CrossFit is about getting better at everything – not just the things you like to do. If you look at the workout and groan because there are 50 handstand push-ups in it, then you absolutely have to do that workout. Since I hate handstand push-ups (because I suck at them), I need to practice them as much as I can – I may need to scale them back a little (for example, I could put my feet on a bench so I’m pushing less than 100% of my body weight), but I want to fill in as many holes in my abilities as possible. Every exercise can be scaled back to almost nothing so that anyone can do them, but once a suitable level of scaling has been determined they still should try to do whatever the workout calls for. In CrossFit, there is no room for whining, excuses, or giving up just because you’re tired.

Today’s WOD:


21-15-9 reps for time of:

Post time (and scaling) to comments.
