Do The Murph This Memorial Day Weekend With NordicTrack

Do The Murph This Memorial Day Weekend With NordicTrack

It’s been a tradition for some people, especially those within the CrossFit® world, to do The Murph workout during Memorial Day weekend to honor our fallen heroes, as well as remembering the honorable man who The Murph was named after, LT. Michael P. Murphy (SEAL).

Depending on where you live, performing this workout may be tricky due to unfavorable weather conditions and strict gym hours. Luckily, NordicTrack makes it easy for you to get your Murph workout done within your home before, during, or after your Memorial Day plans.

According to The Murph Challenge, the workout consists of the following:

  • Run 1 mile
  • 100 Pullups
  • 200 Pushups
  • 300 Squats
  • Run 1 mile

This workout was created to be done while wearing a 20 lb vest or body armour, but we suggest going at your own pace to prevent injury.

Memorial Day Murph Workout - NordicTrack

The running portion of the workout can easily be achieved on the Commercial X22i treadmill. A great thing about the X22i is the superior cushioning. The deck of the treadmill was designed to absorb the impact so you’re not putting as much pressure on your joints from running as if you were to run outside on concrete.

Why not amp up your Murph workout a little more by increasing the incline. Thanks to its innovative design, the Commercial X22i treadmill has the capability of going from -6% decline all the way up to 40% incline. This gives you a wide variety of decline, incline –  increasing your calorie burning opportunity.

Once Memorial Day festivities come to a close, continue your fitness throughout the year with your X22i. Start practicing for The Murph next year and give yourself something to work towards.
