She's been coming for some time, and now she's finally here. I'm sure you sensed her approach with the appearance of prescriptions like, "1 1/2 BW deadlift" and, "BW bench press" in the strength work. She's the most dreaded and definitely the hardest of the girl WODs: "Linda" a.k.a. "Three Bars of Death".
In preparing for Linda, we learned that a weight prescription in terms of percentage bodyweight may be a bit too much for beginner or even intermediate athletes to handle. When the workout calls for 55 reps each of 3 major lifts, like Linda does, a load that's too heavy will turn it into a slow grind. This WOD is meant to be conditioning and it's meant to be done fast. By scaling the loads to more manageable levels (for those initial sets of 10), we're able to accomplish the goal of the workout: fast, heavy barbell work.
