WHITEBOARD – 29 October 2012

Workload:

8 Rounds of:
10 Total Shrimp Squats (Beginner/Intermediate VariationsAdvanced Variation.)
10 Total Spider Man Push-up

Then:

Handstand Hold – Collect 3 Total minutes inverted in controlled sets.  NO CRASHING or going to failure.

Notes: No part of this workout is to be done for time. You are trying to do each movement at the greatest difficulty while making sure you are still controlling the movement. Thus, don’t do a variation of the movement that you can’t control for all reps, but don’t pick a variation that makes it easy on you. If the easy variation for the shrimp squat is difficult, try putting some pillows underneath your leg to raise the movement. Trust me, even the easy version of this movement is difficult.

As for the push-ups, if you can’t do them perform standard strict push-ups on the toes or knees. For the handstand portion, everyone should know where they are in the progression of a handstand (piked on wall, straight legs on wall, straight legs on wall while tapping toes away occasionally, free standing from wall, headstand on ground, free standing with no support). Collect three minutes trying to get comfortable in your current level of progression.

  • John Donne – Meditation 17

    No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee...
