Monday 8/29

“Big Sexy”
5 rounds for time of:
6 deadlifts, 315/205 lb.
6 burpees
5 cleans, 225/155 lb.
5 chest-to-bar pull-ups
4 thrusters, 155/105 lb.
4 muscle-ups


This video beautifully demonstrates why we scale weights and why just be cause you can do a WOD prescribed , doesn’t mean you should. 

I’m not trying to embarrass this guy or ridicule him in anyway, but he is spending as much time looking at the barbell and rings as he is doing the actual workout. Remember, we are striving for intensity with our workouts, (you know, high power output) and standing around to get ready to pick up a bar that is too heavy to move quickly brings that intensity to a halt.  

There is never any shame in scaling a workout to allow you to move a little more quickly (and safely!) to help you get a more effective workout.
