How does my Fran hold up?

Hey I'm 16 years old and I have just started with crossfit.
My MMAtrainer kept talking about the workout Fran so last sunday I gave it a try and got the time 7.59.
How does that time hold up concerning that I've only been doing CF for like 3 weeks and that I'm 16.

Sounds good for your first effort!

Start an account and post it into "logsitall" and you can see how it compares to other people.

Re: How does my Fran hold up?

Assuming it was as rx'd (as prescribed) weight and such, that sounds like a great time for your first go at it. I'd like to know what your weight/height is as it allows people to guesstimate how much work you did more or less.

www.logsitall.com (w/fs...same link as above) has been a great tool for me. Keep track of your stats and see what others have accomplished.

Re: How does my Fran hold up?

3:00 is the gold standard for Fran. 5:00 indicates a good athlete, 4:00 is very good (many people get to around 4:00-4:30 and stay there, its a very good time). ~8:00 is a good starting point for sure.

The world record is 2:17 by the way.

Welcome, Henrik. You're Fran time is excellent given your age and the fact that you've been Crossfitting for only 3 months. You English is pretty good too.

I don't think that one's Fran time is very indicative of athleticism, unless you define athleticism as the ability to tear through Fran.

Re: How does my Fran hold up?

Scott,
I think what Oliver is indicating is Fran is a measuring stick for CrossFitters. Can't seem to get two together without the proiverbial "What's your Fran time?" Coming up. I'm thinking it should be our official secret code phrase.

Henrik,
Your time is a good first go at Fran. That being said your time being good or not is entirely dependent on your range of motion throughout the workout.

Re: How does my Fran hold up?

Great time at such a young age. Blasting thru pain at 16 is not given to everyone.

You're right there buddy.

Makes me remember about my first Fran...

Re: How does my Fran hold up?

Ugh.. Fran introduced me to crossfit. I remember writing down the workout thinking, "this shouldn't be too bad."


famous last words.

Ok.
My height is 178 cm's and weight is 74 kg's.
Around 5.11 and 160 pounds I guess.

It sounds eerily like "How much do you bench?" Scary.

Being sixteen doesn't matter. If you're doing workouts as rx'd then you're a good deal ahead of most adults, anyways. Not to mention, you've got lots of time to improve.
