7:36 good for FRAN?

Just wondering what the average people get on this workout?

I know someone has done it in 2mins or something ridiculous like that but just curious how I size up.
My kip technique really needs work so I had to scale them but Im hoping its a reasonable time?

Re: 7:36 good for FRAN?

It's a little on the slow side. According to beyond the whiteboard the highest part of the normal-ish distribution is around 5-6 minutes. that's 296 people. 283 from 6-7. 248 from 7-8. 270 4-5. 201 3-4 and 54 between 2 and 3 minutes.

It starts trailing off though so it's not really a normal curve. So it depends on if you're comparing with the mean, median, or mode

Mine is around 8 though so 7:36 is good from my perspective

how did you scale them? lowered the reps? weight? would be hard to compare unless you do the standard. unless you scaled according to the different levels in the brandx scaling. would then maybe need to see the times over there.

regardless, just crush your time next time and you'll know you've put in a good effort

You're in luck! The thread linked below has a Fran time distribution and discussion about the graph.

7 min or so is just fine, but as pointed out, what's most important is that next time you do better.

Re: 7:36 good for FRAN?

that's not scaled. so well done!
scaling would be less weight or reps throughout the whole workout.
(band assisted pull ups/50#thrusters for example)

Solid work, keep at it.

I can't even do it scaled yet and it is still brutal.

Re: 7:36 good for FRAN?

My first Fran took me over 10:00 minutes.

All that matters is that you do it faster the next time around.

It took me 9:01 for my first attempt. Not sure how often you've done it.

Re: 7:36 good for FRAN?

My first Fran took me 15:00, and that was 85 pounds.
I'm down to 3:00 now as rx'd. Just get stronger at your squat, your press, your metcon, and your pullups, and your Fran time will drop dramatically.
