Previewing the CrossFit Workout
When you get to class, you’ll find the white board looks like this.
On your SugarWOD app, you’ll see screens like the ones below.
Come early & prepare in advance. You’ll get more out of the class if you know what lies ahead.
Rx Versus Scaled CrossFit WOD
Rx means you did the workout as prescribed, e.g. exactly as written. Scaled means you made a modification to the workout (reduced load, reduced rounds, changed an exercise.) Members are always encouraged to scale the workout to preserve the current stimulus (intent of the workout). It’s better to scale too light and go faster than it is to scale too heavy and not complete a workout. To scale a WOD via SugarWOD, just click the workout you are going to complete and click the “scaled” option when you enter your results. Always scale a workout to keep it safe for existing injuries or mobility limitations.
Choosing Your Scaling
The Rx version of the workout isn’t better for everyone. If you are deconditioned or new to CrossFit, the Rx version is probably worse for you. Doing exercises at high intensity with incorrect techniques leads to injuries and soreness in the wrong muscles (lower back, neck, etc.) When in doubt, choose the scaled option.
Moreover, each workout features a Men’s Weight and a Women’s weight. So that’s 4 different versions of the same workout.
