Re: Rx vs scaled down version of WODS

Scaling is definitley encouraged. The best way to scale is to go to the brandx website which you can find on the main site. If you are trying to scale weights for yourself you should think about the intent of the WOD. Take Fran. If you are going to go as Rx'd but on the set of 15 will have to put the bar down and wait 1 minute to rest to get 1 more rep then you should scale down. The intent of Fran is a very fast metcon. So same with pullups, if you think you can get the first set of pullups, 21, but after that you have to wait a minute and are doing singles, its better to do band or jumping to keep your power output higher. Glad to see your easing into it and making gains!
