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.

So about 3000 people come here each day to get the free scaling we do every night. 24/7, 365 days a year. We rarely ask anything of our members or the people who come here. Right now we are asking you to vote so that CF Kids can get a grant to teach CrossFit to kids from 1st through 6th grade. It takes just a few seconds to text a vote. We could have 3000 votes a day, if you all took a few seconds to text a vote in. The highest vote right now after two days of voting is around 1000, we have 98. I’ll post a few reminders please help..

Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes of:
Row 250 meters
Scaled back to 10 minutes based on the tightness that I still have in my abs from the GHB situps last week. I am able to stand and move now, but situps during warmups were extrememly difficult and the stretch from pullups was distracting. Decided not to push it and cut the time requirement in half:
5th round, completed row/ 10 pushups
The pushups were more difficult that I thought they would be considering.
CFWU 2 X 10 (no pull-ups or push-ups; 20 sit-ups) + mobility + Burgener WU
.com WOD from 111205
Five rounds for time of:
Run 200 M (treadmill)
20 KB swings, 1 pood
10 Asst. Pull-ups (G&P)
I did a very light scaling today; taking it easy coming back from my back issue. Feeling good all day and during the WOD but still stiff this morning it slightly disrupted my sleep last night but my three year-old son really disrupted my sleep last night. Good thing I turned in early last night.
EVa - 5 RFT
Run 1/2mi (treadmill)
30 KB Swing (used 45lb db)
*Did this at a hotel gym, so the gear was not quite up to par. Also, i live in the midwest, but am traveling for business in the Rockies. I did this WOD at about 9,000 feet of elevation…totally gassed.
