Scaling this WOD
If you are proficient at handstand walking, perform this workout as prescribed. If your handstand walking is inconsistent, modify to a set number of attempts for max distance. Use a modification that develops the prerequisite strength and skill if you have never walked on your hands. Use your warm-up to experiment with single-leg squats. Choose a variation and reps that allow each set to be completed in less than 3 sets. Watch The Handstand Walk and The Pistol from the CrossFit Journal prior to starting the workout.
Practice the around-the-worlds during your warm-up. During the warm-up, experiment with various box heights for the single-leg box squat. Find a height that allows you to complete the first round without rest.
Complete as many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of:
3 attempts max distance handstand walk (or 50’)
20 single-leg squats, alternating
Practice handstand holds and walking during the warm-up. If you are unable to walk more than 15 feet or if you become unable to perform one single-leg squat, consider using the beginner scale for the workout. If you can complete the first 3 rounds without rest, consider performing the reps for the single-leg squats as prescribed.
