The Murph Challenge is a workout dedicated to Navy Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, who was killed in action in Afghanistan June 28, 2005.  This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he named it "Body Armor”.  Since that time, it has been referred to as "Murph" in honor of this focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country.
