Ideally “Fran” is a sprint. This benchmark WOD has been done more than any CrossFit workout out there. It’s a good workout that motivates you to go faster and comes down to nothing more than moving continuously as fast as possible. It’s a mental struggle that has to be fought to hold onto the bar, speed up the thrusters, and not stop for a breath. Physically this WOD becomes temporarily more uncomfortable the faster you go. At some point if you CrossFit you have to do this. It’s almost a “rite of passage” workout. Congrats to all who completed this for their first time today, to all who hit a PR and to the couple (Laura and Willy) who RX’d it for their first time. Beasts all of you!
