Fran has been showing up everywhere over the last few days. Several mobility pieces many of you already know and love specific to improving positioning for thrusters, and Fran times were being discussed on Mobility WOD. Fran was the workout on the main site, and then this video (WMV/MOV) with Tony Budding discussing main site programming came out. Tony described Fran as “the classic CrossFit benchmark” and “a great way to start the year”. He’s absolutely right. Fran is probably the most famous CrossFit workout, and whether this is your first time or fiftieth taking this test, it’s great to see where you stand, and be able to check your improvement later.
We’re pairing Fran with the Baseline workout in order to test your ability to recover. Think of these back to back sprint metcons as a form of hellacious interval training. Even after completing Fran, with a fair amount of recovery time you should have your mind on at least matching your best Baseline score, if not beating it.
We last did Fran back on May 27th, and we did Double Fran on October 29th. Baseline came up on October 26th, as we tried to get through it as many times as possible in 15 minutes. Check your PRs, and prepare to smash them.
