Is Scaling A Workout Admitting Defeat!?!

Sometimes, as we stand at the whiteboard, as the Coach is briefing the workout for the day, little thoughts pop into our minds (and sometimes are vocalized) like, “there is no way I can do that amount of weight”, “I definitely can’t finish the workout under that time limit”, “I guess I should just go home then, because there’s no way I can do this workout as written”. What if I told you that scaling is not a bad thing! Contrary to what you might think, scaling is an awesome tool that allows so many people from different fitness backgrounds to do the same workout together. Maybe your version has a scaled movement, weight, or reps but you are still in the gym, throwing down with your friends, getting a great workout in. Scaling doesn’t mean you are doing less than or aren’t good enough to do the Rx workout, it means you are tailoring the workout to fit your needs for that day, and you know what, THAT IS OK! Don’t look at scaling as a bad thing, and instead, embrace it and know that you are giving your body exactly what it needs in order to achieve the best workout possible.  🙂
