Murph

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y.,
who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.
If you’re not familiar with the CrossFit classic WOD, Murph, here’s the workout:

  • 1 mile run
  • 100 Pull ups
  • 200 Push ups
  • 300 Air Squats
  • 1 mile run

Now we will give you some tips on how to manage this ROD (WOD).

  • 50 Chin-ups
  • 100 Push-ups
  • 150 Air Squats
