People are afraid to do CrossFit, not because it's dangerous but because they can't do the movements. People see pull-ups, HSPUs, muscle-ups and think, "I can't do that, so I can't do CrossFit."
That's where scaling comes into play.
In this episode we teach you how to scale well. The goal of scaling is to preserve the intended stimulus. we have seen that done right and we have seen that gone horribly wrong. Listen to how Jason made a 65 year old pass out because he didn't scale appropriately.
When it comes to scaling you are only limited by your creativity. Don't be that coach that whenever you have double unders in a workout you simply tell people "twice as many singles." That's not good scaling and it's not good coaching.
In this episode, Ackerman and Fern will teach you how to scale effectively, discuss common mistakes, and even talk about when it's appropriate to scale up.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jason-ackerman/support
