Goals today: keep a steady pace on your run and really work some good strength building in the weighted strict pull ups.  How you hold the weight is totally up to you.  As seen in the demo video, you could hold a DB between your thighs, or down by the ankles, or use a belt chain to hold the weight. For those looking to do “Murph” with a vest, why not do your runs and pull ups with that vest?  If you want to add even more weight when doing the strict pull ups, go for it!

Scaling Options:

Run -> 500M Row

Weighted strict pull ups -> Bodyweight strict pull ups -> banded strict pull ups (lightest band possible) (ELITE: Wear vest you plan to use in “Murph”)
