Weekly Workouts

Who watched the CrossFit Regional this weekend? I did not. But my Facebook sure kept me updated. I know that Stacie Tovar wore white shorts, that Julie Foucher tore her achilles and that some girl dislocated her knee. I also saw lots of people face plant trying to jump over the bar to the finish line. Didn’t they see all the other CrossFit Regional people already face plant? You think they would have learned. But then again, your brain doesn’t function well during heavy lifts. And obviously the body doesn’t seem to either with all these people falling apart. This is exactly why I love the light weight approach to CrossFit. I gotta keep this body together. Now let’s talk about the week!

Sunday – CrossFit Class – I don’t remember what I did. I think it had power snatches and burpees in it. And I gave about 30% because that’s all I really have to give on a Sunday.

Monday – CrossFit Class – Every year, we do the workout called Murph on Memorial Day. Many CrossFit gyms do the same thing. It’s a hero workout that can look and be pretty daunting. Hence why we do it once a year on that certain day. You can totally break it up however you’d like, but we recommend our athletes to do 20 rounds of the workout “Cindy” which is 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats. The workout took me 43:47 which I’m happy with since the first time I ever did it, it took me over an hour and the best time I ever did it in was about 36 minutes. Right in the middle and happy as a clam.


1 mile run

100 pull ups

200 push ups

300 air squats

1 mile run

Tuesday – Rest Day – The Memorial Day workout made me so incredibly sore. Like, SO sore. Push ups are the worst. I hate them. My legs didn’t hurt whatsoever and my shoulders felt broken. Makes no sense.

Wednesday – CrossFit Class – Wanna have a sore bum? This will do the trick! What is it about lunges that make your butt so much more sore than squats? Riddle me that. Also, remember how I told you last week that I vomited everywhere at a concert. I also threw up in my mouth during this workout. That sh*t just didn’t want to leave my system. Lovely.

5 sets of each of the following – Alternating: (For Total Reps)

30 sec Max Muscle Ups / Strict Pull Ups – 30 sec REST – I did strict pull ups

30 sec Max HS Walk (mats) / 30 sec HS Hold – 30 sec REST – I did handstand walks

15-12-9 Reps Of:

Front Rack Lunges (135/95) – I used 75#

HSPU (kipping allowed)

12-9-6 Reps Of:

Front Rack Lunges (135/95)

HSPU (kipping allowed)

50 Double Unders Between Rounds

I finished in 14:36 using 75#

Thursday – CrossFit Class – Dude. This workout. So incredibly uncomfortable.  I said the F word at least 27 times. Whenever I feel like I may pass out, I say f*ck, f*dge, holy shart, effin A, and I hate my life. But then I always finish my workout. Saying offensive things really does make a difference. Try this workout out, she’s a beaut.

Deadlifts:  (14 mins) – 2 min rest between sets.

Max Reps at 85% – I used 175#

Max Reps at 80% – I used 165#

Max Reps at 75% – I used 155#

Max Reps at 70% – I used 145#


Every 3 mins for 5 sets. (Score is slowest time in any one set)

200m Run

12 Burpees

12 Hang Power Clean (135/95)

My slowest time was 2:30 using 85#

Friday – Rest Day – I decided to take a rest day and get a massage. I recently got a monthly membership to make sure I would get massages on a regular basis. I have a knot in my left butt cheek the size of a golf ball. No joke. And there’s no breaking that sh*t up. No pun intended. Ew. So I’m getting massages on the reg in hopes of breaking this giant knot into small knots then hopefully having a normal butt cheek someday. But this grumpy masseuse I had made my massage totally miserable for the entire 2 hours. Why can’t you be mean, then nice then mean then nice? She was constantly mean. At one point, she massaged the front of my neck in the form of pinching it. I’m pretty sure this b*tch just straight up hated me. And I still tipped her well. I regret that.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. We did murph on memorial day too. I thought I was gonna die. Finished in 57:50 with doing real pushups and strict pullups with one red band. My legs were fine the next day and shoulders were dead!! I couldn’t even sleep because I was in so much pain

  2. I’m pretty sure that deck of cards workout sounds amazing. I must incorporate it into my routine. Thanks!

  3. Haha, I love that you cuss during workouts! Everytime I miss a lift, I yell b*tch and it makes me feel a little less defeated! PS. the video of Jackson playing with that tiny dog is the BEST!

  4. After doing Murph I was legit sore for the whole week. Like it hurt to sit down/get up and walk. It was the most sore I have been in a long, long time. That Thursday workout sounds like a good one!

  5. I did murph for the first time this year solo! Holy balls, why did I do it?!! Last year I did it with a partner and it was nothing compared to what I felt last week. I also did it in order. I do NOT recommend this. 200 push-ups are brutal! It took me 73 min. Not the time I wanted, but I’ll try again next year.

  6. massage is a good thing. I always recommend it to my clients but I’m the one, who always postpones it. And when I finally get to a massage I promise myself I won’t wait that long before the next one. Then it happens quite often 😀
    I wish I had more money and more freetime at the same time but usually I can’t have both 😀
