Freestanding Hand Balancing Practice
Work against a wall or with a spotter on one or a few of the options below:
A) Handstand Hold from a Wall Walk
B) Handstand Hold from a Kick-Up
C) Second Handstand Hold to a Spotter
D) Freestanding Handstand Hold
Choose a level that allows you to hold a good position for 10-40 seconds, working back and forth with a partner or two to allow for rest between sets.

AMRAP 20 Minutes:
30 Box Jumps 24/20″
20 Push Presses 115/80
Long one with large sets today, average scores will be 2-4 rounds on this Hero WOD. The intention is not to do any particular movement unbroken, so consider this when scaling. Keep the reps high enough and the degree of difficulty challenging enough to not blast through any of it. Scaling for Pull-Ups is either volume or Ring Rows.
Post rounds, reps, and Rx to comments.

Another year has gone by, and it’s time once again for an NYC affiliate throw down: the 8th annual NYC Subway Series! All NYC affiliates are invited to participate—the affiliate with the best overall score at the end of four events wins the Subway Series Trophy and bragging rights for a whole year. This year the action kicks off right here at CFSBK! Here’s the whole schedule:

This year’s Subway Series is using a team format (M/M and F/F), and there are both Scaled and Rx’d divisions, so we hope as many CFSBKers as possible will sign up. As you can tell from last year’s photos, it’s a really fun series. You can register here, but hurry: early bird pricing only lasts through August 26th!
