WODprep Strategy Top Tips:

If the prescribed deadlift weight feels too heavy, no worries! Drop it down to a weight that allows you to maintain good form throughout all the rounds. For the handstand push-ups, you can modify them by doing pike push-ups, elevated push-ups, or even dumbbell presses if you’re still working on the handstand version.

For the deadlifts, focus on maintaining proper form. Keep your back flat, engage your core, and drive through your legs while keeping your arms straight. You can break the sets into smaller chunks, like two sets of 5 or even five singles if needed. Take short rests between sets to recover and keep that steady pace going.

Let’s tackle those handstand push-ups. If you’re comfortable with them, try to complete each set unbroken, especially in the earlier rounds when you’re still fresh.

But if handstand push-ups are a challenge, break them up into smaller sets with short rest periods. For example, you can do sets of 5 or 3 reps, depending on your skill level.

When transitioning between exercises, be efficient. Move quickly from the deadlifts to get into position for the handstand push-ups, and as soon as you finish the push-ups, get back to the barbell for the next round of deadlifts without wasting any time.
