"300" and Half MURPH

Yesterday, a handful of coworkers decided to complete the now-famous "300" workout. Well we had more takers than originally thought, so there was not enough equipment to go around...even with our staggered starts. To save time, some of the group opted out to do a Half MURPH instead (1/2 mile run, 50 pullups, 100 pushups, 150 air squats, 1/2 mile run). While the times are fairly comparable, I'm not sure which is tougher. Any comments? My first answer is MURPH because the 300 requires at least some rest periods during the 50 reps at most stations.

Here are the results. I hope this post will serve as a log entry for our performance on these benchmarks. Now that the times are etched, we must beat them!!


  • Tom L 34:37
  • Tony J 38:03
  • Lou H 26:11


  • Jason C 17:35
  • Paul L 21:45
  • Mark L 37:20
  • Jason W 37:50

Great job all!!

My vote is for the 300. The half Murph didn't have FLOOR WIPERS!!
