Handstand Walks

Individual Event 4 of the 2024 CrossFit Semifinals has athletes testing their gymnastics abilities with a handstand walk.

Standing (and walking) on one’s hands dramatically alters the normal kinetic chain required when on one’s feet. When standing, the hip is the focus of control and leverage. When in the handstand, the focus shifts to the shoulder. This shift not only helps develop “shoulders strong as hips” but also presents a set of unique demands on the body’s core.
