3-4 Rounds Not for Time:
130m Jog/1:00 Bike/1:00 Row
5 Kip Swings, then in later sets 3-5 Pull-Ups, or practice
5 Thrusters, first set empty bar then building to work weight or slightly above
Use this time to “rev up the engine,” firm up a plan, and get in the right mindset.

This is the classic CrossFit couplet that has inspired and hooked so many CrossFitters over the years. So simple, yet so potent. The intention is for this to be brutally fast. The fastest times world-wide are completed unbroken and under 2 minutes. Scale accordingly. However, as always, there’s is room to gut out Rx’ing a benchmark such as this at a load or degree of difficulty that’s at the edge of your ability so you might also consider that when deciding what your “Fran” will look like today. Top athletes complete the reps unbroken and with minimal rest but your (and my) Fran might be very different. If you can do the 21 thrusters unbroken but then you wind up in a world of shit for the 21 Pull-Ups, then you should probably break those Thrusters up! Do you rest too much during the 15s? Have a strategy to minimize rest like: 3-5 breaths between sets or a controlled 3-5 count in your head. In any case, have a plan that is honest to your level of ability. Let your judge know your plan and ask them to help keep you to it. And as always, have fun!
Scale volume on the Pull-Ups (15-9-6 or 9-6-3) or to Ring Rows (with head inside!) as needed. Use lighter bars and larger bumps as available to save the 10s and 15s! There is a 10:00 cap on this workout.

Saturday, July 27th: Pupstarz Adoption Event
PupStarz Rescue invites everyone to get into a different kind of “beast mode” on Saturday, July 27th, right here at CrossFit South Brooklyn. We will be bringing adorable and adoptable pups for meet and greets.
Location: Crossfit South Brooklyn, 597 Degraw St.
PupStarz Rescue is an all-volunteer animal welfare group committed to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs and cats in public shelters at high risk of euthanasia, as well as those in danger of abuse. We are committed to rescuing as many animals as possible, saving over 1,875 dogs and cats since 2015.
We will have everything from large pups to small pups, from young ones to older ones and just about everything in between! This event is also open to the public to stop in and check out the adoptables as well. Our latest adoptables are listed here.
We suggest that you fill out an application on our site before the event in order to be pre-approved if you are eager to adopt and take your pup home that day! We do require 3 references and a Facetime homecheck before adoption.
We will be posting the dogs that are confirmed for the event a few days before.
For questions please email us at rescue [at] pupstarzrescue.org.
Who knows? You might just find your future swolemate!
