Scaling Eva

Short workouts do not need much strategy. Warm up, give it your all and embrace the pain. Long ones are a different story. Anyone doing the first Murph for example has to decide on doing 100, 200, 300 pull-ups, pushups and squats or 20 rounds of 5, 10, 15 each. That decision could mean 5-10 minutes off the clock. Eva has a similar challenge. 72 pounds are a lot of weight on a kettlebell. Especially doing it 150 times. Especially before 150 proper pullups. Especially being out of air on 5 x 1/2 miles of run. Either you Rx and go longer or start scaling the KB or the pullup. (No, we do not scale the run, silly). I opted for the KB scale to keep the momentum and committed to the 72 pounder Eva by the end of the year!
