It’s a beautiful day here in Virginia so we decided to take a casual 400m lap around the block… Since the start of connectivity practice everyone in our training group at Outlaw HQ has at least doubled their handstand walk distance.

Handstand Hold 3×0:20 with Perfect Form
Skills and Drills
Wall Walk, 3×10 with Perfect Form
Start in a perfect hollow body push-up position, walk your feet up the wall and immediately push out your shoulders to eliminate your shoulder angle. We are focusing on finding open shoulders fast. Complete the walk all the way into the wall and pause in the perfect handstand shape that we have been practicing. Take these slow, it should be taxing on your shoulders.
Quick question – haven’t see this addressed, but I haven’t had a chance to go through every post… Is it recommended to perform these drills/stretches before or after the Outlaw programming? Thanks.
Our athletes use Connectivity as their warmup.
Kaitlin – any particular tips on HS walking? I used to be mediocre at them, then had wrist surgery and they’ve gotten worse (if that was possible). Thanks!
Send me some video and I’ll take a look!
