I plan on doing the "triple murph" WOD tommarow, which calls for 6 miles, 300 pullups, 600 pushups, and 900 squats, i was wondering if this is going to hinder me losing weight because it is high volume, i also did a refeed today, since i have been doing 50-70 grams per day, didnt want to risk losing muscle during this workout. Any advice is much appreciated.

If you were do do the triple murph everyday then yes I would think it'd be bad for weight loss. Not because of the volume, but because of the cortisol response.

I love pushing myself beyond my limits, and as long as it is done occasionally then I don't think it has any negative effect, and likely will have a lot of advantages in terms of enabling your longer term goals of entering the military. I did swab summer at the Naval Academy -- Very few organized exercises had anything other than a sack for weight. Military tends to stress high volume body weight (plus sack) exercises. If that is your goal, train to it.

That being said, Triple Murph is so far beyond anything we were ever asked to do. So I would do it occasionally as a challenge.

Why would you do this? Once your body is pushed past the point that you have used all glycogen it will begin to convert anything and everything into fuel regardless of how much you eat. Amino Acids found in protein and muscle tissue are some of the easiest to convert to glucose in a state of emergency.
