Around this time every year athletes who are training for the CrossFit Games begin trying out new movements and elements hoping to get lucky and be prepared for whatever curve ball Dave Castro throws at them. From stand-up paddle boarding to triple-unders,ย each year brings something new.

This year it looks like freestanding handstand push-ups are the latest guess. We saw the ring handstand push-ups last year so is this the next progression of the upside down gymnastics movement?

Your guess is good as ours, but here are some athletes testing out their balance upside down.


What do you think? Will we see Freestanding Handstand Push-ups in Madison?
