20 Sept 2016 – Sign up today: Handstand Workshop, Saturday 29 October

Join us for CrossFit 1864's Handstand Workshop led by Cathi Sell!

Saturday 29 October
1.30 - 3.30 pm
Registration fee: £40

This 2-hour, intensive workshop will provide participants with handstand-specific strength conditioning exercises and drills to improve flexibility, positioning and alignment in the freestanding handstand. The workshop will also give guidance on spotting others in the freestanding handstand and the different techniques to kick up in to a freestanding handstand.

To get the most out of this workshop, participants should be able to hold a 45-60 second, un-assisted, wall climb to wall-facing handstand hold.
