In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.
This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it 'Body Armor.' From here on it will be referred to as 'Murph' in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

Survey and Question

Survey: Would you rather..
1. Stay upstairs and have the occasional headache about bailing on weight.
or
2. Move back downstairs where bailing is never a problem, however we would have to load/unload the equipment every class and move the mats about 2x per month.

Question:
We're planning on doing "MURPH" on Monday for Memorial day.  Does anyone know an outdoor location in Prospect Park with ample pull-up/monkey bars? We can bring the rings out as well.  Also, what time would be ideal for most people to get together? We will be combining Beginner's and Group classes for this WOD.
