DESCRIPTION

  • Every Memorial Day and Thanksgiving Day, we perform the Hero Workout “Murph”, which honors Lt. Michael Murphy
  • This is a longer, high volume bodyweight workout
  • You can partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and air squats however you see fit
  • A common option here is 20 rounds of 5-10-15
  • There is also the option to wear a 20/14 pound vest (9/6 Kilos)
  • Choose a rep scheme and variations that will allow you to complete this workout in 45 minutes or less

UPPER BODY MOVEMENTS

  • Choose options for the upper body movements that allow you to complete the partitioned pull-ups in 1 set and the push-ups within 1-3 sets within the workout
  • If a weight vest will prevent you from being able to accomplish this, we recommend completing the workout with just your bodyweight

STRATEGY

RUNS

  • Treat the first mile as a buy-in to the workout
  • With a lot of work ahead, you should get into the gym feeling ready to attack the 3 bodyweight movements
  • On the second 1 mile run, just get out the door and start moving
  • The legs will feel heavy from the air squats, but try to increase your pace every 400 meters if possible

PULL-UPS, PUSH-UPS, AIR SQUATS

  • For maximum efficiency, we recommend completing the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as partitioned rounds of “Cindy”
  • Going 20 rounds of 5-10-15 allows two muscle groups to rest while the other works
  • Unlike the unpartitioned version, we are constantly switching the movement pattern
  • We go from an upper body pull, to an upper body press, to a lower body press
  • These built in “breaks” allow you to maintain a higher intensity, as you’re not as affected by muscle fatigue
  • Aim for 1 set on the pull-ups and 2-3 sets on the push-ups
  • The push-ups tend to go the quickest, so it can be helpful to break them up early and often (6-4, 5-5, or 4-3-3)
  • Move steadily through the air squats to allow yourself to “reload” for the more challenging upper body movements
