Performance Menu Article:Getting Scaling Right

Hello Everyone! I am a big fan of the Performance Menu journal and I have recently rediscovered a great article titled Getting Scaling Right: A Systematic Method for CrossFit Programming written by Pierre Auge. There are several things about this article I like from a coaching standpoint but that is another discussion. I was wondering if anyone knew of a box that is currently using this method (along with the progressive strength schedule mentioned in article) as their programming? I would like to implement this progressive strength training while being able to consistently being able to scale for athletes to maximize their output. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Performance Menu Article:Getting Scaling Right

Thank you for posting that article. It is awesome. Probably some of the best information on programming I have ever seen.

Only one point can be criticized: I would have people doing benchmark workouts as rx'd, although I am aware that this means that it does not meet the intended workout (same thing with some of the Heros; but only if the athlete can have a reasonable result, e. g. completing Diane in like 20 minutes is just stupid). By the way: Diane was once considered an interval workout (look at old post like 9th March 2005). Nowadays they might post it with ring HSPU and 400 lbs deadlifts.
