A good way to think about scaling in a WOD when you are “close” to being able to do something or if you can do just a few.

Saturday 9:15 AM CrossFit three person team workout this morning. You don’t have to have the same fitness level or abilities as your partner in a partner workout. All our workouts are scalable and adaptable to anyone. Today Syana, Sara and Beth were a team. Each have different abilities – scaled athletes working side by side with adaptive athletes all getting in an awesome workout. Don’t be afraid that you might hold someone on your team back because you won’t. CrossFit Adaptive CrossFit IM ABLE Foundation

With the bar on your back and hands in the wide grip snatch position, sit down into a deep squat. Brace your core and make sure your body weight is evenly disturbed across your entire foot before you then push the barbell over your head and hold for a few seconds.👍🏼
In order to effectively stabilize the bar overhead, you “turn on” and learn to use the muscles on the back side of the body like your larger deltoids, lats and traps, as well as the smaller muscles that control your shoulder blade AND joint like your rhomboids and rotator cuff muscles.💪🏼
If you’re doing this press correctly, you should NOT see any movement in other parts of your body as the bar is moved vertically from the the traps to above the head. You will also end up in the exact same position as the receiving position of the snatch.🏋🏼♀️
