“It’s a loss in or lack of reflexive strength that creates movement dysfunctions and compensations. From a corrective exercise vantage point, all movement dysfunctions that aren’t a result of immediate trauma (like a contact ACL tear) are a result of a loss of reflexive strength/stability. This is why you may have had limited long-term success with traditional corrective exercise programs – they don’t address reflexive strength, only the symptoms of its loss.“—Geoff Neupert for TNation.com
“Getting caught up in distractions, hype, and your own self-made celebrity can be a liability. While there is nothing wrong with promoting yourself, this weekend’s CrossFit Games Regional events may have demonstrated that there is a balance to be struck between becoming the hype you have created and simply putting your head down and doing the work required to dominate. In other words, you can say, “I will,” or you can just do it.”—Patrick McCarty for Breaking Muscle

It’s the beginning of Memorial Day weekend which, for us, means those who are unable to make it on Memorial Day will do “MURPH” today and tomorrow. If this is the case then just warm-up and get to it. Good luck! Everyone else will do the above workout. Be smart if you are doing MURPH on Saturday or on Memorial Day!
