Who is Murph

Memorial Day is a time to celebrate the lives of our fallen soldiers, a practice which began following the Civil War.

There has, however, been a resurgence of those who want to make the day more than the unofficial start to summer. In the fitness community, it’s called the “Murph”, a workout in honor of a fallen American hero.

We do the “Murph” in honor of fallen United States Navy SEAL Lieutenant Michael Patrick Murphy.

Stop 21-15-9ing Yourself To Death

You want to be elite? Be strongest and fastest for the longest. People 21-15-9 themselves to death thinking it will get them to Matt Frasier status – and they might see some improvement, but it won’t be sustainable, healthy, or get them to the level they want to be.

Time To Make It Public.

Last week, Sarah wrote about her upcoming goals.

This is less of a blog about a specific subject and more about my personal goals over the next year.

That was Tough...What's Next

I like having someone, or something, holding me accountable. Perhaps I didn’t give this last challenge my all. So I am going to try something different. One thing I hate doing is letting people down. So we are going to let our friends, family, and followers select my next goal.

Motivation – There’s no Such Thing.

There is no such thing as motivation. Let me repeat, there is no such thing as motivation. Motivation is fleeting, it exist for two seconds and is gone the next.

Starting Over

It is easy to talk about and read about fitness when you are actively involved in fitness. However, after college, after kids, after a new job, many of us no longer prioritize nor engage in fitness activities beyond a walk to the coffee shop during our lunch break.

I am writing on this topic because it is something I am struggling with as well: Starting Over.
