Row, Hollow Rock, Handstand Push-up – Tuesday

The morning crew blasts through burpees. They make them look so easy, guess we'll need to program more of them. :)

The morning crew blasts through burpees. They make them look so easy, guess we’ll need to program more of them. :)

Tuesday’s WOD

15 min AMRAP:

  • 400 meter row
  • 15 hollow rocks
  • Max Handstand Push-ups

Score total rounds and total handstand push-up reps.

Notes and Announcements

Today’s a great skill day to practice your handstand push-up technique. If you’re not quite ready to get upside down, we’ll have plenty of scaling options so you can get a great workout too.

Strength and Met-con is back. You’ll notice on some days we’re incorporating two pieces to the WOD. On days when our conditioning workout is shorter, we’ll be including some pre-workout strength or skill work before the conditioning piece (also called our “met-con”). This won’t be everyday, but you’ll see days like this more often.

Just SHOW UP! No matter what the workout is, just SHOW UP and give it your best effort! No cherry-picking or playing favorites. Picking and choosing which workouts you attend directly undermines your CrossFit program. Constant variance is essential. Not everyday will feel the same, but that’s what makes CrossFit different. Everyday is something unique. Just get your butt in here!
