50 C2B Pull Ups
40 Sumo Deadlift High Pull (95/65lb)
30 Tuff Push-ups
10m Handstand Walk
Session Notes – Inverted
Handstand walking is one of those things that I wished we did more often. There’s value in being comfortable in the inverted position, but I think the real win here is the opportunity to work on shoulder and core strength that will translate more directly to your day to day life. One thing you can do to practice this skill is to spend time in a static hold against the wall, then when comfortable there out on the floor in a freestanding position.
Dusty Highland, a fantastic gymnastics coach at DogTown CrossFit recommends people begin by shifting weight back and forth while up against the wall. The stabilization and strength developed in this position will translate to floor strength when it’s really time to put this to work.
