Handstand Pushups are Stupid

Captain obvious has finally landed and crapped on me. Until this point, my ego has blinded me.

My box’s workout today was a hero WOD called JT:

For Time:
21-15-9 Reps
Handstand push-ups
Ring dips

It took me over year to get my first HSPUs so whenever HSPUs are in a workout, I feel obliged to attempt them and hopefully get better at the movement. And I know it’s dumb. The movement itself is dumb. Trying to do it as I approach 40 is dumb.

Everyone says so, the best CrossFit podcast in the world: The Wodcast Podcast (wodcastpodcast.com, @wodcastpodcast) is always railing against how stupid these fucking things are.

I’ve already pinched nerves in my neck three times in the past doing these things…

But today I sit at my desk not able to move my neck because I decided to do these stupid things.

I’m done with HSPUs.

That is all.

(any post is a good excuse to post the beautiful Alex Parker doing anything though)
