    As a last resort you can sub heavy dumbbell presses.
    I would add that HSPUs using bands attached to the pull-up bar are also a great way to scale HSPUs.

    13:06 minutes (165#, strict dumbbell push ups)
    These push ups didn’t bother my left hand as opposed to every other kind of handstand variation.
    The majority of my time was spent on the strict push ups – I haven’t done them much since I hurt my hand. Basically, I hit complete muscle failure several times during the last two rounds which is always a humbling experience.

  • Mike

    11:57 rx’d – no abmats
    HSPUs were really bad… down to singles in the first round. They probably took about 11 min of the total time.

  • Mike Mishik

    this might be a stupid question but what are the (#,#) that some of you post sometimes?

  • kj

    Aargh, missed yet another deadlift WOD and I was really hoping to hit one soon.
    Squats and pushups at the beach today felt good though 🙂
