Not for score of time, but we can track comments in the submission box on how we felt/performed today.

This workout flows as 5 x 2:00 windows. At the start of each window (0:00, 2, 4, 6, and 8), athletes complete the tempo deadlifts. This will take approximately 30 seconds. In the time remaining (approx 1:30), athletes have handstand walk practice time.

Here, we can cater to our current handstand walk level. If we thrive in this movement, we can move towards obstacles, turns, or even walking for speed. If we are working towards our first handstand walk, or the consistency of the movement, below are two drills to start with today to refine those mechanics.
