Happy Halloween…but don’t let Fran scare you. The last time “Fran” was programmed- back in July (see full list of compare dates below) the goal was to use the same scaling as the most recent attempt. Today the focus is to finish in 5 minutes or less. Take a look at your last effort- the weight of the barbell, type of pull up, and the time finished. If you went Rx and did it in 6 minutes or less. Repeat it Rx… beat your previous best. If it took you more than 6 minutes- consider a slightly lighter load and maybe even a pull up modification that will allow you to push harder with fewer breaks so that you can finish in under 5 minutes. So this means- as an example- even if you went Rx and completed the WOD in 10 minutes- today you will be scaling in some way.
This manner of adjusting variables in a workout is known as “time-domain driven scaling.” It is done as a way to maintain a high level of power output, particularly for those who need to adjust load or movements in the workout so that there is less rest during the WOD. Less rest = faster finish time = (roughly speaking) higher power output. This isn’t the ONLY way to adjust a workout… but it is ONE METHOD to help you increase your ability to increase your intensity during a workout. Try it out.
