We all scale workouts. Maybe it's because we have trouble with pull ups, push ups, or double unders. Maybe the prescribed weight is too heavy and we need to adjust in order to keep the intensity high and get what we need to get out of the workout.
Usually, one of the coaches in helping you in order to make sure you're using the right scale for you. But what happens when you're something of a veteran and you suddenly find yourself relying on the same scale over and over again?
At that point, your scale has become a crutch and it's holding you back from making the progress you should and could be. Look at it this way: we only make progress when we're outside of our comfort zone, and if you're scaling something a particular way because it's comfortable or familiar, I challenge you to try something harder and different next time.
