A few easy steps will help you heal your “Murph” hand tear FAST. Here’s how!
If you’re not already familiar, “Murph” is known as one of CrossFit’s hardest Hero WODs. It’s done in honor of fallen LT Michael P. Murphy, U.S. Navy, often on Memorial Day– as is the case at CrossFit9. (Read more about the life and service of LT Murphy here.)

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty-pound vest or body armor, wear it. (If you plan to scale “Murph”, check out our videos on modifying running, pull-ups, push-ups, and squats!)
Those 100 pull-ups are the perfect opportunity for a hand tear, even if you’ve followed our steps in Part 1: How to Prevent Hand Tears During “Murph”. Ouch!
Coach Lindsay is here with her best tips to heal up as fast as possible and get back to training normally.
