Skill

10×1 Lunge Kick to freestanding handstand

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.

WOD

3 Rounds for time

400M Run
21 Thrusters 45/35
12 Pull-ups

Workout notes: Today’s workout is a 3 round couplet in the format of one of our favorite workouts “Helen”.  In this version we’re performing unloaded barbell thrusters instead of kettlebell swings.  Just like in Helen a large part of this workout is running so do your best not to just use the run as recovery and push the pace!
