Concur with much of the above advice, and I've been doing the early morning thing for awhile as well. Getting used to doing it helps some, and becoming a fat-burner instead of a sugar-burner helped...

Russell hit on probably the biggest missed opportunity to scale up in the mainpage WOD - adding a weight vest to Cindy. I think that anyone who can do 20+ rounds, which works out to a rep every 2...
