After Crossfitting for nearly 4 months, I finally got my first go at Fran:
Three rounds, 21-15- and 9 reps, for time of:
- 95 pound Thruster
I know a lot of people can knock this out in under 4 minutes.
I’m not one of those people (yet).
My first go at Fran was completed in 6:46. And it wasn’t even as prescribed. I knocked out all of the thrusters as prescribed with 95 lbs, but I’m still doing jumping pull ups. I’m easily the strongest guy in my Crossfit Central 5:30 a.m. class, but I’m still not strong enough to pull up my 260 lb body.
I’m going to have to lose 40-50 lbs before I think I can start on unassisted pull-ups.
Bet time in our class (Zac) was 4:29. Slowest time was somewhere just over 8 minutes.
Before Fran we did our normal CF Warmup, but then followed the warmup with about 4-5 minutes of jump rope trying to work on our double-unders technique.
After Fran, we finished with 3 rounds of:
- 25 situps
- 15 med ball slams
- 50 med ball Russian twists
