What is Murph?

It is a tradition among gyms all over the world to perform this workout on Memorial Day. It is a hero workout named after a fallen U.S. Navy Seal – Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor”. Shortly

after his passing, CrossFit.com renamed it “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who sacrificed his life to save his fellow seals.

What is ‘Cirque’ Murph?

It is a tradition among gyms all over the world to perform Murph on Memorial Day. Murph is a hero workout named after a fallen U.S. Navy Seal – Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. Cirque Murph is a play on 'Classic Murph' with two distinct differences.

This version of the workout will be completed WITH A TEAM MEMBER, you will split all the reps in half, and do the run together. Also instead of pull-ups - we‘ll be executing straddles on any apparatus you choose.
