Lieutenant Michael Murphy:

Murph-2

Medal of Honor Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as the leader of a special reconnaissance element with Naval Special Warfare Task Unit Afghanistan on 27 and 28 June 2005. While leading a mission to locate a high-level anti-coalition militia leader, Lieutenant Murphy demonstrated extraordinary heroism in the face of grave danger in the vicinity of Asadabad, Konar Province, Afghanistan. On 28 June 2005, operating in an extremely rugged enemy-controlled area, Lieutenant Murphy’s team was discovered by anti-coalition militia sympathizers, who revealed their position to Taliban fighters. As a result, between 30 and 40 enemy fighters besieged his four-member team. Demonstrating exceptional resolve, Lieutenant Murphy valiantly led his men in engaging the large enemy force. The ensuing fierce firefight resulted in numerous enemy casualties, as well as the wounding of all four members of the team. Ignoring his own wounds and demonstrating exceptional composure, Lieutenant Murphy continued to lead and encourage his men. When the primary communicator fell mortally wounded, Lieutenant Murphy repeatedly attempted to call for assistance for his beleaguered teammates. Realizing the impossibility of communicating in the extreme terrain, and in the face of almost certain death, he fought his way into open terrain to gain a better position to transmit a call. This deliberate, heroic act deprived him of cover, exposing him to direct enemy fire. Finally achieving contact with his headquarters, Lieutenant Murphy maintained his exposed position while he provided his location and requested immediate support for his team. In his final act of bravery, he continued to engage the enemy until he was mortally wounded, gallantly giving his life for his country and for the cause of freedom. By his selfless leadership, courageous actions, and extraordinary devotion to duty, Lieutenant Murphy reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

Last year the intramural style competition proved to be a lot of fun and a great way for everyone to get together and celebrate fitness.

The Intramural Open will have four teams. Each team will have a captain and members will be selected using a random drawing. Before the drawing, each member will be divided and placed into different groups based on ability to help ensure teams are as even as possible.

My CrossFit journey did not start as the typical “join a gym to lose weight and get in shape” motivation. To offer some perspective, I am 5’10” and before CrossFit my weight was generally between 125-130lbs. I was an avid runner, running an average of 25 miles a week. Because I was thin and active, I thought this meant I was fit and healthy. It was not until after I sustained a pelvic fracture from running that I started to rethink what being fit and healthy actually meant. I joined CrossFit Hud in April 2015 with a goal of gaining muscle mass and becoming stronger.  Since beginning their programming and implementing their education regarding proper nutrition, I have gained 15lbs and feel stronger and healthier than I have ever felt. Not only have I gained a new perspective on health and fitness, I gained an amazing sense of community at CrossFit Hud!

BOD POD Body Composition Measurement Testing Quick, Convenient & Accurate.

What are the benefits of BOD POD Body Composition Measurement?

Because the BOD POD is highly accurate, it can detect even small changes in body fat and lean body mass (i.e., muscle, bones and organs). Body composition is one of the best indicators of overall health. The feedback you receive from your BOD POD test can be used to measure the success of your nutrition and/or exercise program, monitor for obesity, a risk factor for major diseases, like stroke and diabetes, help you lose or gain body fat safely, fine tune your athletic performance and more.

How long does an assessment take?

You will be sitting inside the BOD POD cabin for about 3 minutes. However, during that time, the door will be opened and closed between two 50-second trials. Total time including goal setting and reviewing the results is approximately 10 to 15 minutes. What should I expect? Simply sit comfortably and quietly (no laughing or talking), relax and breathe normally and the BOD POD does the rest. Sounds relating to the valves opening and closing may be heard, but most people are unaware of the slight pressure changes that take place. You may notice a feeling similar to being in an elevator or the initial take-off in an airplane.

How accurate is it?

The BOD POD, which uses air displacement technology, is considered to be the gold standard of body composition measurement. It is as accurate as hydrostatic (underwater) weighing, but quicker and easier to perform. The range of error for this test is 1 to 2.7%.

BOD POD Instructions

In order to have the best possible results, follow these simple instructions: No food, drink or exercise at least 2 hours prior to testing. Use the restroom before testing, if necessary. Don’t apply any lotions or skin creams prior to your test. Remove glasses and jewelry (if possible). Wear minimal, form-fitting clothing. Men: Thin fabric shorts (lycra/spandex-type swimsuit or compression bike shorts without padding. Woman: Lycra/spandex-type swimsuit or bike-style shorts and sports bra (no wire or padding). A swim cap will be provided to compress any air pockets within the hair. The entire process will take about ten (10) minutes.
