14 Handstand Push Ups or 7 Wall Walks
It's Thursday…let's focus on some gymnastics!
Being inverted with a high heart rate is challenging aka 'breathing upside down is hard'. We can approach this workout as a full throttle "let's go!" or as practice. Try to be consistent the entire 14min AMRAP
Row a pace that allows the athlete to kick straight up into the “handstand work.”
Pushing too hard on the rower may create a longer recovery and be counterproductive
Take a big deep breath before kicking up or getting upside down.
Establish balance before rushing into the pistol. Half the battle is balance. Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.MODIFICATIONS
