*this is a HARD hero WOD. Please do not be intimidated by it, as there are many scaled options; don’t use a vest, do 1/2 the reps, do it with a friend, DO WHAT YOU CAN. Gym will be open at 8, and we will close at 11am. Let’s remember what Memorial Day is all about.

Team Wod 5/28/16 and a Memorial Day reminder

8:30 Olympic Lifting
10:00 Team Wod

*Heads up! Monday is Memorial Day, and here at CFM we will be celebrating by doing a workout called “Murph”. Here’s the back story:

Murph – The Man

A team of 4 Navy SEALs led by LT. Michael P. Murphy on a mission to capture or kill a key Taliban leader, found themselves seriously outnumbered in a firefight with hundreds of enemy troops. Pinned down and under intense enemy fire, their communications operator severely wounded, they were in desperate need of help. Due to the mountainous terrain, their communications could not be received. Understanding the situation, LT. Michael P. Murphy moved to open ground, to use his satellite phone, exposing himself to enemy fire. LT Murphy was mortally wounded making that call. They continued fighting until Lt. Murphy and two of his three teammates were mortally wounded. His fourth team member, severely injured himself, managed to escape and was rescued 4 days later. He went on to tell the story in a book and movie titled “The Lone Survivor”.

For his selfless leadership, courageous actions and extraordinary devotion to duty, LT. Michael P. Murphy was posthumously rewarded the Medal of Honor, the first service member to receive the medal for service in Afghanistan, and the first Navy recipient of the medal since Vietnam.

The Workout:

For Time, with a weight vest
1 mile run
100 Pull Ups
200 Push Ups
300 Air Squats
1 mile run

DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED if you can’t do the entire workout (Not many can). Anyone can do their own version of “Murph” including scaling the run, reps, movements, or even partitioning the workout as a team. The idea is to challenge yourself and do a little more and go a little faster each year.

Push ups with chest touching the ground and full extension at the top. Let’s keep each other accountable to doing GREAT reps! #holdthestandard.

This week we will be getting back to some more “traditional” CrossFit programming; and by traditional we mean constantly varied. Do not expect to see today’s workout again for a while.  
Our linear progression cycles served their purpose, and in our opinion certainly made you more fit. You got better and faster at moving yourselves and external objects quickly! 

What you will see in the upcoming weeks are some benchmark WODs (like today’s), some 1RM days, some chippers, some sprints… You know, CrossFit stuff 🙂

Everything we’ve programmed has been intended to make you stronger and faster – better at CrossFit.
