Prior to starting this workout, the athlete will need to mark a foot line on the wall for the handstand push-ups. He or she also will need to measure and mark lengths on the floor for the handstand walk. This workout begins with the barbell on the floor and the athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete may perform 21 deadlifts, then move to the wall for the 21 handstand push-ups. He or she will then complete 15 deadlifts and 15 handstand push-ups, then 9 deadlifts and 9 handstand push-ups.

The athlete then can move on to the heavier deadlifts to complete 21 deadlifts, a 50-ft. handstand walk, 15 deadlifts, another 50-ft. handstand walk, and finally, 9 deadlifts and a third 50-ft. handstand walk.

The athlete’s score will be the time it takes to complete the workout or the total number of repetitions completed within the 9-minute time cap. In the handstand walk, each 5-foot section will count as 1 rep.

Handstand Push Up: Each rep begins with the athlete’s arms, hips, and legs at full extension and heels against the wall.  The athlete lower’s his/her head to the ground.  The ground must be an even surface making the head and hands even. The athlete finishes the rep by pressing back to full extension and ending with heels on the wall. Heels on the wall are only required to start and end the rep. They may come off the wall during.  Kipping is allowed.
