Freestanding handstand push-up practice

Spend 15-20 minutes practicing the following progression:

  • Headstand

  • Headstand with knees to chest

  • From the headstand position, kick upward to a handstand and hold

  • Kick to a handstand, hold, and lower back to a headstand

  • Multiple freestanding handstand push-ups

Rest at least 10 minutes, then perform:

As many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
35 double-unders
5 freestanding handstand push-ups

Post rounds and reps to comments.

Scaling:
The goal today is to build confidence in a gymnastics movement and develop a better understanding of your body in space. This is an opportunity to practice complex skills in a low-intensity environment.

Setup and execution:

*Perform all stages of the progression about 1 foot off a wall. Consider using an AbMat for your head. Even though the wall is there, the goal is to use it only if you lose balance or control. Remember, we are working on a freestanding handstand and handstand push-up.

Headstand | Start in a frog stand and extend both legs above your body. Your head and hands will still be on the ground in the tripod position.

Headstand with knees to chest | While in a headstand, slowly bring your knees to your chest and then extend them back above your body.

Kick to a handstand | While in a headstand, bring your knees toward your chest in a controlled fashion. While extending your legs, think about driving your heels to the sky — this will build momentum. Then press with your arms to complete the freestanding handstand.

Kick to a handstand, hold, and lower back to headstand | If you cannot yet hold a freestanding handstand, use the wall for assistance. Once you kick up, hold for a second or two, then slowly bring your head back down to a headstand. Achieve this by bringing your head in front of your hands, and allow the feet/legs to have a slight backward lean to counterbalance. This can be completed with one or both legs on the wall for assistance.

Multiple freestanding handstand push-ups | Once you have successfully made it back to the headstand, attempt another rep.

Modifications:

Go as far as you can in the progression and stop when it becomes challenging. Over time, progress to the full movement as you develop the skills.

Intermediate option:
Spend 15-20 minutes practicing the following progression:

  • Headstand

  • Headstand with knees to chest

  • From the headstand position, kick upward to a handstand and hold

  • Kick to a handstand, hold, and lower back to a headstand

  • Multiple handstand push-ups

Rest at least 10 minutes, then perform:

As many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
35 double-unders
5 handstand push-ups

*Perform all stages of the progression a few inches off a wall. Consider using an AbMat for your head. The goal is to kick up and back to a headstand against the wall. If you are confident with this, try the freestanding variation.

Beginner option:
Spend 15-20 minutes practicing the following progression:

  • Inchworm

  • Pike headstand

  • Pike handstand hold

  • Pike push-up negative

  • Multiple pike push-ups

Rest at least 10 minutes, then perform:

As many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
35 single-unders
5 pike push-ups

*Perform all stages of the progression in the middle of an open floor. Consider using an AbMat for your head. To make the pike position easier, keep your feet away from your hands. The closer the feet are to the hands, the more difficult the movement will be. The goal is to practice loading as much bodyweight as possible onto the hands, and to build confidence getting upside down. If you are confident with this progression, try the intermediate variation.

Scaling:
Today’s workout is meant to be a heavy sprint. Regardless of the other two movements, push the pace on the bike and don’t game it. Exiting the bike a little wobbly is what makes this workout fun. The 5 front squats should be tough and feel heavy; however, you should be able to clean the barbell to start the reps and perform each set unbroken.

Scaling:
Expect to go around and around the merry-go-round in today’s workout. The rep volume is low, and so is the loading. This should allow you to push the pace for the entire duration of the workout. Advanced athletes should try to maintain unbroken reps for as many sets as possible. Less-experienced athletes should scale the movements to perform a single round in 2 minutes or less. That said, we could see advanced athletes maintaining a single round every minute.

Today’s workout is a repeat from a previous CrossFit Open. If you have completed this workout before, look back and try to beat your score. There are two ways to attack: If you are capable of performing the workout as prescribed, but the volume in each round is going to keep you from moving quickly, perform the workout as prescribed and see how far you can get. Alternatively, scale the movements so you can push yourself to complete at least 2 rounds.

♀ 65 lb
♂ 95 lb

Post rounds and reps to comments.

Scaling:
Today’s workout is a fast couplet. Expect your grip to be taxed on both movements. Double-unders should not take more than 45 seconds each round. Intermediate athletes should choose a number of double-unders they can consistently achieve within 30 seconds. If necessary, reduce the reps or perform attempts for a given amount of time each round. The load of the barbell should be light. Over the course of the workout, the load may even be annoying because you want to put it down, but there is no reason to do so. Push for unbroken rounds and manage your transition times.

Scaling:
Nancy: Choose a load that allows you to complete most of the OHS unbroken. The challenge of this workout is to keep an aggressive pace on each element knowing that neither the lifting nor the running are so demanding on their own that you’ll need extended rests. Advanced athletes should resist the temptation to add load and instead commit to a run pace that’s just a little too hot.

Helen: Most athletes should aim to complete the swings and pull-ups unbroken. If you anticipate needing to break either movement more than one or two times, reduce the weight of the swings and consider completing ring rows instead of pull-ups. If you can complete Helen in less than 8 minutes, consider trying Helena from this year’s Games.
