  • Thruster #95 men #65 Women
  • Pull ups

When Finished Extra Credit

3 Rds no time component

  • 25 Hip Extensions
  • 15 Knee to Elbows

This WOD is one of the staple WODs for CrossFit.  First and foremost make sure each rep counts, thrusters have to be full squat and full extension overhead and chin has to clear the bar with every pull up.  Dig deep and focus especially when the reps and breathing become a challenge.  Attack this WOD with everything that you have, however if you need to take a step back gather your breath, thoughts and keep working.  Aaron you’ve been waiting for it and here it is.  You know what to expect, attack it and get under that 8 min mark.

Thanks to Jolene and Miss Lite for coming in and joining in on some of the fun today.

  1. Aaron

    Three rounds, 21-15-9 reps, for time of:
    75 pound Thruster
    Pull-ups

    Time: 5:28 (PR by 4:38)

    Then, 3 rounds (un-timed): 25 hip extensions and 25 K2E (oops, thought it was 25 K2E)

    Feel good about the PR. Last time, did 9 rounds of 5…21-15-9 this time. All thrusters unbroken (lungs were screaming to break them up, but my mind won that battle). First 12 PUs felt great…was flying, but started falling apart from there. Lost a decent amount of time dropping from the bar, gasping for air, and resetting on the bar.

  2. Alright…Here’s my Fran! 🙂

    “Fran” (scaled)
    12-9-6
    45# Thrusters
    12-9-6
    Pull ups (strict)

    TIME = ~ 8:00

    I lost my stopwatch so I had to use the clock on the wall that doesn’t have a second hand. Last time I did Fran (which was my first time) was January 9th. Then I did 9 rounds of 5 with 35# thrusters and gravitron-assisted pullups (with I think 60# of assistance). This time I did less reps, but did strict pullups. That’s what kept my time down. After a while, my muscles just won’t let me do more than one pullup at a time!

  3. Great job Aaron, man I’m so proud of you. You said you were going to do it and you did. However, you said your goal was sub 8 minutes, you definitely did that. Yeah I will be there the majority of the day, so if you want hit me up so we can get you going. Great work!!!.
