The Workout:

28th, 2005.  This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named
it "Body Armor".  We will honor a 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.

"Murph"

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups,
