What is the “Murph” Workout?
For those of you new to the Murph Workout, here’s what you can expect.
The CrossFit community all over the country does this challenging workout, “Murph,” every Memorial Day in honor of our fallen military members. It is through our pain and sweat that we honor them this day.
This specific workout was a favorite of fallen Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient, Michael Murphy, which is why it’s called “Murph.” Michael Murphy was an avid Crossfitter and used to do the workout, now named Murph, in preparation for his deployments. He did it wearing his flack vest and referred to the workout as “Body Armor.”
Michael was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.
