Coach Meriah

(11AM) Sam, Ashley, Steve B, Ilian, Reva and me

Warm Up

1300m Row


Work on a Skill

I chose kipping pull-ups and handstand holds.

I spent 20 minutes on kipping pull-ups starting with kip swings, tight kip swings and several attempts at linking pull-ups together.  Key points, key feet flexed quads tight, core tight, superman and hollow body from shoulders and push away from the bar instead of collapsing down.

I spent 20 minutes trying to kick into a handstand.  Keep biceps by ears, tuck chin and pull rib cage down, lower foot acts as a pivot only and top foot leads hips into a handstand hold.  I got one short one before collapsing.

Coach Meriah also showed me a drill for cartwheels.  Hand-Hand-Foot-Foot in a square pattern.  Right hand down, then Left hand down, then Left foot down, then Right foot down and repeat.
