I’ve learned a lot about Crossfit from my fellow Tumblrs but I still enjoyed this article about the Murph workout and Crossfit culture. It also features Crossfit South Brooklyn, a box I was delighted to learn has its own book club (that’s how we roll in the Slope).
Here’s the Murph workout (source) since it isn’t in the article:
- 1 Mile Run to start
- 100 Pull-ups
- 200 Push-ups
- 300 Squats
- 1 mile run to finish
Considering I have never done a pull-up in my life, I assume my time completing Murph would be approximately ∞.
