Handstand Walks

If you have handstand walks, set a distance that's manageable and work towards completing that distance, unbroken, a few times with rest in between. If you don't have them, get with a partner, kick into a handstand while the partner grabs feet and depending on how well you can balance or not, have them assist you for a few feet at a time. Alternate. Spend 10 minutes on this skill.


Five rounds, each for time, of:
5 Hang Power Cleans, 185#/131#
10 Box Jumps, 30/27 inch box
15 Kettlebell Swings, 1.5/1 pood

You get 60 seconds to try and complete 1 round followed by 3 minutes of rest. If you don't feel you can complete the entire round in 1 minute, scale loads and/or heights to accommodate. The goal is to finish right around :55 to :60. For the ladies, 24 inch box plus one yellow bumper.

Post weights, heights, and times to comments/Logwod.

  6. had to scale today. 164#. still never finished a rd: 11, 13, 11, 10, 10.

    Making progress on HS. I was balanced for about 2 seconds. Not very long, I know, but I have never had the sensation of balance upside down before in my life, so I'm calling that a PR.

  10. finished each round with about 4-6 seconds left, should of went heavier, I keep saying that, so I should probably do it.

    Would of been a great day had I been able to even hold a handstand. One of these days!

  14. Anyone looking to try the Omaha Corporate Cup 10k, we've got a team again this year. For those who haven't, this is the largest road race in Omaha. 16 Sept, 9:00 am start time. If you want in, go to and join Team CFO. If you've done this race or any other qualifiers, see if you can get a seeded pass to start up front. Even if you haven't done a local race, you can email race director and try to convince them.
  15. Steve Says:
  16. Let me know if you have any questions... and more info to follow.

  18. John, I'm not even going to comment on where you like your ankles! HA!

    HS walks went well, so I tried to help others.

    I liked the metcon. 13,11,11,9,11 Rx'd.

Thanks For Visiting!
