SCALING GUIDE
Assault Bike/Row: Bike is preferable if available. If you have limited bikes, you can have one group start with the bike and end with the row and the other vice versa. For athletes who will take more than 1:00 to complete 20/15 calories, scale down.
Run: For athletes who will take longer than ~1:50/300m, scale distance.
Kettlebell Swing: Athlete should be able to complete the round in no more than two sets with short break. Scale load accordingly. Athletes who lack sufficient mobility to swing the KB overhead should perform Russian swings. If 32kg/24kg for 20 reps or Russian KBS is not sufficiently challenging for them, they may increase to 25 repetitions.
Thruster: Athlete should be able to complete the first and second rounds in no more than two sets with short breaks, third round unbroken. Scale load accordingly.
Burpee Box Jump Over: Athlete should be able to work at a rate of 8 reps/minute or more. Scale repetitions and/or height accordingly. Scale movement to squat thrust (down to top of push-up position, then back up, without bringing chest to floor) for athletes who will see a significant drop in intensity on burpees. Alternatively, burpees to a bench may help sustain the intensity. Athletes who cannot safely perform box jumps should perform step-up and overs.
