Good scale for Linda WOD? answer quickly please :)

I gotta go take my bus in 30 minutes so I need fast input

Basically, I will lower the weight of every exercise by 1/4 of my BW, so I will do 1.25 on DL (220lbs), .75 on BP (130), .5 on Cleans (90) but here is where it gets tricky. I calculated the amount of weight I would be moving if I didn't scale the workout.

Exemple: on Deadlift I should do 260lbs x 55 reps (in total) so that gives around 15 000 lbs.

Now since I lowered the weight, I calculated how many reps I should be doing to move in total the same weight (15 000 lbs) and on deadlift it gave me 66 reps. So I will be doing deadlift, 220lbs (1.25 BW) for 66 reps total, so it will be:

10-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-4-3

I did this for all three exercises

Definitely if you want to do the same amount of work. Obviously, with more reps is going to take more time than if you could've done it like prescribed, but that's a good idea if you don't want to shortchange yourself any.

I DID IT! 41:57 seconds. Sucks, but at least I completed it

If you curious to see the amount of reps I did and weights and all, look at my journal on BB.com: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...1#post96575741
