A conversation I find myself repeating is explaining the idea behind scaling. Often when suggesting that someone should scale, I get a lot of resistance, mainly “You don’t think I can do that weight!?” I usually have to spend time explaining that “Yes, you can do that weight, but you’ll lose the intensity we’re aiming for.”
We often explain that Intensity is the key to fitness. Doing more work faster will get you much further than staring at a barbell with a little too much weight or a pull up bar with not enough band. We’re not asking you to scale because we think you’re weak. We need to find a way to keep you moving until the work’s done. So, we ask you to scale to make you even stronger than you are.
