10 Handstand Push Ups
3 Rope Climbs
We’ve been working towards improving our shaping this month with handstands. The foundational goal for improving our handstand (whether it is a kick up, nose and toes, or free standing) is to have full joint stacking from top to bottom. Meaning from the ankles to the wrists there is one solid line of skeletal support, this is why we play with hollow positions and nose and toes holds, to develop the awareness and stability of maintaining that stacking for efficiency. This last of this month’s handstand work this week will have a bit more flexibility to work the actual handstand and kick-up (to wall or free standing), but don’t forget to keep in mind the reasons for all the previous work we’ve done.
Pushing, pulling, running, jumping, oh my! All we need is to climb some trees for a full fledged adventure (don’t worry, no tree climbing in this WOD). This is a task completion workout, so get through the rounds and run as quick as you can!
