What’s in a number? A special day…a specific time…a size? Well, you may (or may not) be familiar with 21-15-9. To me, it’s like 6-6-6…or better known as The Devil. In CrossFit, this means the number of reps you do of a movement. That number needs to be completed BEFORE moving to the next number.
For example, yesterday’s WOD…
This WOD went as follows:
21 wall balls
21 push ups
15 wall balls
15 push ups
9 wall balls
9 push ups
21-15-9 always brings (at least to me) a little of anxiety. I just hate the idea of doing 21 of ANYTHING…only then to be followed by 15 and 9. But most CrossFitters might admit that those numbers represent a particular WOD that brings HIGH anxiety….FRAN!!!
What is Fran you ask? She is one of CrossFit’s Benchmark WODs (aka “Girls” or B***ch, as I usually refer to them). And it goes a little something like this….
I believe that women Rx is 65#.
This is that workout that you literally walk up to ANY CrossFitter and ask “What’s your Fran?” and you won’t be looked at like you have 3 heads!!!! Don’t ask me what my Fran is….I can tell you it’s NOTHING compared to what über CrossFit athletes get! Everybody is chasing Fran!!
Any way…no matter what movements/skills you put with it, I still love/hate 21-15-9. 😃
Do you like Fran?
Does 21-15-9 make YOU nervous???
