080227 FRIDAY “Rhodes’ Farwell Murph”
+++Muay Thai Canceled Saturday for Dustin’s Fight in Antioch+++
Rhodes is leaving for the Navy this weekend. He was going to do “Murph” as his last workout, I decided that we should all do it with him as a nice ‘send off’. Stick around in the evening for an impromptu going away party.

Run 1 mile
100 pull ups
200 push ups
Run 1 mile
All completed with a 20lb weight vest for time.
Pull ups, push ups and squats can be split up and mixed as much as desired. The runs may not.
Post time to comments.
Scaling: You might try a “Half” Murph without the weight vest. (0.5 miles, 50 pull ups, etc) or even a Half Murph with the 20lb weight vest.
Some classes may even do “Team Murph” where two participants team up and one person goes while the other person rests.
(with the epic photo of Ron and Chris carrying the tire).
Interesting discussion on form going on there. Check it out.
Thanks again to Big Dave for putting together the video(s):
