12 Strict Handstand Push-ups
9 Front Squats (155/105)
12 Strict Pull-ups

  • RX on HSPU is NO abmat, unless you raise up plates to make even group.
  • Barbell comes from the floor
  • Goal today is to move a moderately heavy weight and move well through strict upper body movements

The strict variation of any movement will drastically improve the kipping or hip assisted variation when done correctly and often enough. No matter what athletes goals are, everyone benefits from more strict work. Athletes who are already proficient at the kipping version can train strict movements to increase their capacity. Athletes who aren’t that strong at kipping, or do not have many or any strict pull-ups or handstand push-ups, can increase their strength with consistent strict pressing and pulling.
