Lets talk about Scaling
This, is a very daunting workout. The deadlifts are heavy, the skill level is high. This workout is basically going to be a tutorial on how to scale a very difficult workout to your own individual skill level.
We are going to be sticking to about 60-80% of your 1rm, or something that is difficult for a 5, so, don’t argue with the coach expecting to do 110% of your 1rm for 15 reps.
Familiarize yourself with some of these pistol progressions, scroll down and watch 1-4 of the progressions.
even if you cannot perform some of these progressions, we will most definitely have a progression for you!
