Our 4th annual Memorial Day Murph Challenge will take place on Monday, May 29th at 9:00 AM.
Each year, members of CrossFit Embark on a physical and mental journey to honor those Men and Women who have given the Ultimate Sacrafice serving our country.
1 mile Run
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.
We invite you to bring your friends and family out to the event to watch and participate. Don’t worry about the total volume of the workout. If you are new to CrossFit or have never done it before, we will have scaling options(1/4 or 1/2 Murph for example) for you. The workout can be done as a partner WOD as well.
