Back by popular demand, we are doing ANOTHER limited run specialty series on HANDSTANDS! We saw great success with the last group including an increased comfort level entering and exiting the handstand positions, improved free standing headstand and handstand holds, and cleaned up handstand walking positions.
We love the continued enthusiasm we’ve been seeing at the gym to learn and refine this skill, so we’re putting together another series of classes JUST FOR HANDSTAND skill development. And with the Open coming right on the heels of these classes, you might be able to put your new skills to use on the worldwide stage! The classes will focus on the following:
– Learning to leave the wall behind and/or improve your handstands (and HSPU) by focusing on freestanding work.
– Developing proper body positions and how to use tumbling to exit the handstand.
– Improved body awareness and control when upside down.
– Strength building drills for handstand walking and HSPU’s
The classes will run on SUNDAY mornings at 8am and it will run for four weeks starting on Sunday, January 28th. The second week (February 4th) we will run the class at noon due to the Anniversary Bash the night before). The cost for this course is $60 and spots will be VERY limited (10 people). If you are interested, sign up HERE!
SATURDAY @11am IS BABES BARBELLS AND BRUNCH!
Lovely ladies of the Cove! It’s time for the THIRD annual Babes Barbells & Brunch! We will WOD then munch on breakfast foods while sipping on Mimosas, Bloody Marys, or your beverage of choice. It is an awesome opportunity to get to know those fierce females you only ever see crushing it on WODIFY. Obviously, this is a “no boys allowed” thing (unless they are serving us alcohol and treating us like the Queens we are!)Post what you are bringing HERE!
WOD 80 Wall Balls 60 Burpees 40 Box Jumps 30/20 Assault Bike Cals 20 Min AMRAP Coach’s Tip: Today we go long. We have not hit a +15 minute workout all week, so it’s engine building time! The workout is designed to get back to the wall balls to see how far you can get through them. Everyone should have a goal to do that and you should think about scaling volume in order to do so. If you are on the bike longer than 3 minutes you will need to cut the cals down!
