Goat work
Repetition, Repetition, Repetition!

This week’s Handstand Goat Work is going to build on complexity on last week’s movements! We will now combine our crawling positions with our end-range of motion static holds (handstand push ups!)

2 rounds of:
5 Lunge – to – Hand Placement
0:20 sec High Plank
0:15 sec Low Plank
5 HSPU – in High Hip Bear Crawl (pike on floor)
5 Strict Push Ups – Same body position as Low To Ground Bear Crawl (use higher surface as needed)

*Breakdown of the Lunge:
You will always use the same leg to step forward!
    ⁃    Lunge (Arms overhead, imagine you’re an Olympic gymnast!)
    ⁃    Compromised Lunge (bend at the hips)
    ⁃    Airplane (balance on one leg, reach forward!)
    ⁃    Hand Placement (gentle but firm hand placement on the ground)
    ⁃    Foot off the ground!
    ⁃    Second foot off the ground! (This is a gentle and slight movement off the ground, and ONLY if comfortable)

Skill work
2 rounds:

    ⁃    1-2 times around (chair or box), 3-4 back-and-forth (step/stairs)
    ⁃    Achieve “pike on box” position, hands on ground and feet on box/chair/step
    ⁃    Hips stay high, above shoulders, above hands
    ⁃    Walk hands to the right, then to the left.
    ⁃    Get used to picking up hands and moving them

    ⁃    6-8 reps on each arm
    ⁃    Seated pike position on ground
    ⁃    Try to keep legs TOGETHER
    ⁃    Chest is tall, neck is long
    ⁃    Core is engaged
    ⁃    Opposite (non-working) hand is off the body!

    ⁃    20 PERFECT reps (your absolute BEST!)
    ⁃    Heels together, quads are squeezed
    ⁃    Hips are low, glutes are squeezed
    ⁃    Shoulders are directly over your hands
    ⁃    Fingertips face forward
    ⁃    Core is tight and achieving hollow body position (rib cage is down!)

5 Rounds For Time
14 min cap

20 Alternating V-Ups
20 Single Arm DB thrusters (total)

Rx – as is
Mod – scale thrusters to 14

⁃ Use light DB for thrusters
⁃ Legs STAY STRAIGHT on V-ups. Scale to tuck ups if legs are not straight.

Mental fitness:

Review 2020, find three things you are grateful for that would not have happened without the Corona virus.
