50 Handstand Push-Ups for time

Coach’s notes:  Post time to complete to comments.


Comments: 9

I can only do singles with touching head on the floor. So started with one every 30 sec, but even that turned out to be too fast. I’m surprise I finished the 50.
As Rx’d, 38:12.

well, I did the WOD from Tuesday…50/55/60/65/70/75. Wrists gave out…

OPT Workout As many rounds in 20 min of 100m Sprint, 10 push-ups, 15 Squats!
7 Rounds plus 100m sprint!

Not quite as rx’d – 19:03
Tried from floor – no go
Tried putting The Handbook of Physiology and Anatomy under my head – no go
Tried the Industrial Engineering Handbook – Third Edition – no
Tried The New Lexicon Webster’s Dictionary of the English Language-Deluxe Encyclopedic Edition (10 cm) with hands fairly wide and the occasional leg kick when I couldn’t my head off the book – got sets of 3-5.

I substituted these with push ups from my toes. I usually do the ones from my knees so I felt this was a good challenge for me. 7:46.

As Rx’d

31:27 – first few sets of 4 & then singles. Hit a serious wall at rep 40. Took three tries to complete that one with full ROM.

Did this after Lynne
21:21 (band assisted)

as rx’d
First set of 9 is the most I’ve done consecutively. First 20 reps completed in 5 minutes…the last 2 also took 5 minutes!!!!
Awesome time Mack!!!!
