Re: WOD thoughts on "As prescribed" with rest vs "Scaled" straight through

I believe scaling is a necessity for anyone first starting out with the WODs, considering most people need to develop just their movement patterns. However, in order to become more efficient to the prescribed weights, you need to do the prescribed weights. Whether that be in an all out attempt at "Fran" with 95lbs, or a different 95lb thruster WOD. Even do a few outside of the WOD's to get used to it. You've probably seen people who do cable pulldowns week in and week out, but can't do a single dead hang pullup? They're everywhere! I think the most beneficial and addictiveness to the whole CrossFit methodology is directly related to being humbled. Then working up from there.
