Every year on Memorial Day CrossFit gyms from all over the United States (and some others in different countries) come to together to perform the Workout "MURPH".
MURPH is a workout done in honor of the Armed Forces. A way for the thousands of CrossFit gyms and hundreds if not millions of CrossFitters to show their thanks and gratitude to the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation.
It's a fun, slightly painful, and long workout. Here, Lee and Amy discuss how to prep for this day.
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.
