5/15/15 - DEUCE Gym Presents: Memorial Day “Murph”
Before he was killed in a covert military operation, his training was ruthless. It was ruthless out of necessity. Physical capacity is quite important when you’re a leader in the SEAL Teams, after all. One of his favorite workouts was one he made up. Here’s it is:
Run 1 Mile
100 Pull Ups
200 Push Ups
Run 1 Mile
He called it ‘Body Armor” because he believed that doing it would protect him from harm in battle. In fact, he’d do the entire thing wearing his armored combat vest. This training was often just another day for him, maybe a Tuesday. No one watched. There really wasn’t much to see or much to talk about.
This is Michael Murphy’s workout. We now call it “Murph.”
Join us Memorial Day for this special day. Monday May 25th we invite you to do “Murph” in the sun with us at noon. This workout stokes fear in everyone, so don’t worry about being able to do it. We will offer numerous scaling options and the ability to do it in teams.
