So here I have a proposed strength WOD which while I can not accomplish now I seek to work up to. Anyone who has thoughts on it, I would love to hear them. What is more those who can accomplish this, well... yeah post times I guess.


3 sets of

6 one arm pullups on rings, alternating hands (3 each)
6 one arm handstand pushups alternating hands (3 each)
20 one leg squats with 1.5p kettlebell while on bars alternate legs (10 each)

yeah that would be it... someday soon...

Are you serious? That would be INSANE. You better get it on video and post it on this site if you do accomplish it.

These seems crazy/ambitious. Is it even possible?
Doing a single one of those movements would be a lofty goal for me.

One arm pullups are tough but if I am well rested (as in haven't been pursuing my usual regime of overtraining) I can fire off a couple of them. One hand handstand pushups.... well we are working up to those (they would have to be with the feet against the wall for now)... as to the balanced one leg squats on the bar... well they are the easy element in my mind.

But like I said this is the challenge to work towards in the next six months. Plus I am sure there is someone out there who can do this, or at least be willing to attempt it.

Maybe we could lower the number of reps...

Hey Sebastian, how long did it take you to work up to being able to do a handstand on paralletes? I tried the other day but it seems my wrists gave in before anything else. Did you find that when first doing them?

Hmm... make the pullups weighted instead of one-armed, the handstand pushups normal, and cut the reps of the pistols in half, and I'd say you have a great WOD already.

Then again, this is after taking several months to actually work up to weighted pullups, handstand pushups, and pistols with 1.5pood kettlebells, I can actually say things like that. A year ago, that definitely would not have been the case.

Your version is definitely something that would take quite a bit of specialized training just to work up to. And I'm with Russ on his If You Actually Do It Make Sure You Make A Cool Video Of You Doing It.
