Our Member Yanessa Ayra killed it this morning on hitting her p.r. for Fran with a 2:56 time.! What is the big deal about FRAN and what is a good strategy to achieve the fastest time possible?!The big deal? EVERYTHING.
Lets start out with the definition of ‘Fran’.
Thrusters @ 65lbs. for females and 95lbs. for males
Fran is a CrossFit Benchmark workout, most elite athletes on the planet will tell you that the way they do Fran is ‘UNBROKEN’. That means, whenever they start a round they go non stop until all of the repetitions of that given round are completed. They repeat this process 6 times until the workout is complete. Our member Yanessa not only did it unbroken but in Elite time! less than 3 min! Beast Mode
Here is link to the video!
Last weekend Lauren Herzog, Yanessa Ayra, Giann Moramarco and our head trainer Joe Berrones competed at the battle of the box in Naples FL
CrossFit RGTC walked away with an overall finish of 10th out of 24 teams! WOOP WOOP!
