Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg shared his Murphy Challenge , a series of exercises honoring a lieutenant who died in Afghanistan.
Mark Zuckerberg commemorated the so-called ‘Memorial Day’ in the United States and sharedhis exercise routine on Facebook .
In honor of Army Lt. Michael P. Murphy, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2005, the Meta CEO shared his time-honoured challenge, but this time he was not alone, but with his two youngest daughters.
A demanding routine
The technologist shared images of his training on the social network he created.
“One of Lt. Murphy’s favorite workouts was to run a mile, then do 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and then run another mile, all while wearing a 20-pound backpack,” he notes.
As he tells, this year he made a new record: everything in 39:58 minutes. His daughters, he adds, completed a quarter of the challenge in just 15 minutes.
The publication also contains two photographs: a selfie of Zuckerberg with all the fatigue and sweat, while in the other image his daughters Máxima and August are doing push-ups.
Mark Zuckerberg exercises constantly and mentions it on his social networks.
In addition to being a successful martial arts apprentice, he also competes in semi-professional tournaments, causing great acceptance in this world.
In the comments section of the post, Zuckerberg conceded that running the last mile of the challenge “was pretty brutal” because “his legs were burnt from the squats and your heart rate is flat.”
