To Scale or Rx’d a WOD…that is the Question What is YOUR Answer???

Posted in Crossfit Philosophy, CrossFit Workouts, Members on April 23, 2010 by Crossfit Sioux Falls

Pigs on ice skates anyone?

When should you scale a WOD, if at all?

As an athlete/member, what goes through your mind when you see a workout that you know you can perform RX, but at the same time will take you twice as long to perform?

Should you scale the workout?

Or is the time component irrelevant to you? What is more important – finishing the workout regardless of how long it takes you, or, scaling the workout so that you preserve the stimulus and are able to maintain a high power output (i.e. high intensity) throughout the entire WOD?

Post thoughts to comments.
