Rx (the prescription for the Workout of the Day) is something to aim towards, a goal! But form, safety, or the should never be sacrificed just to Rx the workout! AND even if you don’t Rx, you will STILL get an awesome workout as long as you push hard!

Scaling a workout can involve a couple of things:

  1. Reduce the number of rounds, repetitions, sets – or time intervals.

  2. Take some weight off the bar! Reduce the weight, but keep the movement.

  3. Modify or substitute the movement.

All of these options will help you move safely and make sure you get a great workout. And if you’re not sure, ask your coach! AND never feel bad about scaling! It’s an important part of the fitness journey and you are making the best decision for you!
