What's Happening at Wildfire Crossfit

  • Rx or Scaled? That is the question!
    Rx or Scaled? That is the question!

    By: Coach Chris Stasik 

    The CrossFit Open season is awesome!  Every year, a couple hundred thousand athletes push themselves past their limits and accomplish things they never dreamed possible.  PR’s happen in the Open all the time.  This year, we definitely fueled the fire as we witnessed many WildFire athletes PR their clean 1RM as well as get their first chest-to-bar pull up, muscle up, or hand stand push up.  These are huge accomplishments and they happened through hard work, the energy of WildFire, and being challenged in the Open. 

    For many, doing the Open workouts, as prescribed (Rx) is a goal.  Now that a scaled option is available, the Rx division has gotten considerably more challenging in terms of the weights and movements.  Working towards the goal of competing Rx is ambitious and a great way to stay focused on improvements throughout the next year in preparation for the 2016 Open.  That said, competition and training are different beasts and they need to be approached differently.  

    As an example, let’s look at workout 15.3 (14 minute AMRAP of 7 ring muscle ups, 50 wall balls, and 100 double unders).  Quite a few athletes did this workout Rx, even though they were still looking to get that first muscle up.  That was inspiring and epitomizes what the Open is all about!  What if that same workout was programmed at WildFire on a typical training day?  Would you approach it differently?  I know I would.  

    My 15.3 experience consisted of muscle up attempts for about 12 minutes.  I knew I had a good shot at getting a rep or two in, so I went for it.  It’s the Open!  It’s competition!  However, if that workout shows up on the whiteboard, I’m scaling it.  Our training is effective because it is intense and varied.  Workouts are designed to be performed within a certain time domain.  Although it was exciting to be in that moment, missing muscle ups for 12 minutes was neither intense nor varied!  In training, I would have scaled the movements in exchange for a more intense 14 minute experience.  Similarly, if doing Fran Rx takes 12 minutes, the intensity piece is getting lost and the workout should be scaled to a point where Fran is a 3 to 8 minute effort.  We all get stuck in the Rx mentality from time to time, but that is an impediment to success.  

    Smart and deliberate training is key.  Rx is a way to standardize workouts for comparison and competition.  It is far less important in training beyond being a reference. Listen to your body and choose weights and movements which are challenging but still allow you to preserve the effort and intensity of the workout.  Find the weights and movements that are Rx for you.  These may be lighter, the same, or heavier than the whiteboard Rx.  If unsure, ASK A COACH!  A little thought about these things pre-workout will yield more results later and have you hitting the Open Rx in no time.
