If the weight (say 95lbs) is too heavy to lift, obviously lifting a lighter weight is the solution. What should you do when 95lbs is near your maximum threshold, though (you can lift it maybe 3 times)?

My thinking would be to crank out as many singles as you can. You don't get the same 'metabolic' conditioning as people using straight sets (or broken into 7-7-7) but you're becoming stronger. Since the weight was heavy it indicates a lack of raw strength.

Maybe lowering the weight is the way to build strength and get more conditioning effect.

Any thoughts?

I would lower the weight and get through the WOD. Soon your strength will match the WOD.
