Murph at Home

Every year, our gym usually hosts the annual Murph on Memorial Day. They are currently closed for in person training due to statewide COVID-19 restrictions. But they were still able to host a Zoom version of Murph. Several of us joined from home and a few joined from a local park (while properly distanced). In the end, we were able to get in the full Murph experience in our garage. Afterwards, we stopped by the local park to visit (from a distance) with other gym friends that did Murph.

Murph is an annual workout usually done on Memorial Day by many gyms across the US. It is done in honor of Lt. Michael Murphy who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2005.

Murph consists of:

  • 1 Mile Run
  • 100 Pull Ups
  • 200 Push Ups
  • 300 Squats
  • 1 Mile Run

It is prescribed to wear a 20lb. weight vest while completing the workout. However, that is optional. In fact, you can and should modify Murph to align with your fitness goals — but keep it challenging!
