Every Tuesday we focus on technique. The workout for today is a CrossFit classic, Diane. Diane, with her handstand pushups (HSPU), is a high skill workout. It takes a strong core and well developed handstand before you can progress to a handstand pushup. This video with Chris Spealler shows some tips for increasing your HSPU efficiency. If you don't have HSPUs here's a great article on scaling Diane.
Before we do Diane, we're going to work on our gymnastics skills. Spend some time kicking up to a handstand. If you can kick up against a wall easily, today you're going to work on free-standing handstands, handstand walks, or a press to a handstand.
