Sunday – This was the most productive Sunday I’ve had in probably over 1 year. This was because some crazy sh*t happened, meaning I was driving to an open house and the open house was cancelled because it went under contract the night before, so I ended up at the gym stupid early. So I decided it was worth putting some effort in to.

15 Minutes to find a 1 rep max snatch – I got 130#

THEN

5 rounds for time:

10 push jerk (135/95) – I used 85#

50 double unders

15 handstand push ups

12 toes to bar

I got 17:21

Monday – REST DAY! I always coach Monday mornings, so I quickly can decide if I want to be put through hell on a Monday. And Mondays ALWAYS mean squats days, so I almost ALWAYS don’t go back to the gym later that day. So I cooked instead. I’m pretty sure I cooked 3 things, but I don’t remember.

Tuesday – This workout was done at 8 in the morning. EIGHT IN THE FREAKING MORNING. That’s the earliest I raised my heart rate in probably 2 years. And it was miserable. Thankfully it was spent with my girlfriend Katie who is one of the perkiest people ever. And she kicked my ass bad in the workout. I wish I had an excuse, but it’s just because I sucked.

3 min Max Distance Handstand Walk (mats) – I got 7 mats total

THEN

Power Clean into 2 x Squat Clean into Split Jerk ( 15 mins)
Dropping between cleans is allowed.
I got to 135#

THEN

12 min AMRAP OF:

200m Run

20 HSPU

30 KB Swings (70/55) – I used 45#

I got 3 rounds + 50m run

Wednesday

Push Press: 5-5-5-5-5. Add as you go. I got 115#

Between Sets:
5 x 5 Weighted Pull Ups / Max Effort Strict / 4 x Slow Negatives – I did 5 strict pull ups per round

THEN

For Time:

5 Push Jerk (155/105)

5 Toes To Bar

50 Double Unders

10 Push Jerk (155/105)

10 Toes To Bar

50 Double Unders

15 Push Jerk (155/105)

15 Toes To Bar

50 Double Unders

20 Push Jerk (155/105)

20 Toes To Bar

50 Double Unders

I got 9:36 using 85#

Thursday – REST DAY! Thursday was a travel day to San Diego. I landed, walked around Little Italy, showered since I hadn’t since doing the ice bucket challenge the night before, then grabbed some dinner somewhere in San Diego. I really had no idea where I was, ever.

Friday – REST DAY! I did a seal tour. Turns out they just bark a lot and push each other into the water. 

Saturday – REST DAY/DRINK DAY/EAT DAY. Workouts are overrated in a city that I could spend my entire time eating and drinking. So that’s what I did. Check out the blog tomorrow for my restaurant recommendations! I’m now in a sugar bloating coma, but in a good way.

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. In a world of obsessive unhealthy and disordered eating habits I am so thankful for your honest, fun, and hilarious blog (and instagram). With nutrition as the base you show that rest days, and eating for fun can also produce a healthy and fit demeanor. Because of your posts I scaled back religiously doing Crossfit 6x a week and eating 99.9% strict paleo. Since scaling back I look and feel 1000% better than I ever have. Thank you!!

  2. Is it just my post-weekend brain or are you missing something on Tuesdays WOD? What did you do with the cleans, and what was the run part of the kb workout? I like to use some of CF Broadways stuff via your blog so I am super curious! 🙂 Thanks, Juli!

      1. The post reads to me like:

        3 min Max Distance Handstand Walk (mats) – I got 7 mats total

        THEN

        Dropping between cleans is allowed.

        I got to 135#

        THEN

        12 min AMRAP OF:

        30 KB Swings (70/55) – I used 45#

        I got 3 rounds + 50m

        So it doesn’t mention the actual clean complex or that there’s a run, but thanks for the clarification! Must be my computer or something.

  3. Hi Juli,
    I’m coming to Denver this week and I’m celebrating my 30th bday, any recommendations for restaurants or fun things to check out?!? I already have sugar shop bake shop and the arepa food truck on my list 🙂

  4. I am inspired.

    Good eating, smart eating.

    Healthy body weight.

    Healthy mind!

    Wow——-the book by you and George comes on the 27th!

    YES!

  5. Juli – I second this request! I’ve always been really fit/strong from years of lifting but only in the past 6 months or so have I made pullups a real goal. I can *almost* do 1 unassisted but i have a long way to go until I can bang out a few reps. I’m tall (5’8″) with long arms and I feel like its just so much harder bc of that. I’ve tried a lot of techniques (daily pullup training military style, pullup training 2x a week and a lot of heavy back training on the other days, etc) but progress seems slow-going.

    Would love a post on pull-ups and tips/tricks to get better at them!

    1. honestly, practice makes perfect. i started with using an assisted pull up machine at a regular gym to build up some strength in my lats. then i started constantly practicing kipping pull ups and finally was able to get a strict pull ups. but it didn’t come over night. i worked at it for quite a while before i had the strength to do strict pull ups

  6. Hey Juli! With the workouts you do now, and not being in the gym all the time, do you feel you under eat? I workout 4-5 days a week totaling about an hour and a half each time. Usually I don’t keep track of calories or macros, but more or less I stick to paleo/zone. Recently I have kept track of my food and I seem to only eat 1100-1300 calories a day. Usually I eat a small snack for breakfast, and big lunch after the gym, then a medium dinner. I can’t seem to snack in the middle because I am just not hungry. I feel like this might be hindering fat loss/muscle gain. Any ideas?

    1. not really, i think i actually eat more on my rest days than i used to. some days i eat less, some days i eat more, all depending on what i’m doing and how busy i am. i wish i had better advice, but i do think i lost some weight when i actually ate more food.

  7. i really love your blog and been very kitchen inspired by your amazing recipes. i have also recently started crossfit & though i love it, my hands seem to disagree. how do you take care of your hands during all those pull ups?

    1. it gets better over time as you get better at holding on to the bar. i didn’t really do anything in the past to help my hands, they just kept getting better
