Time Cap: None

Scaling Options:

  • Weight = 155/105 LBs – 70/48 KGs)
  • Strict Handstand Push-ups =Kipping Handstand Push-ups

Some advice from Jorge: “This workout is a spicy sprint and testing gymnastics under fatigue. For myself I’d attack the hang cleans and squats and really focus on my breathing during the burpees. Stay smooth and consistent before attacking the handstand push-ups. This workout is about right transitions and staying checked in on the heavy barbell!”
