  53. Baden says:

    5:56 rx

  54. KC says:

    13:54: 55#, skinny red.
    Not sure how I feel about this. Last fran was on 09/23, time was 11:55 @ 45# and blue band. This time around was definitely a lot heavier, made it harder to maintain the intensity Todd was looking for. I’ll reserve judgement until we do another Fran.

    Mark Rippetoe – “On resting in between reps: It varies with the length of the set. 5s or fewer get a breath to reset. Longer sets might take 2 breaths. During the last few reps of a true 20RM squat, just do what Jesus tells you.”

    • dina dew (Pebs) says:

      This looks great KC. If I were an engineer I’d throw out some math percentage-talk about the effort. “Good job!” is all I got.

      Nice, helpful quote, thanks.
