21 Deadlifts, (225lb male, 145lb female)
21 Handstand Pushups (HSPU)
15 Handstand Pushups
9 Handstand Pushups
40 minute cut-off. Handstand pushups will be done with each hand on a 25lb bumper plate and one abmat as the target for the athlete’s head. Head must touch abmat at bottom position for each HSPU to be counted. Athletes can move their plates and abmats to any setting desired, however, feet must be against the wall and arms fully locked out for a HSPU to be counted. Kipping is allowed. Head may start at the bottom position if desired. Deadlifts must come to full hip and knee extension at the top with shoulder behind bar. If at any time an athlete’s back begins to round unsafely during deadlifts, the trainer present can require the athlete to stop and rest until he can hold a neutral spine, or the athlete may choose to scale the load if deadlifting with proper technique becomes impossible. If an athlete cannot continue the workout Rx’d, he may scale and continue, reporting his score as a DNF with the number of Rx’d reps complted before scaling. Reps complete at cut-off will be counted if the athlete runs out of time.
