Workout Tip

Handstand Push Ups: athletes should be able to complete each round of handstand push-ups in unbroken sets. Scale reps if needed. Scale movement to strict Barbell press at a load that is challenging and can be completed in unbroken sets.

Sumo Deadlift High Pull: athlete should be able to complete each round in unbroken sets. Scale load as needed.

Box Jump: scale to a height that athletes feel comfortable jumping to and stepping down. Scale to step ups.
