Hell Yeah, Handstands!

Today was the first time I ever did handstand holds in a WOD. And I did them in another new spot in the gym: on the lifting platform… with no convenient lines to hint at foot placement and plenty of crash-worthy stuff nearby. But I didn’t crash. And I held the hollow position quite nicely, if I do say so myself.

5 sets:
2 hip snatch + 1 hang snatch (above the knee)
2:00 rest
My weights: 35 – 40 – 40 – 45 – 45

4 rounds:
400m run
:30 handstand hold
10 db snatch/arm, 20#
My time: 16:12

    My facebook profile picture and photos are littered with headstands and handstands. I'm addicted!!!! You will be, too, just don't let the fear hold you back from being awesome.

    Oh, and batch #4 of AWESOME homemade mayo. My best one yet. And I did it by not being afraid to mess up. 😉

    I love that a conversation that includes both handstands and mayo doesn't seem weird to me at all.
