From the CrossFit main site today, Jason “Rhabdo” Kaplan from Guerilla Fitness in Montclair NJ puts up a 1:53 “Fran”!!!  ANIMAL!  I’d venture to say this is one of the most remarkable physical feats in recent history.  Disagree?  Think I’m exaggerating?  Those who have done Fran know how remarkably challenging this is.  Those who haven’t, just try it.  Watch his core-to-extremity efficiency and power in the Thrusters.  Notice his hips FULLY extend prior to the weight leaving his chest.  The previous fastest time recorded was 2:02 and it was messy.  This was as legitimate as it gets (weight fully over head–not out front, and chin well above bar for pullup)
