NerdStrong Gym - Handstands and Sprints
We started the workout with a Skill and it's one of my favorites... Handstands. I've always been able to do handstands and back in my youth I was even able to walk around on them... though I can't do that.. yet. I am able to get up with ease and impress my fellow NerdStrongers. So that's always nice.
After we did our 4 handstands we moved on to L-Sit which were alot tougher.. not because they are hard, they just take a lot of core strength which I'm still working on improving. We went back and forth between Handstands Holds and L-Sits for about 15 minutes. What was really awesome is that there were several NerdStronger who had never done a handstand before and today they accomplished it for the first time.
The first round wasn't to taxing but we had to do this another 2 times for a total of 3 rounds. When I got to the final Wall Sit coaches requested that instead of the :30 second hold that we hold for as long as we can. I did barely over :30 seconds as my legs weren't having any more of it.
This was a fun workout, tough at times but fun as are most of the NerdStrong workouts. Thanks to coach Blair and coach Andrew for getting us through it.
