First Day of Class: Met Fran

I just finished my 6 class two week On Ramp last week and went yesterday for my first class. What do I get, Fran

We did partners and I'd like to think I did pretty good for my very first full class. I completed the workout in 11:28 with 65lbs. and assisted pull ups. I am definitely feeling it today but I logged and plan on doing a better time when she comes to visit again.

Nicely done and for sure, be happy with finishing any workout, speed and more weight will come! Keep up the good work!

9 months in for me, have not met Fran yet but have met a whole bunch of other tough ladies!

Hey Adam - keep on working! I've been at Crossfit Triton in Wallingford for close to 7 months. The improvements in the beginning will be drastic, just focus on your form and don't worry about weights and times right now.
With the pullups - as soon as you are able to get a couple unassisted, get rid of the band. No matter how long it takes you to do the WOD you will be helping yourself in the end by doing them unassisted.

I would agree, get off the band as soon as you can and if you have to, cut the reps down but do the legit pull ups and you'll see your ability to crank them out go up quickly.

Re: First Day of Class: Met Fran

Fran. I met her in a shady little gym in South Texas. Been Crossfit for a few months- was away from my box or any other affiliate, so I went to a small local gym and chose Fran. Awful. Amazing. In desperate need of improvement.


Nice job on finishing!! Keep it up!!

Re: First Day of Class: Met Fran

Good job! Like the previously said, try and work off the band as soon as you can. I saw a huge decrease in my time as soon as I got off the band and got my kipping pull-ups (somewhat) down. Did wonders for my confidence, since it did kick my butt the first time. Keep up the good work!
