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 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.
Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you've got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.
*All fitness levels are welcome, from conditioned to deconditioned, from skinny to obese, from young to old. The goal of this challenge is to change lives.
*This is for new members only, you must NOT have been a member of the gym since 2/19/2018
*We all need challenges to grow. Surrounding ourselves with other goal-oriented individuals, a top-end coaching staff, and a set of metrics to see results will complete the support network necessary for success. What better way to do it than commenting a fallen US Soldier?
