Just ordered my rings after an abysmal DIY effort over the weekend. Definitely up for this one.

Cheers, kempie

I will work toward this as long as it doesn't siderail my other goals. Working on it may actually help me towards a few of these below:
-15 BW OHS
-sandbag mile
-flexibility challenge
-one arm pullup (almost two years now and still can't do one)
-100 yards hand walking
-100 freestanding HSPU
-real bodyweight snatch deep
-1.5 x BW clean and jerk
-30 muscle up without touching down (still can't do one)
-sub 6-min mile
-50 DU without missing

Some of these are actively pursued some are on the back burner. I tend to rotate goals as when I foccus too hard on one I get injured. Several of these goals are from my B.C. Era (Before Crossfit). I was crazy even before I came on-board

someone tell me I'm not alone in thinking that 100 freestanding handstand pushups is ridiculously difficult even for a crossfit challenge.

Mark,

Yes. I would be impressed by 10 let alone 100.

This is nuts. I just got my rings TODAY, and cranked out 3 just fine.

But 50? Yeah. Crazy.

I'm in.
