“Why sit-ups? Isn’t Murph pull-ups? Yes it is! Aside from the equipment issues, we haven’t been open which means most of us haven’t been doing pull-ups.
While we are confident that many of you could still perform 100 pull-ups, if you haven’t been doing more than 20 pull-ups at least once a week, you shouldn’t.

Why not? Isn’t Murph meant to be a crushing workout to remember the sacrifices so many people have made for us? Absolutely. But landing yourself in the hospital won’t honor anyone. Performing high volume pull-ups, especially after a long break, poses a high rhabdo (more info here 👉🏻👉🏻👉🏻: https://theconversation.com/explainer-what-is-rhabdomyolysis-and-whats-its-connection-to-crossfit-75623) risk.
