    I am glad I took the ego advice. I saw the workout this morning and thought 185 seemed light, but ultimately I was happy I went with that weight. 106 total reps with 185#, and this was a fantastic workout!

    Question regarding article #2: So in a competition setting, try to avoid muscle failure, but what about a typical workout? If I'm halfway through a timed workout and I'm approaching muscle failure is it better to 1.) go ahead and work until failure, and then scale accordingly, or 2.) back off a little and scale back before failure can occur in order to maintain intensity?

      Phil my advice would be to scale right from the beginning. as soon as you hit muscle failure it's going to be hard to recover enough to maintain intensity for the rest of the WOD. better to scale from the get go and never hit failure and be able to keep your intensity (ie, Power) up the entire workout. here's a link to the Catalyst Athletics Power Output Calculator....play with it a little with some generic wods and you'll see how scaling can actually lead to higher power output numbers than going RX'd but being really slow. in the end Power is what drives your results
