Lock it Out

Workout #3 of the 2019 CrossFit Open introduced a new movement; strict handstand push-ups. I’m normally thrilled to have a gymnastics movement in the mix but these are my least favorite.

Let’s break down this workout, Dumbbell overhead walking lunges are just awkward and slow, I switched arms every 25ft which kept me moving.
Dumbbell box step ups were not horrible besides the first 10, transitioning from the lungs to a weighted step-up was painful at first but my legs came around.

It was all about finishing the lunges and step ups as fast as I could to give myself as much time as possible on the wall. I completed 20 HSPU in 3:45 with several no reps. To be honest it was the goal I set in my head before starting the workout. looking back at my form, I could have moved my hands 3 inches off the wall, this would have prevented me from falling off as much as I did. Guess I will need to rest the workout another time.

For Time:
200ft. Dumbbell Overhead Walking Lunge (50/35lbs)
50 Dumbbell Box Step-ups (50/35lbs)
50 Strict Handstand Push-ups
200 ft. Handstand Walk

10 minute cap. If not completed, record total reps.

Score: 110
Tie break 6:15
