Re: Fran Best Time Ever?

Kevin, not to be a buzzkill, but I've watched Caity's video twice now, and while I applaud her effort and intensity, and please correct me if I'm wrong, she seems to be a number of reps short of a full "Fran." Of course, my math could be crap.

Re: Fran Best Time Ever?

You guys did look at the main site comments yesterday to see Speal's time, right?



Max, amazing work, but I'd work on squat depth.

Re: Fran Best Time Ever?

Jacob, I saw Speal's time yesterday too and was jaw droppingly impressed. I smell an underdog somewhere...

Speal's time is phenomenal! 6 more seconds and there'll be the first sub 2 fran!

Your math is not crap. She's 6 thrusters and 7 pullups short. First round was 19 and 15, second round 12 and 13, and third round was 8 and 10.

Re: Fran Best Time Ever?

I saw Speal do a 2:14 and it was legit. He posted a 2:05 on saturday.

My apologies - I guess I never bothered to count the reps in that vid when they posted it. Knowing Caity, I'm positive that she wasn't intentionally shaving reps, probably just got too amped up and lost count.

Also knowing Caity, it'll probably be re-done soon, and faster. She's possibly the most competitive person I've met.
