Marianne is a 24:00 AMRAP CrossFit workout consisting of clean & jerks, pull-ups, and wall balls in honor of Marianne Provost.
Hi there! Just wanted to pop in with a little motivation Monday post! Hope all the moms out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day and everyone spoiled their moms a little. My sister had her college graduation on Friday, celebration dinner Friday night, her graduation party on Saturday, and then we had Mother’s Day brunch on Sunday. You could definitely say it was a fun weekend of a lot of celebrating, eating, and drinking. A workout on Monday is much needed to start me off on the right foot.
We did this workout last week at CrossFit. It was in honor of Marianne Provost who tragically took her own life on April 24, 2016 due to intimidation and bullying. Her father is a member of CrossFit Chambly and they performed the workout the same day. I love the community of CrossFit and this shows how everyone supports each other. CrossFits across the world performed the workout to help raise awareness about the effects of bullying.

4 clean & jerks (185/125#)
16 wallballs (20/14#)
The way the workout works is you have 24 minutes to complete as many rounds of 4 clean & jerks, 20 pull-ups, and 16 wallballs as possible. The clean & jerks are definitely heavy. We used 70% of our 1 rep max clean & jerk at our gym. If you don’t have pull-ups you can do assisted pull-ups with bands or ring rows. You can scale wallballs by using a lighter weight.
I used 85# since that is about 70% of my 1RM. I did pull-ups the whole time and didn’t rip which was awesome. I keep the same rep scheme the whole time too (7-7-6), which I was also really pumped about. I did all the wallballs unbroken each round. I ended up with 7 rounds and 8 pull-ups.
Give this one a go and let me know how it goes!
