Monday Sept. 22, 2014

 

CrossFit (6am/7am/10am/12:15pm/5:30pm)

 

We meet again…

 

“Fran”

 

21-15-9

Thrusters 65/95

Pull-ups

 

12 min. cap

 

I know what some of you are thinking…a 12 minute cap!?  Yes.  And that is a very generous cap.  Everyone wants to test themselves with Fran by doing it as prescribed—21/15/9 reps for time of thrusters and pull-ups at 95lbs for the guys, 65lbs for the gals. The best CrossFitters in the world can do this workout in around 2 minutes. The purpose of the workout is to be a sprint, to achieve that metcon burn that will leave you on the ground, gasping for air. As such, you need to choose a weight that is appropriate. There is no point in going RX with Fran if you are going to be spending just as much time resting as you are working. Doing Fran with an RX weight is a great accomplishment, but if you’re taking 15 minutes or longer to do it then you’ve missed the point of the workout—you’ve lowered the intensity, and you certainly won’t be on the floor at the end of it (side note: collapsing on the floor covered in sweat coughing up phlegm and wondering what just happened is always a good sign that you’ve picked scaled appropriately).
