So, I have been thinking about scaling and the WODs we run. Many times the question comes up "what weight should I do?" The answer has always been hard on the fly, but in thinking about it, the answer should be "to do the movement safely, yet still be challenging." This means that if the clean weight is 135, and you can't do 135, you will need to experiment on a weight that still allows you to keep up form, still takes considerable effort, but allows you to do the prescribed number of reps (while still be taxing.) This might mean that the weight is 75, 95 or 155. Scaling is meant to take the basic premise of the WOD and tailor it to meet your needs (not your wants.)

12 minute AMRAP
5 pwr cleans (135/95)
10 box jumps
5 kte
