Spend the first 10-15 minutes working on handstand walks or shoulder touches
* Shoulder touches-kick up into a handstand up against the wall, first take your right hand and touch your right shoulder, then switch so that your left hand touches your left shoulder. This is a quick, light tap and then switch.

Thank you for putting this up!

I think I like calling them molotov situps 🙂

10 minutes / 1.7-mile course = 5:53 / mile pace
Handstands: mostly worked on handstand holds with a few perilous shoulder touches
Wall walks, practiced free standing handstands, got one solid free standing headstand!
Not much luck with the upside-down stuff… Tried the frog pose for a while since I have a mental block about this.

“Annie on Steroids”
1 BW* C&J
2 BW C&Js
3 BW C&Js
4 BW C&Js
5 BW C&Js
12:13 — 1st round 60kg C&J, rest of the C&Js at 55kg (BW = 65kg*), and only broke once on the DUs during the round of 40.
*so I never really know how to do ‘rx’ for women when it comes to ‘BW’ lifts. It always poses the following conundrum: normally the ‘rx’ women’s weight is 70% of the men’s weight. So when it comes to “BW” as the weight, does that mean ‘rx’ for women is actual ‘BW’ (seems a bit unfair to me…), or does it mean ‘70% of BW’, OR does it mean ‘70% of your average CF guys’ BW’? If it’s any of the 70% answers, then my weight was either rx (70% of the 80kg some of the guys were doing) or above rx (since 70% of MY bodyweight would only have been 45kg). In any case I dropped after the first round for fear of hurting my shoulders on the following jerks.
Then I introduced the Athens CF box to the wonderful world of Sotts Press and TGUs.
