What is the Murph workout?
The Murph workout is a popular and challenging fitness regimen that honors the memory of U.S. Navy SEAL Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, who was killed in action in 2005 during Operation Red Wings in Afghanistan. Known for his dedication to physical fitness, Lt. Murphy designed the workout himself, and it was later named after him. The Murph workout is commonly performed on Memorial Day in the United States by military personnel, first responders, and CrossFit enthusiasts as a way to pay tribute to the fallen soldiers and to test their physical limits.
The Murph workout consists of the following exercises, performed in sequence:
300 air squats
The goal is to complete the entire workout as quickly as possible. Participants are encouraged to wear a 20-pound weight vest or body armor to simulate the gear worn by military personnel during training or combat operations, although this is optional and not required.
The Murph workout is a true test of strength, endurance, and mental grit, pushing participants to their limits while also fostering camaraderie and community among those who take on the challenge. The workout is not only a way to honor Lt. Murphy and other fallen heroes but also a reminder of the sacrifices they made in service to their country. By pushing ourselves to complete the Murph workout, we symbolically pay our respects and show gratitude for the bravery and dedication of those who have served in the military.
