There's no better way to start a morning than with a workout named after a 1930s strongman, the national sport of Japan, and a nasally-voiced nanny from Queens.
- Zercher Squats (3 sets of 3, 2 sets of 1)
Time for some Sumo Fran -- essentially Fran, but with sumo deadlift high-pulls in place of the thrusters.
- 21 SDHPs (95lbs)
- 21 pull-ups
- 15 SDHPs (95lbs)
- 15 pull-ups
- 9 SDHPs (95lbs)
- 9 pull-ups
Result: 5:35 as RXed. My Sumo Fran time's about a minute faster than my regular old Fran time -- probably 'cause I suck at thrusters. But I also prefer Sumo Fran because: (1) I can dump the bar between reps without losing a ton of time, and (2) it gives me an excuse to poorly Photoshop Fran Drescher's head onto a female sumo wrestler's body.
