Today we will be learning a skill that will not only build upper body + core strength and increase your confidence in going upside down; it will put hundreds of dirty footprints all over our fairly recently painted white walls 😉 Just as important, your progress and hard work with wall walks will directly transfer into other gymnastics movements, such as hand stands, hand stand push-ups, and hand stand walks. Here’s a video from the Reebok CrossFit 1 box on how to properly complete a wall walk. As always, pay special attention to: 1) Where the athlete starts. 2) Where the athlete is going to. 3) Where the athlete finishes.
After we watch the video, we’ll spend about 5 minutes to practice wall walks before kicking off our workout:
