With our programming, we "program for the best and scale/modify for the rest". This doesn't mean that if you need to scale you are bad and those don't scale are better people. This only has to do with the level of fitness and the capacity of the individuals. So, even though I hear this all the time, the goal should NOT be to put an RX next to your name. The goal should be to have the appropriate set up of the workout so that you are able to advance your level of fitness better. What does appropriate mean? It means that you can do the weights and movements a certain amount of times if you were fresh, and it also means that you should be able to hold some sort of level of consistency throughout the workout. This is how you get what's intended by the workout. Sure it's fine to go heavy or shoot for the RX sometimes, but don't make that be your normal. If you aren't getting the correct intent (and intent doesn't mean just tired), then you are actually doing an entirely different workout. This also means that if you are scaling, don't feel locked into only 1 scaled version of a movement. A scale is meant to assist you by lowering the weight, adjusting the amount of assistance, changing the range of motion, decreasing the number of reps, decreasing the number of rounds, modifying the movements, or changing the movements. Let's take pull-ups for example, it shouldn't be that you ONLY use the green band and that's it, always. You can do jumping pull-ups. You can change band width. If you cant decrease the size but you want to get stronger then you can increase the number of reps. You can do strict instead of using any kipping with the band. You can stretch the band across the rig at one height to give a level of assistance or you can lower it to get less assistance. You can do ring rows at varying angles or even put your feet on a box. You can attach a bar to the rig and do incline pull-ups. You can lay at an angle and do rope pull up on a rope. You can attach a PVC pipe to a band on the rig and do pull downs. I could go on and one. The point is that you want to use all the scales to improve your movement. No scale is wrong but it is wrong to use the same scale every single time. If you have questions, talk to your coach! :)
