It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen Fran. The reason, I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to program it. Basically, what do I program it with? No one wants to front squat before Fran, and she leaves you too smashed to really do quality skill work afterwards. I’ve had this 1RM jerk dialed in for a while, and it hit me, this is the time for Fran! Heavy jerks and light thrusters are a great training stimulus, and the jerk isn’t nearly as taxing as a squat or deadlift. Perfect! Or at least we’ll find out if it is tomorrow.

Scotty Rum’s Karaoke Night Fundraiser… With a Twist! On March 9th Scott Rumrill is hosting a HUGE karaoke night at Copperfield’s, next to CrossFit Fenway. Admission is $20, and all proceeds go to Scott’s fundraising effort for the American Liver Foundation. The twist? Sure, you can just do some good ol’ fashioned karaoke, or for a $5 donation you can pick a song and the person who sings it! Immunity from being chosen to sing is available for an additional $10 donation at the door. There will also be delicious barbecue courtesy of SoulFire. If you can’t make it, but would still like to donate, Scott’s fundraising page is here.
