29 in observance of Memorial Day**

Memorial Day is a special day at 110 Lincoln. Join us at 10AM for a tribute workout to salute our fallen service men and women. As per tradition, we will be tackling “Body Armor” a favorite workout named by Michael himself that was later renamed “Murph” in his honor.

Lt. Michael Murphy was killed in action in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan on a mission to kill or capture, Ahmad Shah, a high ranking Taliban leader. His position and that of his three other teammates Danny Diez, Matt Axelson, and Marcus Luttrell was compromised by several goat herders. After letting them go, the men soon began surrounded by an overwhelming Taliban militia. In the ensuing gun battle, “Murph” understood his teammates situation dire and he opted to move to an open position under gun fire to make an emergency call from a satellite phone. It was during this call that “Murph” took fatal shots.

He would later be awarded the Medal of Honor.

Today we say an impossible “thank you” to the men and women who didn’t make it home and their families for enduring such loss in the name of freedom.

Salute.

"First things first." It's a figure of speech usually used to emphasize the value in entertaining the most important issues first in a series of activities. I love figures of speech, specifically the corny ones. Think about what makes figures of speech corny, after all. Or, think about what makes them figures of speech in t ...

Aesthetically speaking, the crown jewels of fitness are the usual suspects: abs, biceps, abs, and glutes. Frankly, the glutes are the only coveted fitness aesthetic we're getting right in my honest opinion. While they may continue to make the list for subconscious sexual desires, they are the only muscle group that belongs ...

It breaks my heart when people elect to participate in a quandary with fitness. A quandary, of course, is a game with no upside. Inevitably, it's a lose-lose situation.When you view fitness as an exchange program for lifestyle issues, you're electing for the quandary. Fitness is not a penance, people. When individuals tell ...

Whether it’s deployed as means to justify supplementing with performance enhancing drugs or it’s an argument for subscribing to a fruitarian diet, be weary of the naturalistic fallacy. After all, human growth hormone (HGH) is produced naturally in the body and consuming thirty-one bananas per day (and subsequent Type-II ...

Remember the bell curve? It's a figure of speech at this point, but the last time you probably saw one on paper was in high school. You can graph virtually any observable thing and with enough data points you'll likely find a naturally occurring bell curve. The height of DEUCE Gym members, the average time duration of worko ...

It's incredibly easy to assume that because you're new to fitness or weak in a particular area that this whole thing is just harder for you than it is for other people. This is a mistake. The Holy Grail of any pursuit is when the pursuer gives her best effort. In fact, the beauty of the elusive best effort lies in its rela ...
