I am a high school football coach and my team is using some of the named workouts as motivators. For example, finish Fran as RX'd in a certain amount of time and you get a t-shirt w/ FRAN on the front. It probably sounds silly, but the kids are really fired up about having a shirt w/a girls name on the front and then getting to explain what it means. The problem is coming up with times that are reasonable for them to accomplish, but not easy enough for everyone to get a shirt. I looked around on the forums etc, but couldn't find a place where it said what good times were. Any suggestions?

Greg - I'll take a first stab. A sub 3 min Fran is pretty titanic and the gold standard for elite of you ask me. I would think that for some high school bucks, a sub 4 minute FRAN would result in a few tee-shirts, maybe very few, and would take a lot of work to achieve. Maybe a sub-5 is more realistic.

Some others can chime in on some of the other girls. I think 20 rds for Cindy is a nice benchmark, but that's probably because I only recently broke that. I'll have to look at my times for some others.

20 rounds is serious. I agree that Cindy's a nice benchmark; something like 17-18 rounds might be a more plausible target. There's only so much improvement you can make in the short term.

I keep a list of fastest and average times found in historical wods for future reference and goals.

You could always just get the kids to do the girls, and then set prizes based on the first round times...

it will give you a better idea of what your kids are capable of.

20 rounds is serious! I like that because I have just managed 20 rounds.Compared to 14 rounds 2 years ago it is a sigh of sure and steady progress!

James Napier,

Can I get a copy of that list, please?

I'm looking to put together a list of the named WODs and what a level 1-4 standard might be.

Franklin,

If you do put such a list together, I would appreciate it if you posted it. I'm also a high school coach, albeit for cheerleading, and I think that that could be beneficial for me as well.

Thanks.

Why not use the old but good CFNorth standards?
