Congratulations to all the SWAT Teams on completing the CrossFit Hero WOD “Murph” in under 1 hour. The workout “Murph” (1 Mile Run, 100 Pull-ups, 200 Push-ups, 300 Squats, 1 Mile Run) was first recognized as a prominent SWAT fitness challenge by the Santa Monica Police Department SWAT Team. ST. Lucie SWAT was the second team in the nation to adopt the workout as their official SWAT qualification test. In order to be considered for the ST. Lucie SWAT team, operators must complete “Murph” in under 1 hour, wearing BDU pants and boots. As part of the 2015 Nation-wide SWAT “Murph” Competition, CrossFit LEO Liaison Greg Amundson joined St. Lucie SWAT for their yearly qualification. Meanwhile, in California, CrossFit Games Director, Dave Castro, joined Santa Monica SWAT for their qualification. Teams across the Nation, including California Highway Patrol, Los Angeles SEB, and Richmond County SWAT Team, completed the challenge.
