Scaling Options (No Measure)

SCALING OPTIONS

1) Intermediate

Power Cleans: The workout reps will stay the same. Athlete should use load that starts very heavy (approximately 85-90% of 1RM) and decrease slowly from there.

Push-ups: If the pace slows too much and continuous failing of reps occurs, keep reps the same and use the “sling shot” scaling option.

2) Novice

4 Push-ups

4 Power Cleans

8 Push-ups

6 Power Cleans

12 Push-ups

8 Power Cleans

16 Push-ups

10 Power Cleans

*Keep power clean weight the same throughout all sets. Use the band assisted push-up scaling options if possible. If the athlete cannot use the band assist scale to the knees.
