    I did the Murph Challenge for the first time yesterday. Did not plan it to be on the anniversary of Operation red Wings, but it worked out that way and it made staying motivated throughout the challenge a lot easier.

    I just finished my third month of SEALFit and was curious what kind of times for the Murph everyone had. I did my first on in 56:56.95. Not sure how that stacks up, but my goal was one hour and I got in under that!

    Solid number Brian. Next time try to get under 50 min.

    Guys,
    I have the Murp set as one of my long term goals. concerning the 100 pullups – I my max was 25 pullups, after that I drop DRAMATICALLY to like 4 or five and the last rep is bad. The next set is maybe one or two with the last one being a probable no count. Meaning after three attempts I might be at roughly 1/3 of the pullup requirement.
    I have seen folks talk of doing a triple Murph and I am just struggling to understand how I might be able to complete all 100.
    The pushups and squats I can see, still not there yet, but can you help me with the pullups. How do you break them down and are we talking about strict pullups?
    I would appreciate anyone’s input here.
    How did you get there etc…and yes I know hard work.

    Yes all strict pull-ups. So the easiest way I have done it and the way that I was told to do it was run the mile then 10 rounds of 10 pull-ups, 20 push-ups, 30 squats, then the mile again. That way it allows yours arms to recover a little in between.

    Thanks Brian,
    I have been doing 1/4 Murphs headed to half and so on. Thanks for the reply. And you have one of the funniest profile pics I’ve seen.

    One thing that has helped me is something I call the “Murph Prep”, I do just the calisthenics, no run, no vest. I work on strict form for all 3 exercises and work on building up strength. It has helped me as my Murph Time is 44:00 + change with a vest and I’m 49.
