A. Back Squat 20 Reps – Add weight from last week
B1. Hand Stand Hold 3 X 15 – 30 Seconds; Rest 1 Min- make sure to totally lock out your elbows before you kick into the handstand – think of this as a press – if you don’t totally lockout your elbows the bar will creep back down on you – if you don’t totally lock out your elbows with your handstand, the ground will creep back on you – If you’re comfy doing holds against the wall – start to pull your feet away from the wall and work on free standing handstands – this is where our bro session triceps work comes into play, lock it up!
B2. Body Rows X 10; Rest 1 Min – straight leg rowbent leg row
B3. Pendlay Rows X 6; Rest 1 Min
