 What does scaling mean in this gym? That answer depends on who you ask; to some it means defeat, to some an excuse, to some it is to progress according to my ability, to minimize injury and to be able to keep up the intensity that is what CrossFit is. The last answer there is pretty spot on and blaringly obvious as far as common sense but our silly brains will tend to lead us down different paths on different days so let's just take this as a reminder that we are here to workout and kick ass in everything we do.
Today's workout is a great example of another issue I would like to address: skipping a workout because you can't do something. Ummm what now? The fun part of all of this training is doing things we couldn't do before in various forms of movement. All movements really compliment each other and with improved repetition between them all, all movements will improve. If the first thing you said in your head as you read the workout is nope please see below and hopefully it goes from nope to yup! Just a few examples of the scales for today's WOD:
Handstand Walk - Handstand Holds - Barbell Overhead Holds
Muscle Up - 3 strict pull-ups/3 strict rings dips per mu - muscle up from the floor
Legless Rope Climb - 2-3 pulls legless then use legs - Rope Pull-ups
Have a well thought out Tuesday!
