"Murph"

1 Mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-Ups
300 Squats
1 Mile Run

For Time. Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed.
Start and finish with a mile run. If you've got a twenty pound vest or
body armor, wear it.
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. Read more...

This Sunday at 11am, we will finally be getting our Murph on! Regular 10am, 11am and 12pm classes will be canceled, so that we can all do this workout together.

 The workout consists of the following:
1 mile run
100 pullups
200 pushups
300 squats
1 mile run

The pullups/pushups/squats can happen in any order and combination, but the workout must begin and end with the runs.

For those of you less accustomed to very high volume workouts, please consider scaling to:
1/2 mile run
50 pullups
100 pushups
150 squats
1/2 mile run

Afterwards, we'll head to Prospect Park, Grand Army Entrance for a picnic/BBQ to refuel and celebrate Laurel's bday. Some food will be provided, but everyone should bring whatever they want for grilling and chowing down. We should get there by about 1:30pm.

Happy Birthday Laurel and Allan!!!

South Brooklyn versus NorCal

It's a well known fact that CrossFit Norcal's athletes and trainer's are a bunch of chumps.  Lets prove it to them with the first of many SBK/Norcal affiliate challenges.  Our first competition will be "Jackie" on Saturday, June 20th.  Athletes will perform one round of: Row 1K, 50 Thrusters at 45lbs, and 30 pull-ups for time.  The affiliate with the lowest cumulative time wins!  More details to come.

The unstoppable NEQ Volunteer Staff

The Kettlebells that some of our athletes ordered have been delivered however they're sitting on the steps leading to the cafe.  If you got KB's then please arrange to have them brought inside or taken home. I won't be able to get to the Lyceum until later today.  Please organize on the comments section.
