    Workout is named after Michael Patrick “Murph” Murphy ( Murphy was killed on 28 June 2005 after he left his cover position and went to a clearing away from the mountains, exposing himself to a hail of gunfire in order to get a clear signal to contact headquarters for relaying the dire situation and requesting immediate support for his team. In 2013, the story was told by the movie “Lone Survivor.”
