This year The Citybug Challenge will be dedicated to the heroes! We are drawing inspiration from an international Crossfit Hero workout named Murph.
This very special workout is dedicated to Lieutenant Michael Patrick Murphy. Lieutenant Murphy was a Navy SEAL who was gunned down after he bravely abandoned cover in an effort to call for backup to save the rest of his platoon in Afghanistan.
Originally written by Lieutenant Murphy, he called his gruelling workout Body of Armour – as he did it while wearing a 25-pound [11.3kg] weighted vest. After his death, the CrossFit community renamed it the Murph and added it to their collection of Hero Workouts named after fallen heroes.
