The above workout is a combination of the CrossFit workouts “Nate” – named after Nate Hardy, and “Murph” – named after Lt Michael Murphy. If you are not yet familiar with Medal of Honor recipient Lt Michael Murphy, please click here and read about his acts of courage and selflessness. He, and the many others that have served and conducted themselves with similar bravery, represent the best of our country. Please take pride in honoring and remembering them this Memorial Day.
