We will have a slightly modified schedule this weekend for Memorial Day weekend. Almost all of our trainers are out of town this weekend but we have still managed to keep it as normal as possible. Thank you to Coach Shelly, Coach Christie and Coach Nitin for stepping up!!It will be back to normal on Tuesday. Here is the schedule for the weekend.
Saturday= Open gym from 10 am-11:30 am
Monday= “Murph” 10 am-11:30
In 12 min build to a heavy 3 rep thruster from rack
Burpees over bar
Monday’s WOD (Memorial Day Open Gym 10-11:30):
The “Murph” Hero WOD was originally posted on the CrossFit Main Site as the workout of the day for Thursday August 18, 2005 (050818), where the post said “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.”
“Murph” has become one of the most famous CrossFit workouts, especially popular as a tribute on Memorial Day in the US, when the workout is often referred to as “Memorial Day Murph.”
The workout, as prescribed (“Rx”), requires a weight vest but allows the athlete to partition the work as needed. In a more challenging “Rx+” version of the workout some athletes do the work un-partitioned (complete the 100 pull-ups before beginning the push-ups, etc.). The workout first appeared in the CrossFit Games championships in 2015 (athletes partitioned the work), then again in 2016 (athletes were required to do it unpartitioned).
