For this week’s Base Camp we’ll start by focusing on proper positioning for the handstand, and then work on kicking into a handstand in a variety of scenarios, as well as working on a great scaled version that falls in between wall walks and the wall supported handstand. After that, we’ll get down to some nitty-gritty strength work featuring a nice little push-pull superset of DB floor press and Pendlay rows.

Points covered will include:

  • Wall Walks;
  • Kick-Up practice against the wall;
  • Pike Position holds against the wall (the interim between Wall Walks and Handstands);
  • Handstand Push-Ups (“HSPU”) and Scaling options;
  • Practical review of the Floor Press, including lifts with just the bar and with added weight; and,
  • Practical review of the Pendlay Row for use in the Super-Set Strength workout!

To review before class, we highly recommend checking out the following descriptions and demonstrations on both movements:
