For those looking to give The Murph Challenge (aka Memorial Day Murph) a run for the money this year we have a plan for you. Over the next four weeks we will be putting out some weekly training suggestions to help you improve your performance. There will be 3 workouts during the week (Monday / Wednesday / Friday) and then a weekly Bro Session dedicated to training as well. Tune in, share it with friends and family and then see how you do on Memorial Day weekend. Have questions? Let us know how we can help you better take on The Murph Challenge.
