Scale It, Dummy

A LOOOOOOOOONG time ago (2012), in a galaxy FAR, FAR away (South Saint Louis), I wrote an article about CrossFit. This article was aimed at some of the people I coached at the time so CLEARLY does not apply to you all (or does it?).

A couple weeks ago, I was having a conversation with someone at CrossFit Kirkwood. As usual, I gave general guidelines for how long the workout should take and how it should be scale. As usual, not everyone listened to me. GASP!!! I know. It’s crazy. But it happens. A lot.

So we were talking, and I was basically saying that scaling appropriately will make you more fit than always pushing for Rx. While I got a cursory nod, I’m not sure if it really sank in or not. So…. I give you Scale It, Dummy – a short essay by Neil Jones about why scaling will make you more fit. Make the decision for yourself if it applies to you.
