Please hold questions and comments until Garddawg or BlueBugofJustice post the scaling, which usually includes links to exercise videos, common substitutions and other helpful information.
The mainpage of CrossFit directs new people here for help getting started CF can be confusing enough for a newbie, we want to make it as easy as possible for them. We ask you to be courteous and thoughtful of the newbies. If they show up here for the first time and have to wade through 5-10 posts before we have a chance to scale for them, it can make it more difficult.
GD is travelling at the moment and may be slow to post the scaling. He will get there.
I had thought I might be able to re-post old scalings as a suggested starting point, but there hasn’t been a swimming WOD in quite a few years now, so GD’s on his own for this one.
Okay, I’ll be the first to ask… what’s a reasonable substitute for swimming?
I was going to aim for a row but how would the scaling of a 50m swim look?
HA! Yeah, someone has to be:
Also I think he meant 4 or 5 rounds of swimming/pushups. Just mark down what you and go on.
I’m going to say for most folks 200m sprint or 250 meter row would do the trick. The world record for 50m swim is less than 25 seconds so I figure most folks will hit about 1 min of work more or less. No need to over think it but I think that’s probably pretty good.
Seven rounds of:
35 Side-to-Side Jumps over a 13 inch hurdle
1 Snatch 11:45 - 315# used 45# for the 7 snatches
Terrible. My snatches were more of a power snatch - pause - OHS. I practiced for 20 minutes but I could not get a correct snatch, even at 40# which I know I can get. I had never done 45# snatch before, PR is 40#, but I’m stubborn and still decided to do the wod at 45#, even if I had to stop on top.
So the snatch were not that good but I wanted something heavier.
$-out: snatch practice
I practiced the snatch at 40# and it worked SO WELL on the first shot!
I tried 45# and it worked on the first shot as well!!! New PR on the snatch at 45# then, no pause on top, it just flew easily
5-5 at 40#
5-5 at 45#
It’s been a long time since I’ve done snatch so I guess I had to “remind” my body of this lift. Maybe also I was probably not warmed-up properly at first because after the wod, the snatches were very easy.
We’re just posting here for the first time - we just finished yesterday’s workout, so if we should have posted to that thread, I apologize… just let me know, and I’ll make the adjustment for next time.
7 rounds for time
-35 double unders
5 rounds for time:
-25 double unders

We’ll try to pick a dog type for next time, rather than scaling on our own - we’ll most likely do puppy! haha)
