CrossFit trainer smashes the ‘MURPH’ challenge for 24 hours without rest.
If you’re about to post some hate about crossfit, then get the f*ck out of here. This article is about Dave Barry, who completed an incredible feat that most of you will only dream of achieving…
This 59-Year-Old managed to pump-out a circuit that consisted of:
- 1 mile run
- 100 pullups
- 200 pushups
- 300 squats
- Another 1 mile run
If some of you are thinking “that doesn’t seem too bad”, remember that Dave didn’t take any rests inbetween this constant circuit for 24-hours. Not only that, he completed this with a weighted vest on the whole f*cking time.
This would have taken you past most of your bedtimes, so don’t bother with any negative comments bro.
What motivated Dave Barry?
Alright, so the thought of someone casually pulling this extreme training session off is pretty crazy. But the 59-year-old actually had a great reason behind it.
Simply put, the circuit we listed above is called the ‘MURPH workout’ (which is named after a Navy Lieutenant, Michael Murphy, who was killed in action). For this reason, Dave revealed that his main motivation was raising funds and awareness for veterans suffering from PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder).
That’s right, you’re probably feeling like a d*ck for thinking bad things about crossfit now, aren’t you brah…
We’ve posted a video of the Barry’s 24 hour session below:
Think you can take on the challenge?
PTSD isn’t something to take lightly. The soldiers putting their lives on the line see some nasty things out there.
In fact, the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs explained: “When you are in the military, you may see combat. You may have been on missions that exposed you to horrible and life-threatening experiences. These types of events can lead to PTSD.”
For this reason, Barry’s 24 hour session is not only ridiculously impressive, but it also shows that he’s a better bro than all of us.
But it doesn’t has to be that way…if you think you can accomplish this grueling 24 hour MURPH workout session, then stop being a little b*tch and get it done.
If you do actually manage it, then make sure to raise funds for veterans suffering from PTSD and send us a video as proof on facebook: www.facebook.com/SpotMeBro
