May 28, 2018: “MURPH”
Memorial Day “Murph'”
Every Memorial Day for the last 11 years, members of Diablo CrossFit community come together and complete the hero workout “Murph'” as a way to honor Military men & women who sacrificed their lives while serving Our Country. Murph’ is a very challenging workout that will test your fitness and your resolve. For those who are unable to complete the workout RX, we recommend a “1/2 Murph” or a “Team Murph” – both are great workouts and an excellent tribute for Memorial Day.
DATE: Monday, May 28
WHERE: Pleasant Hill & San Jose
TIME: 8:00AM – 12:00PM (heats on the hour)
RSVP: Diablo App or Online
COST: None – Must be a Diablo Member

In memory of 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”. 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.
Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty-pound vest or body armor, wear it.
