Goal: Choose options that allow you to complete 4-5 rounds after the run with the allotted time.

From this point forward, you will notice that we are not inputting the Fitness Rx WODs into Beyond the Whiteboard. We will continue to offer scaling options and Fitness Rx on the Gym Whiteboard and through this blog, however, to give you guidelines. You are welcome to create the Fitness Rx versions in BTW and post or click the “Modified” option when posting through the site. I will also list goals to follow to ensure we are keeping to the proper stimulus as designed with the programming. This is done to ensure the programming as a whole is as effective as possible in producing fitness and power, which is measured well against time and not always JUST a measure of how much weight you do or how “hard” a movement might be. Further changes will begin to show themselves throughout the upcoming weeks in our effort to always improve our service and results. Listen to your coaches and don’t always assume that MORE is better if it is at the cost of your health or time.
