Fran is a classic example of a high intensity workout. The goal is to finish in under 7 minutes. If you have a compare to time that is around 6-7 minutes, re-test it with the same load. Go up in load IF your last attempt was under 5 minutes. Realistically, you should be able to complete the round of 21 in 3 sets max, and the round of 15 in a maximum of 3 sets as well. That goes for both the thrusters and the pull-ups. Again, today needs to be fast! Only a few breaks throughout the entire workout is the way to go. On the thrusters, remember that you’re more efficient when you keep the bar high on the shoulder until right after the hip forcefully opens. Then, when you are bringing the bar back down to the shoulders, wait to initiate the next squat until right when the barbell touches down on your shoulders. Efficiency on these 2 movements is key to being able to break off large sets and in turn, finish fast!
