I'd like to give you all my thoughts once again on the
subject of scaling the workouts. This
month's workouts are all superhero-themed and by definition are all very
hard. There are a lot of them that entail Double KB's and most of them are
in excess of 20+ minutes - not our normal fare.
So... this is a perfect opportunity to learn how to scale the workouts
to fit how you are feeling, moving, etc.
On any workout that we do you can modify the load (go lighter or
heavier), modify the number of KB's (use one instead of two), or even modify
the techniques used (if you are unsure of your stability overhead with two KB's
then just go overhead with one).
When I design workouts I always have a goal in mind; and
contrary to popular opinion, it's not to destroy you! (NOTE: any idiot can string a bunch of
exercises together and call it a workout.
The goal should be to take several athletic attributes and focus on them
in a complementary manner.) Each workout has an underlying concept or theme
that I am trying to address... I know it doesn't seem that way but it's
true. In the case of the superhero
workouts they are all intentionally hard and require a lot more focus and
attention to detail than our regular fare.
Why? Because being a superhero is
hard and sometimes painful work... but I know that you can do it if you
approach it the right way.
Scaling should not be about ego but instead about common
sense. Unfortunately, common sense is
anything but... because if it was common then this country wouldn't as many
problems as it does at the moment! :)
Anyway, if you want to scale a workout and don't know what
to do PLEASE ask John or I and we will help you out... I promise! :)
