In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed while trying to protect his Navy SEAL team during an infamous mountainside battle with Taliban forces in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005. In 2007, he was posthumously awarded the Medal Of Honor for his bravery, the first ever given for combat in Afghanistan.
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.
For more of Lt. Michael Murphy and his story, watch this short video.
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.
