10×1 Lunge Kick to Freestanding handstand OR Handstand Walk practice

Have some fun with the skill work today! Make several attempts to kick into and hold a free standing handstand.  For beginners start by just gently rocking up into the upside down position and increase the height of your legs with each attempt.  Don’t go all out in the beginning and turn over too far.  Make sure to start with locked out arms and have a bail out plan or partner assist in place so you don’t come crashing down.  If you are new to this skill start against a wall with some handstand holds or wall walks if you are not quite ready to kick up yet.  If you are comfortable kicking in to a freestanding handstand on your own spend todays skill work time practicing walking on your hands!

Workout notes: Today’s workout will be scored as you would score the workout “Fight Gone Bad”. Count your total number of reps accumulated across all stations and rounds to come up with one score.  You will be working for a total of 30 seconds on each movement with 30 seconds to recover and move to your next station. Each “round” will include all 3 stations and last 3 minutes so you have a total of 21 rounds, hitting each movement 7 times.   There is rest after each movement so use your best effort to work continuously at each station. This an interval style workout in a longer time domain lasting 21 minutes so the potential for a high amount of volume is present. If you are new to CrossFit or that level of volume consider scaling to 4 or 5 rounds.
