Partition the Pull-Ups, Push-Ups, and Squats as needed.  This is a leaderboard workout, but to count for the leaderboard it must be performed with a weighted vest (20#/14#).

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005.  This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it "Body Armor".  It is now referred to as "Murph" in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the people who make it what it is.
