Michael Patrick “Murph” Murphy was born and raised in Suffolk County, New York. He graduated from Pennsylvania State University with honors and dual degrees in political science and psychology. After college he accepted a commission in the United States Navy and became a United States Navy SEAL in July 2002.
He was a United States Navy SEAL officer who was awarded the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions during the War in Afghanistan. He was the first member of the U.S. Navy to receive the award since the Vietnam War. His other posthumous awards include the Silver Star Medal (which was later upgraded to the Medal of Honor) and the Purple Heart. After participating in several War on Terrorism missions, he was killed on June 28, 2005, after his team was compromised and surrounded by Taliban forces near Asadabad, Afghanistan.
The “Murph” Challenge consists of a 1-mile run, 100 Pull-ups, 200 Push-ups, 300 Squats, and a final 1 mile run. Before the workout begins, participants may choose to wear a body vest weighing 8–20 lbs. This workout was one of Murph’s favorites and he named it “Body Armor”.
See You Sunday — And Thank You “Murph”!
