Anyone know what a scale for a handstand walk is?!?!

Stephanie Vincent said...

Your coaches will let you know what scales they recommend but there are So many ways to scale... Shoulder touches while in a handstand on the wall, free standing hand stand kick ups (or handstand kick ups on the wall if still working on that), handstand walk with a spotter, handstand walk attempts (if your close its good to just give it a go), plank walk

Are there burn marks on the rubber mats from how fast Coxhead went? Daaaaammmmn!

Wax said...

I am convinced Coxhead is half Patas Monkey:

Patas monkeys have evolved in many ways to survive on open ground. They run very fast, up to 34 mph (55 km/h) – this makes them the fastest primates on land. when threatened, they do climb trees to escape from predators, but primarily rely on their running speed.

Because of the dangers associated with living on the ground in Africa, they breed very quickly to counter-act the higher mortality rate they have, in comparison to other primates.


PS -- way to smoke it this AM.

Wax.....wtf? Hahahhaha

Jason Lyons said...

curious how we are defining rx for this? i think there should be a minimal distance you need to cover actually walking on your hands. for instance, if you attempt and fall over and basically do hand stand fall overs for 21m, i do not think that is rx. just saying. lol. first post back, it couldn't be positive.

Welcome (back) to Grace from Alexandria who not only owns muscle ups, but also apparently thinks we are the friendliest box she's visited. I'll take it! Props to Heather for Rx'ing this one, and heads up that Melissa is leaving for boarding school in CT on Friday. Be sure to stop in on breaks!
