Murph time! Honor our veterans and be thankful for our Freedom! This is always an aerobic piece that we can test our mental toughness during.
WORKOUT STRATEGY & FLOW
You may choose if you partition reps, do strict pull ups, and/or if you wear a vest.
If you are looking to complete true “Rx” it will be a #20 vest and unpartitioned reps.
Run: Consistent pace you can do the first and last mile at! Don’t come out hot, you still have a lot of work left!
Pull ups: Stick to manageable sets of 5-10 (something manageable) out of the gate. Keep the kip forceful and fast to save the arms
Push ups: Start with smaller sets than you think you should! There’s nothing wrong with coming out with sets of 3-5 fast sets every 15-20 seconds and doing bigger sets near the middle or end. Again, don’t fry out!
Air Squats: Just stay moving as much as you can and grind through it! Keep weight mid foot and use those glutes/hips! Mentally thinking of it in sets of 10-15 can be a huge help.
Here are some options to scale to finish near or below the target score:
300 Air Squats
*Accumulated by teammates
*If you are completing Murph as a team, complete it unpartitioned!
