A simple wod inspired by Stevens morning class
8 handstand push ups
12 toes to bar
16 (24kg) Kettlebell swings.
There were some special twists that carried on to the ring inversions after the wod: you have to get your bottom over your head, or, as visitting crossfitter Lambert said ” you mean your head and arse in alignment”.
That sounds like a catch phrase to me: so we focused on developing a proper handstand push up. One that loads the shoulders and builds capacity, not a handstand thats a collapse against the wall, with a squirming motion.
If you can, get your feet on a box, then get “your head and arse aligned”. To make matters worse we agreed that your legs should be straight, loading your hamstrings, thus avoiding 10 minutes of silly mobility exercises . The same standard carried over to the Toes to Bar. keep your legs long… lets get some quality into the movement: after all, thats where the magic is!
What could be simpler.
Anyway. It was a nasty WOD.
Preceded by 5, 5, 5+ push press.
