HANDSTAND HOLD AND TTB

A few months ago, we did a workout that started each round with a handstand hold. Some found it disorientating to then return upright and pick up a deadlift bar. We are going to try this again today. However, this time, we are combining the handstand holds with toes to the bar. Toes to the bar are one of our focus movements for the month. So, pick something challenging

ROWING, PISTOLS, AND HSPUS

We’ve been seeing this combination of rowing with handstand pushups a few times lately. If you can get comfortable with being out of breath and kicking upside down, your mental strength to push through over movements while you are out of breath will improve as well.

RUNNING, POWER CLEANS, PUSHUPS

Does this workout look like Wednesday’s? It should. In the month of July, CrossFit gyms in Pittsburgh main site tested a bunch of workouts that combined running 400m with a lift and a gymnastics movement. We liked them and liked the concept of the modality test. See how this compares to Wednesday.

SHOULDER PRESS

We’ve done Back Squats this week. We’ve tested out gymnastics movement for the month. Time for our second lift, the Shoulder Press. By far, one of our weakest lifts. However, the shoulder press will build raw pressing strength to help move objects over your head.
