Kipping Pull-UpsOk...it's time to pick on another "girl. How about... oh, I know...how about FRAN!
Nothing can prepare you for how Fran makes you feel. It's by far the most
intense of the Crossfit workouts that I have encountered. She is a beast and
make no mistake. In some respects, each time gets harder because I know what
effect it will have on my body...and that makes me quite apprehensive.
Still, the sense of acheivement is worth it. As Igo back through my notes of
workouts, the first time I Rx'd Fran, Feb. of 2010, my time was 12:18. My latest
PR on Fran was 5:29. I'm pretty happy with that time...for the moment. I'll be
elated when I can get a sub 4 minute time. Lol!, If only it were that easy.
That being said, here are 2 videos that do a great job on teaching the techniques of
the kipping pull-ups. Be sure to speak up and ask any of the coaches for suggestions
towards getting the kipping pull-ups.
And don't be intimidated by Fran...she's just a "GIRL". :0)
Aren't these athletes just incredible?
