WOD Brief

Let’s work on being inverted and continue our progressions as we get gymnastics intensive today. Handstand walks demand that we have a base level of strength and balance. Everyone should initially be able to hold push up position and do shoulder taps from that position. As we have confidence here we’ll begin moving into a more vertical position – From there try to get into wall walk x3-5 reps at the top of the wall work on shoulder taps or just weight shifts (think moving hips over to the side) and be patient on taking hands off the ground. Taps are not meant to be for speed but as a strength effort to stack weight on a single arm. From here we will begin moving away from the wall; walking to the wall, and of course .. partner walks. Patience and steady in the progressions will deliver your best self here. Have fun!

The workout today has the repetitions going down from 10 to 1. We’ll complete 10 pull-ups, then the handstand walk – if you don’t have a handstand we’d like to do a reverse bear crawl at 60 feet (10 mats). The idea is to stay in a bear position – stacked, as this will create and engage the same muscles we are targeting in the handstand walk.

Toes to bar … wrap the bar, press with those lats, and keep nice clean lines.

Sled push – we’ll add weight – 2 45 lb plates for the gents, and 60 extra pounds on the sled for the ladies). Take the sled the length of the building, or halfway and back. This should be an aggressive drive. If you keep arms locked and stacked you’ll be in the same strength position from a handstand!
