Got a spicy one for you this week. Handstand push-ups are tough as it is, so why add a deficit? Because the range of motion in CrossFit is crucial, and if you don't have the strength to get out of the deficit, it's a clear area and need for improvement.
It's something we are constantly talking about and discussing. The need for a higher range of motion. Humans aren't meant to be sedentary creatures, we were built to move.
Anyway, as it is, this week's WOD of the week is coming to you from Lauren, who trains at who trains at CrossFit Jaarkhu.
Don't forget to post your times in the comments down below, and be sure to watch the videos on how to properly perform the deficit handstand pushup. Oh, also....front rack lunges totally suck. Time to sign up for the pain train and pay the man.
8 min AMRAP
5 deficit HSPU (3 45’s for men/ 2 45’s for women)
Front rack walking lunch 135/95 for 30 feet
