Skill Work Expansion

Since January, we have done handstand push-up skill work in a structured programmed capacity one day per week at the shop.  Beginning this week and progressing over the next few weeks, we will expand the skill work to include the following skills one day per week:

handstand push-ups
toes-to-bar
chest-to-bar pull-ups (or kipping, or deadhang)

As in the handstand push-up work, the work will be low volume overall, aimed at improving technique and ability in the skill, and limited to seven minutes or less of class time  Also, as with the handstand push-ups, we will have scaled options so athletes can progress from whatever skill level they are currently starting from.  As with the handstand push-up work, the days of week for each skill will vary.

Enjoy!
