Today was their “Diane” ladder. As many reps as possible in 7 minutes in an ascending ladder: 155 lb deadlift and handstand push-ups.
I was going to do this workout scaled since I “can’t”(?) do handstand push-ups. Then I remembered I’d done them in the past, and more recently had been able to descend to an AbMat or two, and besides now I know about the ultra-wide-hands “cheater stance,” which is legal, so I thought today I’d just take 7 minutes and see what I could do. For the Lurong Challenge, getting just a few reps Rx ranks better than more reps scaled.
I ended up doing 17 reps. 1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 4-1. I was so psyched to find I could do the wide-hands HSPU twice. During the WOD I was unable to succeed by kipping up, but afterward when Kyle was there, I did kip one, so then I had him make a video. Let’s see if I can embed it.
