Today we come back to Fran, “The mother of all benchmark WOD’s”. Or, seemingly so. If you want to know where a Crossfitter’s fitness level, often times the first question asked is “What is your Fran time”. You cannot generalize their over-all fitness level or how effective they are with each energy system, but there is something about a Fran time that often proves to give a good guesstimate where someone is at.

Aside from all of that, it happens to be my favorite benchmark WOD. A perfect, short, explosive, push-pull 21-15-9 WOD. Be sure to check your old Fran time if you have one and set a goal for today.
