The onsie voting is still going on and I can’t help but feel for the Fran Onsie.  Poor thing is getting creamed and to tell you the truth it deserves it.  Fran is a brutal CrossFit staple and has done its share of creaming.  For once it’s nice to see Fran taking some lumps.  If you have been to a level 1 cert. you know what I’m talking about.  If you haven’t been but CrossFit regularly you probably know what I’m talking about.  If you know the WOD but haven’t done it you at least get the significance of this custom CrossFit puke rag.  If you have no clue what I am talking about keep reading.  Afterward you’ll understand why Eliza and I made the shirt.  Fran is the name of an awful CrossFit bench mark workout and badge of honor.  In regular globo gyms guys ask, “What’s your bench?”  In CrossFit gyms everyone asks, “What’s your Fran time?”  What every CrossFitter means by asking this question is, how fast can you complete 21 then 15 then 9 thrusters (95m, 65f) and pull ups.  Fran is 90 reps of hell.  Depending on your take of the thruster (full front squat into a push press) you could even call it 135 reps.  Recently, I saw a video of some maniac do Fran in less than 2 minutes.  Me, I’m not that good (4:20), but that’s way down from my first attempt (9:58).  Best I’ve seen in person, 2:54.  What I’m working toward is a sub 4.  Bottom line is Fran is a bad bitch, and Gator will be wearing that onsie every time it’s not soaked or stained in baby juice, especially when daddy is wearing his Fran Shirt.  If you CrossFit and haven’t done this WOD, what are you waiting for?  If you don’t CrossFit at all, what are you waiting for? Life is way too short to not being doing short bouts of high intensity training.
