TRIBE! We are going to start something new this week, all of our workouts are measurable by time, loads and work capacity! We have been talking about putting the scale options in each wod as a Scale RX, rather than leaving it for each athlete to decide. This way you will have a better understanding of the wod’s intended stimulus and it will be easier to replicate and retest in order to determine if the next level is right for you! For example, today’s wod has barbells and rope climbs, each barbell movement has an intended load to help achieve the correct stimulus, there are also two other loads RX’d as scale options. These should be your only options when considering what loads to place on your bar. If an RX Alpha athlete will get 7 rounds of today’s WOD, and I choose the Alpha loads and get 3 rounds, not the same stimulus! Same scenario only I choose the Bravo load and get 6 rounds +5 reps, that’s more like it! When retesting this wod in the future, Once my score starts to creep toward 10 or 11 rounds, the bar is too light and I should go to the next level. Please make it a point to stick to the load and scaling options, avoid starting at a load too heavy and stripping weight! Also avoid loading the bar to 125 if the RX’s call for 135/115/95. Stick to the program and see how it impacts your training!
