The point of scaling is to get you better at doing the movements as well. For instance of the ring dip, when the athlete feels like the are ready to tackle scaled ring dips, coaches will set them up doing the dips from the standing position, then feet on a box, and then with a band. What we hope to accomplish is a progression to hopefully knocking out ring dips with zero assistance.
This all being said, scaling is not an invitation to speed up your time or knock out more rounds. If you are scaling a wod, you should not be doing every single round unbroken easily or finishing before everyone else by a long shot. The wod should still be very challenging. Picking a load can be sometimes tricky, but again, that is where our coaches come into play. And once again, if you have ANY question please just ask us. That is what we are here for.
