C.
Handstand Play Time:

Spend 10 Minutes working on handstands. If you feel confident with handstands then explore new ways to challenge yourself. Stairs/ramp, weave through cones, walk sideways, or walk backwards.

D.
Every three minutes, for 15 minutes (5 sets):
20/15 Calorie Row
15 Handstand Push-Ups*
10 Deadlifts (275/185 lbs)

*If you are not interested in competing in the Open or other online qualifiers, we would advise substituting the kipping handstand push-ups for 10 strict handstand push-ups – the pounding on your cervical spine isn’t worth the risk unless you’re preparing for the movement to be tested in competition.

E.
For completion:
400 Meter Farmer’s Walk

Go heavy, and take your time. WALK, do not run. The point is to accumulate time under tension and strengthen your grip, so embrace the slow grind of the walk and don’t get in a hurry.
