“Today we give thanks for the blessings of young Americans like Lt. Michael Murphy, who risk their own lives to keep us safe.”- George W Bush
For Time: 1-Mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 Push ups, 300 Air squats, 1-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 he’d 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.
