Johnny Parr – post #fran 

A: 1RM Cluster



  • Thrusters at 50% of A (Rx 42/30)
  • Pull-ups – no bands today, it is either kipping pull-ups or ring rows
Sharing is Caring ;)

    6:46 RX. A 4 second PB and might be my first time RX. Boy does Fran take it out of you!

  • Amanda C says:

    A. 46kg. Tried 50kg but couldn’t get it overhead. Was happy to get under the 50kg clean though.
    B. DNF 8/9 thrusters @ 25kg and ring rows (8 minutes). Still an improvement considering that my last scaled Fran time was around 11mins.

  • Leanne says:

    New 1RM thruster of 40kg = happy

    Beat my old Fran time by 36secs at same scaled weight of 20kg… Super tight and legit ring rows… Even no-repped myself on one of them👏
    Feeling it now… And I have to work tonight OUCH!!

  • zacbax says:

    A. 80kg equal 1rm but had no interest in trying to break it just getting ready for fran

    B. 6:10 rx absolutely stoked with this time it was 4:38 quicker then my fractured fran from 2 weeks ago. Big thanks to matt for coaching me through it and not letting me rest for long

  • Ben M says:

    A) 82kg, 6kg PR today
    B) 4:44, almost a 1 minute PB, this is the first time ive done Fran at Adapt, i did it once in Japan at a globo, its nice having a decent pull up bar.
    Still it was tough.

    I love Saturdays… and I’ve been looking forward to Fran for weeks!
    A) 82kg (pb by 2kg)
    B) 5:17 rx – PB by a bit -previous was 7:01! Huge improvement!
    C) cashed out with Annie – PB 5:33 and made the whiteboard!
    Awesome work by the Sat crew.

  • charnel says:

    A: 60 kg – a 5kg PB. I’m pretty happy with that 🙂
    B: Finished in 7.20 – 30kg thrusters and ring rows.

  • Karl Buchhorn says:

    2:47 for me today. Quite a big PR.

      Awesome work

    • john parr says:

      It’s fun been the cover photo

      A: worked up to 80kg, Attempted 90kg but no dice

      B: PRed something epic. Last time did fran 5min, today 4:34.

      On a random note I used to G2 bar today and after the 21 thrusters coach B pointed that out and loaded the bar accordingly. Which means I did 82kg and attempted 92kg.

  • TarrynC says:

    A: 50kg cluster, 2.5kg PB!

    B: 7:48 with 25kg and ring rows. Happy to finish. Looked at the clock at 6 minutes and pushed myself to make sure I finished. Last time I did Fran was 12 months ago and I worked at 20kg with jumping pull ups and I did it in 4:39. Not sure how much of an improvement that is…

    • TarrynC says:

      Ok so looking at my past with Fran, that attempt 12 months ago was done with a push press only so I feel better about my improvement now.

      Fractured Fran at the end of October last year I used an empty bar and ring rows and got 7:58 so 3:58 Fran time.

    We did Outlaw training this afternoon which had Fran programmed for the WOD (to my complete disgust – thought I was getting away with not doing it today)
    We also had 1RM Snatch, Clean & Jerk and a 3RM front squat beforehand, so I went something like this…
    PB Snatch @ 52kg then @ 53kg (+3kg) YAY!
    Did a 1RM Cluster instead of Clean & Jerk – PB 60kg, +20kg from previous recorded (didn’t go to failure because front squats and Fran were still to come and looks like I’m doing Fran Rx! D’oh)
    Did a 1RM front squat instead of 3RM as my 1,2&3RM are all currently at 70 – PB for 1RM @ 75kg, failed 80.
    And onto Fran.. was really nervous to do this as it’s my first time Rx (abd Coach B was counting my reps) – last time was modified with front squats @25kg & jumping pullups (as I was on bands and only had 40kg thruster) in 4:04.
    Today, I didn’t finish in 8min time cap (didn’t expect to or even want to!!) but finished the thrusters unbroken in the round of 9, only had pullups to go and I mentally and physically finished right there on the buzzer. No really Coach B, I’m done..
    Thrusters (11,6,5) (5,5,5) 9 unbroken
    Pullups 2,2 and.. singles – got rid of the extra kip before each single so cycled through a little quicker.
    Won’t be doing that again in a hurry but I reckon I’ll finish in the time cap the next time I do!
    Great arvo session with the crew 😀
