Before diving headfirst into CrossBox Training for the first time, it's recommended to be doing a great deal of scaling. While CrosBox Training offers a broad scale it can be notoriously intense for beginners , keep in mind that you don’t need to over do it to experience intensity , it's built in by design.
Also , be aware that whether it’s the volume, load or some other technical element — shoot for the middle of the pack if your fortunate enough to train with a group of other CrossBox enthusiasts. Unless you’re doing the workout as prescribed, finishing first is a guarantee that the scaling was misappropriated and done entirely correct. Of course, challenging yourself with weight or movement complexity to the point that the class is waiting around cheering you for several minutes after everyone is done is a failure in the opposite direction.
The point of scaling, after all, is to provide and adequate prescription to everyone in the room regardless of their fitness level.
If you’re fortunate enough to have a quality coach, he or she will help you scale by providing context. If your in the situation where you are forced to train solo with no coaching , it's always best to scale down. For example, you should choose a weight that you can perform two or more rounds unbroken with , rather than forcing reps right away.
This process will take some refinement and getting used to. The most important thing is to track your data and learn from your performances, especially in the initial stages of training.
