What is the Murph Challenge?
The Murph Challenge is a workout honoring LT. Michael P. Murphy who was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions in Afghanistan in 2005.
The workout includes a one-mile run, 100 pullups, 200 pushups, 300 squats and another one-mile run. Traditionally the workout is completed with a 20lbs vest
The Murph Challenge has since transformed into a Memorial Day commemoration event – and is undertaken by thousands world-wide, especially in the military and CrossFit communities.
The Murph Challenge is more than just a workout. It is a tradition that helps push us, humble us, and gives us the opportunity to devote a bit of pain and sweat to honor Lt. Michael P. Murphy (SEAL), a man who surrendered everything he had for our freedom.
