Today's WOD "J.T." got me thinking about the handstand again. Here's a recent article from USA Gymnastics' Technique magazine (Sept/Oct 2005, Volume 25, Issue #9) The Handstand is the Most Important Skill, by Karen M. Goeller. This article emphasizes the importance of staying tight.

A more thorough discussion of the handstand was the subject of the January 2004 Crossfit Journal (Issue #17) and is worth buying if not already owned. This particular journal also prompted an interesting discussion between Roger and Ryan at the time http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/22/2534.html

For those interested, additional selected articles from Technique can be found at http://www.usa-gymnastics.org/publications/technique/

Merry Christmas CrossFit
