MON 05.28.18 “Murph”

By | Events, Partner WOD, WOD | No Comments

Team CFM Murph 2016


Today's schedule

Gym is closed for Memorial Day
08:45: Memorial Day Murph at Piedmont Park Active Oval. CFM Gym Closed. Meet at the park at 08:45 to warm-up for the WOD.
11:00: CFM Brunch at The Nook in Midtown. Join your fellow CFM Members for a nutrition brunch and social on Memorial Day.

Workout of the Day (WOD)

"Murph"
1 Mile Run
100 Pullups
200 Pushups
300 Air Squats
1 Mile Run
**Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run.

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 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. We realize that no physical sacrifice made during a workout can come close to the sacrifice our brave heroes make, but we consider this WOD a CrossFitters “moment of silence.” This is how we can honor those that give all in the name of freedom.

During Murph, do your best to maintain great form for all movements. You will get tired. Your form may break. That’s okay. This workout is not about how fast you can go or the time you can beat. It’s about participating and remembering. If you have to slow down to perform the reps to standard, do so and know that this workout is our way to honor those who serve this country.


Scaling Options
Pushups: Incline pushups (to retaining wall, to bench, or on hill) 1:1, knee pushups 1:1
Pullups: Ring Rows 1:1

Partner Murph
Split up the 1 mile run into 2 x 800m or 4 x 400m. For the Pullups, pushups, and squats, 1 partner working at a time then rotate with all reps being a team total. Partners can alternate rounds of Cindy or split the reps in half: 5 pullups partner 1, then 5 pullups partner 2, 10 pushups partner 1, then 10 pushups partner 2 and so on.

1 Mile Partner Murph
Both partners run a full mile together at the beginning and end of the workout. For the pullups, pushups, and squats, 1 partner working at a time to complete the team total.

And coming tomorrow...

TBA

2018 Open at CrossFit Midtown

By | CrossFit Games, Events, News | No Comments

Celebrate completing each Open workout!


8 Reasons You Owe It To Yourself
To Do The Open & Friday Night Lights

The 2018 Open begins soon!

CrossFit Midtown will be doing the open workouts on Friday during regular classes and then each week we have a Friday Night Lights (FNL) competition highlighting match-ups with both individual and team events as well as a gym social after the workouts. The 1st Open workout is released on Thursday, February 22nd and continues for 5 weeks with 1 new workout each week.

Cary finishing the last reps on 17.1!


Participating in the Open is a seminal CrossFit experience and we highly recommend all athletes who have been training at CFM for a year or more to sign up. This is a great opportunity to test your fitness and enjoy the camaraderie and community of CrossFit.

Click here to register for the open and join Team CFM. #InTheOpen #CFMStrong!


Sign Up and Join Team CFM!


1. Experience the adrenaline rush of competition.

So many of us have never felt what it was like to compete in sports during our youth. Maybe you weren't the "athletic kid" growing up. Sure, you probably had plenty of extra curricula’s, Knowledge Bowl, band, choir, speech... But the feeling of going head-to-head with your peers on a physical playing field is one that must be experienced firsthand.

And what better place to step outside your comfort zone than within the familiar walls of CFM?

Get to know fellow CFMers


Watching the Open at FNL!

2. Meet your fellow Athletes.

We all know this is so much more than just a gym. We get to know each other. We make friends. We cheer for each other by name. But what about the members on opposite schedules from yours? Get to know the early risers, the night owls, the weekend warriors. FNL is basically one big mixer, chock-full of all the people with whom you share at least one very key interest.

3. Break through mental and physical barriers.

Can't do double unders? Never touched your toes to a bar before? Get ready to astound yourself. The Open has a way of drawing us out of our self-imposed shells and showing us what we're truly capable of. Plus, there's no cherry picking at FNL. Those movements we may subconsciously or not so subconsciously avoid won't be denied, and being forced to face them head on can open new doors for our fitness.

4. You're signing up for 5 weeks of challenging yourself, proving your resolve, and having a blast.

Not just WODs, FNL features team building, themes, entertainment, and friendly rivalry for the overall team prize. There's never a dull moment under the lights.

Achieve new heights of your fitness with the support of our community.


5. See your coaches walk the walk.

Wish you could witness your favorite coach go HAM in the WOD or pit yourself neck and neck against them? Maybe you want to return the favor for all the times they've barked encouragement in the midst of a particularly gross workout. Here's your chance!

Dez doing her first FNL Open 16.3 Scaled!


6. Because you're good enough.

The beauty of the Open is that it truly is for everyone especially now that there’s a Scaled Division. And trust me, the most thrilling moments of FNL the ones that live on vividly in our memories belong to those who achieve their first pull up, double under, T2B, etc.

The excitement of FNL!


7. It just might inspire you or you might inspire others.

No matter which end of the fitness spectrum you currently find yourself on, I guarantee that if you show up and pour your all into the week's WOD, people will notice. You may find yourself with your very own cheering section. FNL is further proof that we WANT each other to succeed, and that success is measured on a scale completely unique to each of us.

8. This is a journey, and we're on it together!

CFM Ladies! Teammates and Friends!
