NerdStrong Gym - HandStands
Warm up alone was like a mini workout. We had to do 3 rounds of 150m row, then Plank Pulls x5 and finally 3 rounds of 60 seconds Plank Hold.
Today's skill was all about Handstands. Fortunately for me I've been able to do handstands since childhood and never really lost the ability to do them even though I've gained some weight. We went through the motions on how to stand, start and finish a handstand before moving to the wall and attempting them. We were doing 3 rounds of handstands for max hold. It's a different experience doing free standing handstand as oppose to handstands against the wall. I did a few wall handstands as well as a few free standing hand stands.. it's nice to know that I still have it in me.
As I said it was a nice workout.. intense and quick workout at the beginning, then a fun skill workout with the handstands before doing another intense and quick workout at the end... Thanks coach Andrew for another awesome workout. Oh and I just want to congratulate my friend Lauren on her first handstand.. it was fantastic!!
