HUGE Announcement, PLUS a guest blog!

Two weeks from today on Memorial Day, May 29 CrossFit High Voltage will host it’s Annual Murph event.  So what’s a Murph, anyway??

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor”. “Murph” is in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

This HERO workout is a symbolic gesture of respect for all the fallen soldiers and service men and women who defend our freedom.

CrossFit affiliates around the world, regardless of ethnicity or nation, honor their courage by pushing themselves to the limit in this workout.

It is a way to remember these men and women—to ensure that they are never forgotten. Every Memorial Day weekend, we remember Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy.

Remember that our event at CFHV is our biggest community event of the year.  It’s a chance for each of you, along with your friends & family (yes, they’re invited too!) to join together and share a special day that is bigger than any of us as individuals, and bigger than our gym.

If you’re interested in more information and would like to get the FULL scoop on Michael Murphy and WHY we do this workout, I highly recommend you read this article: http://boxlifemagazine.com/murph-why-we-do-it/


 

We’ll get things started early enough that we all finish before noon.  This way if you have other plans or family events, you’ll have lots of time left to attend them.

We also like to finish before noon so you can all get it in before that afternoon heat kicks in!

The schedule for the day looks like this:

9:00am  Sign-In begins
9:30am  Opening Ceremony
9:45am  Heat 1 Starts

Heats will run every 30 minutes

Also, Murph will have daycare!  Two shifts available:

9:30-11:00am
11:00am-12:30pm

Remember that there are infinite scaling options, so EVERYBODY can participate!  Bring your friends and family.  Now is a great time to show off all of your gains and lead by example!

Not to be missed, here is this week’s coach guest blog with Bryan Felix!

“Do it light, do it right!”

“As a coach and a student I’ve learned that “more” is not always better. In going through my own personal battles with my mobility restrictions, and even recently with my shoulder rehab, I cannot stress how important proper technique is.

Learning how to properly use specific muscle groups I had neglected for years, was huge in my personal recovery.

So… be honest with yourself. If you have ever done something like ring rows, and thought, “oh, that wasn’t so bad”… then you probably did it incorrectly.

If you ever are doing something and don’t feel the muscles your coach said should be active, then let us know and we will gladly help.

Never be afraid to ask questions and take the time to take care of problem areas proactively rather than having your body adapt to those problem areas.

Naturally our body will protect us from well… us.

Our bodies adapt to our daily movement patterns because of our lifestyles. We may have jobs where we drive an hour to get to work or sit at a desk all day not by choice.

That is why mobilizing before/after classes and stressing proper technique when learning or working on any given move is key. #TrustTheProcess”
