I literally laughed out loud when I read this workout. I doubt anyone in the world guessed wall walks would be in the workout, much less guessed the entire workout.
Wall walks?!?! They’re a scaled movement, right?
This is the beauty of the Open – we all got thrown a huge curve ball.
Now, “easy” part first – doubleunders. We got em! We do a ton of them, and we’ve been doing huge DU workouts weekly for the last 2-3 months. We just did one Tuesday. We are primed.
Now – wall walks. Make no mistake – these are gonna be hard. Your shoulders and triceps are gonna burn. This is gonna start on the sets of probably 6, but definitely 9. A no rep will be costly – don’t rush into another rep, especially with this standard.
Most important – review and understand the standard! This is gonna be ticky-tack and will punish sloppy movement. We do a ton of handstand stuff – holds, walks, kicks, presses and more. We always emphasize being active through the shoulders. That is gonna be very important.
I would guess the way down will. Basic idea – hands on tape- feet leave the floor – hands to touch the 10″ tape- hands move back to touch the shoulder tape- feet to the floor. So really – Hands in place- Feet Go- hands in place walk back-hands in place. Ensure your hands are in place before you move your feet – UP or DOWN.
Scaled workouts include partial wall climb and lateral hops. Foundations bear crawls and jumping jacks.
