Workout du Jour: Lift Heavy Things, Do Some Gymnastics!

Today’s workouts paired two of my personal favorite movements: the all-powerful deadlift (who doesn’t feel like a superhero while lifting hundreds of pounds off the ground?!) and thehandstand push-up. 

The workout was:

10 to 1 Deadlifts super-set with 1 to 10 Handstand push-ups. This means you perform 10 deadlifts, then walk over to your wall or box (whatever you’re doing your push-ups on, depending on your fitness level [see video below]), and do 1 rep of HSPUs. Then, do 9 deadlifts, 2 HSPUs, all the way down to 1 deadlift, 10 HSPUs. Make sense? 😉

For the deadlifts, use 60% of your 1-rep max.

Full-fledged unmodified handstand push-ups are an advanced movement. The following video will demonstrate the recommended progressions:

Enjoy the workout!
