Memorial Day Murph 2022

It’s that time of the year again! Every May Boulder CrossFit preps its members for our annual Murph workout. You may be asking yourself, what is Murph, and more importantly why the heck would anyone put themselves through that workout?

The Murph in CrossFit is what we call a “chipper”. It’s a long aerobic workout normally consisting of different movements and high reps. The exact workout is listed above.

Over the years, we’ve heard all the excuses on why NOT to do this workout. Were not focusing on the why not in this post but rather the why. This is a hero WOD designed to honor the life of Navy Seal, Lt. Michael Murphy who died in combat. Sometimes you put yourselves through workouts that are bigger than just fitness. And this is one of them. We do Murph each year to put ourselves in the shoes of people like Michael Murphy. The workout is NOT easy and meant to be mentally and physically grinding.

The best part of Murph is when our whole community comes together and crushes the workout with no complaints or excuses. Just remember, when you’re on your last mile run and wanting to give up, that we are all doing this together.

Can’t wait to see you all on Saturday!
