In memory of Navy Lt. Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, New York, who was killed in Afghanistan on June 28, 2005. This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it Body Armor. From here on it will be 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 beautiful people who make it what it is.
A good rep scheme is 5/10/15
- Using a foam roller or lacrosse ball target your hip capsule and hip flexors. Once you find the target spot contract your leg in and out, like a piston, to target deeper into the muscle.
