Ways to scale Murph….

With Murph, you can tackle those movements any way you wish. Remember, Murph is not about being the fastest, but about honoring the Fallen with your best effort and coming together as a community!

1. 5-10-15. 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 squats – 20 Rounds
2. 5-5-5-15. 5 push-ups, 5 pull-ups, 5 push-ups, 15 squats – 20 Rounds (my favorite)
3. 5-5-5-5-5-5. – 20 Rounds
4. 3-6-9. 3 pull-ups, 6 push-ups, 9 squats – 33 Rounds
5. 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 20 Squats = 15 Rounds then…5 Final Rounds 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups

OR…

Grab a partner and split the events—Make it a team effort!

• Scale the events or make it a chipper, splitting the events into manageable rounds. Modify the movements for your skill level!
• Pull-ups not there yet? Use a band for assistance!
• Trouble doing traditional push-ups? Use a box or take them down to the knee!
• Squat ROM not there? Do box squats!

Remember, Murph is not about being the fastest, but about honoring the Fallen with your best effort and coming together as a community!

WHAT IS SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY?
Shop Small is a nationwide movement that celebrates small businesses every day and helps communities thrive and stay vibrant. Small Business Saturday® -- a special day when we can show support as a nation for small business owners and communities – helps fuel the Shop Small Movement and is the cornerstone of American Express’ Shop Small efforts.

Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and communities across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, this day is celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. In 2018, you can get out and support the places you love with the people you love on Nov 24.

WHY SHOULD I SHOP SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY?
As a consumer, you’re a key part in helping small businesses thrive. By shopping or dining at small businesses throughout the year, you’re showing your support for the small businesses in your neighborhood and in the communities you call your own.

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
Anyone can support Small Business Saturday simply by shopping small on the day. Get up, get out and shop or dine at a local small business, invite friends to shop with you, or share on your social networks where you #ShopSmall.
