    No scaling for Mary. Its a Big Dawg workout.
    Puppies and Buttercups: If you cannot do pull ups do jumping pull ups.
    If you cannot do push ups, DO NOT do knee push ups. Do box or wall push ups instead. Ask your instructor to demo if you do not know how to do box or wall push ups.
    Please note that despite the opinion of CrossFit BrandX, “Mary” can indeed be a scaled workout. There are lots of ways to scale it and your class instructor can offer plenty of suggestions for that.

    Congratulations Court!
    All the best on your new adventure with Morgan!

  • Lt Gabe

    Also two very enthusiastic thumbs up for the bluefish article. We don’t go out fishing for blues nearly enough as we should. Fluke, Porgies and Blackfish (poor mans lobster) are the usual focus for us, but man blues are tasty.
