Memorial Day is right around the corner and with Memorial Day for most CrossFitters comes Murph. Murph is a hero workout named after Michael Murphy who was a Navy SEAL who died in Afghanistan protecting our freedom.
It is: 1 mile run, 100 pull ups, 200 push ups, 300 air squats, 1 mile run.
RX includes a 20 lb vest for the men and a 14 pound vest for the ladies. It was performed in the CrossFit Games 2015.
I’ve done a full Murph 3 times now and a half Murph 3 times. Last time I did a full Murph, I felt it was too easy for me. And I had run a 5k directly before it. This morning I did a half Murph (but kept the 2 mile run) and it was REALLY easy. Hence, I’m thinking of doing Murph on Memorial Day with the vest.
What do you all think? Have you done Murph with a vest?
