Crossfit is one of the biggest and fastest growing trends in the fitness world right now.
I haven’t jumped on board and never will.
I’m not Crossfit affiliated.
Just too much I don’t like about it.
But, at the same time, I do like a lot of things about Crossfit as well.
I like and respect the fact that they have created a sport in its own, which is basically Crossfit it self.
The games are coming up in less than a month and I’m a stickler for competition!
I’ve decided that next year, I will gun for the games and give it a shot.
I will continue to train as I do and see what happens.
Just the other day i thought I’d give one of their signature benchmark workouts a try.
It’s called “FRAN” and basically it a test of time to complete 21-15-9 reps of 95lbs Thruster and Kipping Pull Ups.
It really gets the lungs a burning and legs screaming.
I enjoyed it.
I believe the best time ever is under 2:00 minutes. I wanted to get under 3 mins.
I went after it and got 2:49. Not bad. Considering I do do Crossfit…
Check out the video:
I’ll be trying the other benchmark workouts as well to see where I stack up against other times.
I think it will be fun and challenging!
Exactly what you need when you want to work hard!
Stay tuned for Week 10 – Day 1 of LEAN and MEAN!!!
Get Forged Strong!
