    Read this on a website this morning and wanted to share.

    “Dude, that was awesome, way to fight through”

    …“Yeah, but I scaled”

    As if scaling is something to be ashamed of, as if scaling is for the weak and the untrained.

    As if scaling means you didn’t do the workout – or your workout was less worthy because you scaled.

    It isn’t.

    “You did SO good!”

    …”Yeah, but I used a lighter weight”

    As if choosing the right weight for you means you will never get stronger and work up to the Rx’d weights. As if it is somehow the weaker choice.

    It isn’t.

    “That was amazing, great job today”

    …”Yeah, but I used a band”

    As if you should feel guilty using a band for a week, a month, a year or a lifetime. As if the band is something to hate and despise.

    It isn’t.

    “Good job finishing, way to not give up!”

    …”Yeah, but I was last”

    As if where you finish matters more than THAT you finished. As if finishing last means your WOD was easy.

    It doesn’t.

    We are all in a constant state of scaling – even the elite of the elite, even the few who make it to the finals at The CrossFit Games

    Double unders are scaled triple unders, MU are scaled weighted MU, 15′ rope climbs are scaled 20′ climbs.

    Sure, they aren’t called for in the WODs today, but what about tomorrow?

    Scaling is how you get from where you are now to your future kickass self.

    Scaling is how you stay safe and healthy.

    Scaling is how you improve your technique and learn to lift heavier.

    Scaling is how you finish the workouts and feel obliterated after, using a band instead of just staring at the bar for 10 min willing yourself to get a pullup.

    Scaling, is NOT, however, something to be ashamed of or something that you can use to write off your WOD as a poor performance.

    So next time you are crumpled on the floor gasping for air, be proud that you choose the right scale for you.

    Be proud that you killed the WOD, and that the WOD killed you.

      Fantastic! Thanks for sharing Matt. This is spot on!

    • CoachDB says:

      Spectacular Scaling Sermon! The goal is light and right, not heavy and horrible. Build yourself properly today, so you are stronger and healthier tomorrow! Thanks for sharing Matt.

    • GeorgeKobler says:

      then, I scaled it like it was a fish this am and I’m fiercely proud of it! 75/36 (ring pulls)

      thanks for the great coaching, Nathaniel and DB!

    • Haley says:

      thanks for sharing MATT!!! Love that and need to remind myself of it all the time 🙂

    • AP says:

      Excellent stuff, thanks for sharing.
      I wonder what would happen if we went a week with no whiteboard or posting scores/times, just a simple “done.” post and next to our names. Would you go as hard/heavy/fast without a clock or someone’s score to go after? Just you v you. How deep can you dig?

    • Mallory says:

      That’s great. My thoughts usually bounce back and forth between “Someday I won’t be the slowest and weakest person” and “Hey! At least I showed up!!”.

      That write up is better! Future Mallory appreciates it.

    • Adam Campbell says:

      Two thumbs up. Thanks Matthew
