Scaling for Success
Essentially, CrossFit bootcamp is just “modified CrossFit”. The WODs are programmed based off of CrossFit movements and techniques that we can do without the heavy weights. In CrossFit, we have these workouts called “Hero WODs” and “The Girls”. They’re benchmark WODs that we use in the gym to test our skills, abilities and progresses. These can also be modified to fit a bootcamp WOD. We’re simply scaling for success. Meaning, scaling the movements down to our abilities so that we still get a great workout without killing our self esteem. Today, we’ll start off with a modified Girl WOD.
