    5 3/40 rounds (don’t wont to sell myself short)

    Newly tricked me into thinking he was sore. I thought I had a chance to beat him today. My dreams were quickly crushed. Also Faith you left before we could sing you Happy Birthday.

    I doubtless would, particularly with no running involved.

    However, I think I’ll do Helen instead. A WOD named after a harlot who caused a huge bit of fuss and inspired a prophylactic company.

    If he stops, I’ll start. If you’re going that fast and still scaling, it’s time to up your weight!

    Happy Birthday Angie! Yay for May birthdays!!

    What is scaling?? And I was trying to keep it steady, Ryan said keep it steady 🙂

    Scaling is when you don’t do the prescribed weight/reps. If you did 65lb squat cleans on Friday then you’re fine. If not then you scaled it.

    Another thing you’ll come to realize is Newly and Ryan are polar opposites. Newly likes people to do Rx weight all the time, where as Ryan wants you to keep your form perfect throughout. Your best bet is to listen to your body. You want a weight that is challenging, but you don’t want to get injured by doing your 1RM 30 times because it is the prescribed weight.

    Form Vs. Rx

    I am new to all this, but it looks to me like these rules, like all rules, should be filtered through the principal of casuistry.

    Looks like some elements of good form are minimize injury, others to lift more weight then one could other wise lift absent the technique, CJ’s come to mind.

    Safety maintained, if the Rx is light for an individual why not get it done as fast as possible? Is that not the goal of a timed WOD?

    Why thank you Eric, that was helpful. So pretty much, scaling is slacking.. got it 😛

    That makes sense to me Ronin (have I met you??), I’d rather have good form and keep my heart rate up going fast. And I’m good at listening to my body and knowing what I can handle.. and I’m competitive so I wont hold back. 🙂

    You guys are so dang hard core!!
