This year there are a lot of people doing the scaled version of the Open wods.
Which is Awesome!
This is not just how I feel but also from the people who are doing scaled are saying the same thing, why?
Because first of all they are able to get through the whole workout without having to rest much do to the weight or just pure exhaustion.
They say the workout is much more intense because they never stop, moving faster creates more intensity. Intensity is what we are after.
They are completing so much more work in the same amount of time doing scaled, doing RX weight causes people do maybe get done with half the wod, now doing scaled everyone is finishing the workouts.
No one is getting injured!!!
Which is a huge plus, why aren’t they getting injured? Because the weight isn’t crippling them. Doing lighter weights makes the workout doable instead of flooring you half way through the workout causing you to use bad form and therefore getting injured.
These are just a few of the reasons why doing scaled is better.
Now carry that over into the workouts that aren’t from the Open.
I have to put a heavy Rx weight cause there are members that can do the weight but it doesn’t mean that you have to do them all the time. Be smart, know when to say when, or Uncle!
