Re: Reducing FRAN

I would scale the thrusters to a weight you can do unbroken. I have a respectable RX time for a woman (4:54) but did my last Fran with 55 lbs cus I was pretty certain I could go unbroken and did. Should have pushed harder through the pull ups for a sub 4, so close. I wanted to know what it felt like.

Scale it. Work on getting stronger and hit it hard RXd when you are ready.

Re: Reducing FRAN

forget about 'Fran'. Focus on good programming and eating well.

Re: Reducing FRAN

It seems to me like the point of CrossFit is to increase fitness, the byproduct of which happens to include a faster Fran time. If you were to concentrate all of your efforts on the movements involved in Fran, then you would be neglecting all else.

Keep at it! If it's a strength issue, lift more. If it's an "OMYGAWDMYLUNGSAREONFIRE" problem, well, I'll get back to you on that.

Thumbs up Re: Reducing FRAN

Thanks for all the advice looks like I'll be scaling with little rest until I get a stronger squat and press
