Well now I know what it’s like to hold a handstand to failure.
5x3 power cleans (105 lbs)
5 rounds of
Max handstand hold
10 supine ring rows
Score is total amount of time in handstand.
My score: 5 minutes.
I got 1:20 on the first one, and my shortest one was 50 seconds.
On the last one I could feel my elbows start to bend, my back got tight and I started to kind of collapse but I managed to hold it long enough that I would get my 5 minute goal before I fell over. I literally could not have gone another second.

3 max handstand holds (1:20, 1:30, 1:31)
Then death by pull ups (1 in the first minute, 2 in the second…)
Finished 11 full rounds plus another six.
Scaled to jumping from a box. May have gone a little easy on that one, probably could have gone with an inch or so shorter box.

3x max handstand hold (1:30, 1:00, 1:00)
Then 15 minute AMRAP of
10 Wall balls (15 lbs)
10 toes to bar
10 box jumps (20”)
Finished 5 complete rounds, and just two box jumps shy of a sixth.
I couldn’t get the swing on the toes to bar for the first half, so it went really really slow. I ended up doing knees to elbows for the last half so I could get the swing. My feet weren’t touching the bar, but they were damn close for most of them.
And I successfully avoided tearing my hands.

Medball races. What ridiculousness.
Two teams, each person in the team taking turns throwing a 20lb medball as far as they could across a 100m field, 15 rounds. My team lost. I think I would have liked it better if it was partner or singles. It didn’t seem like much work.
I didn’t break a sweat, but that might have been because it was 40 degrees and I was in shorts and a t-shirt.
There was another WOD after that, but I had already started working on back squats by the time they started, and they had a limited number of sleds. I wish I had joined them, but I did find my 3 rep max (150) and worked on handstand push ups a little bit.

Worked on handstands and double unders, then did
3 rounds of
20 air squats
20 hand release push-ups
Had a friend over and we did it outside since the weather was so nice, then cooled off and went for a bike ride. Pretty fun.
