  • 140723 Wed – Handstands & a “Dirty Windshield”

    By jeremyjones

    Handstand Lineup

    Handstand Push Ups are not something you want to rush into. Make sure you have a solid foundation before you do these. A good baseline and Diablo’s standard is 20 strict push ups and a 60 second handstand hold.


    Mobility: Hip Mobility.


    Skill Practice Warm Up: Spend 6 minutes practicing handstand holds and (if you are ready) handstand push ups.


    Workout: Front Squat

    7 x 1 (7 sets of 1 reps “across,” the same weight for all sets)

    Super Set: Half kneeling single arm shoulder press

    5 x 5 (5 sets of 5 reps “across,” the same weight for all sets)

    (Only two more weeks of the Front Squat and Shoulder Press strength focus!)

    Metabolic Conditioning Workout: “Dirty Windshield” – For time.

    20 clean and jerks (Advanced: 135lbs, Intermediate*: 95lbs, Novice: 65lbs)

    20 dumbbell hang power snatches –one arm, alt as desired- (Advanced: 45lbs, Intermediate*: 30lbs, Novice: 20lbs)

    *Women’s “As Prescribed” weights and reps (Rx)

    Scaling Guide: 2 – 7 minutes. Scale up to a 155/105lb bar and 53/35lb kb for an additional challenge.

    Coaching Tips: Pace this as if you were doing “Grace”. Start with smaller sets and try to maintain a good pace until the last c&j. If possible, try and utilize the clean right into the push jerk (without the full stand up and reset). This will be easier when you are fresh. Use the hook grip for the entire workout, including the dumbbell hang snatches! This one will be a grip burner.
