What if I can’t do the recommended weights or rounds in a work out?

By Top Tier CrossFit

We scale, or modify, what was recommended. If you can’t do a 185 pound deadlift, pick a weight that you can do. If five rounds is too high a training volume now, let’s scale it back to three. Everyone scales and modifies, even us experts. Scaling and modification should never be seen as inadequate or inferior to the prescribed group plan. Scaling and modifying is necessary to ensure your continued progress over a lifetime without serious injury. Use scaling and modification often, and if you are not sure how to in a given workout, just ask for our advice!
