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...
