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.
Murph Training Week of 5/21 – 5/27
MURPH TRAINING DAY 14 (5/21):
EMOM x 30
“Every minute, on the minute,” (for 30 rounds) complete 3 pull-ups, 6 push-ups, and 9 squats. Once you complete the work, you may rest the remaining time left in that minute. Begin the work again at the top of the next minute. The faster you work, the longer you rest. Keep in mind, the faster you work the longer you may NEED to rest!
To scale the workout up, wear a 20 lb vest.
MURPH TRAINING DAY 15 (5/23):
10 x 400m Run, 2:00 Rest
Yes we said 10 x! Run 400m then rest 2 minutes, ten times.
To scale the workout up, wear a 20 lb vest, and/or decrease the rest. Good Luck!
