Skill Strength

Spend 10 minutes practicing your handstands!

Handstand Progression Review:
Step 1:  Be able to hold 30 degree handstand for 30 seconds
Step 2:  Practice getting wrists 3” from wall and how to turn out safely
Step 3:  Be able to hold 3” from wall position with only feet touching for 45 seconds
Step 4:  Practice balance in the 3” position by tapping your foot off the wall until you can balance for 10-15 seconds regularly
Step 5:  Start with your wrists 8-12” from the wall, pull one leg out and then the other to find balance.  This is beginning to simulate kicking up to a handstand.  Be able to hold for 10-15 seconds regularly.
Step 6:  Practice kicking up to the wall without letting your feet hit the wall until you can begin to hold a handstand for 10-15 seconds.
Step 7:  Kickup in free space!


Fitness and Advanced Strength

Box Squats 8 x 2 reps, rest 60 seconds

Notes:  Only 2 weeks left of these squats before we start building back up with our regular back squats!  Warmup the bar weight to 3-5% more than last week and perform for all sets.  Prioritize slow and controlled on the way down, with a one second pause at the bottom before exploding back up as fast as possible.  If this is your first week, set a baseline.


Fitness Conditioning

2 Rounds:
500 meter Row
25 Bar Facing Burpees
15 Deadlifts
-15 min cap-

Notes:  Prescribed is 135/95.  Scale to Romanian style deadlifts or Russian Kb swings.


Advanced Conditioning

1000 meter Row
50 Bar Facing Burpees
30 Deadlifts (155/105)
-15 min cap-

Notes:  Focus on snapping the hips up on the burpees and landing flat footed.  Get into a rhythm from the first rep.  Keep the midline tight and load the hamstrings on the deadlifts.  Scale down the weight as needed or perform heavy KB swings.
