CrossFit benchmark workouts such as the Fran CrossFit workout are a great way to test your athletic endurance and strength.
Have you ever tried the CrossFit Benchmark WOD Fran?
If not, I encourage you to give it a shot.
It’s fast. It’s furious. It’s one hell of a workout that will leave you breathless on the floor of your gym.
But, you’ll feel like a regular bada** at the end of the workout.
Tips for Practicing the Fran CrossFit WOD
This benchmark WOD is supposed to be fast, and leave you feeling tanked at the end, but in a good way. The weight should be enough that your muscles are putting in the work, but not so heavy that you’re not able to do the repetitions unbroken.
If you’re unable to do the workout without breaking it up then try doing it in a way that will allow for minimal rest between sets so you keep your heart rate high. This WOD should leave you gasping for air because you’ve pushed yourself as fast as you could safely go.
Scaling Options for the Fran WOD
Dumbbell Thrusters (2×15#/10#)
