Today’s CrossFit benchmark, “Diane” is purposely placed here today for a few reasons. First, it provides a much-needed break from the longer and higher volume workouts on Wednesday and Friday. This also gives you the chance to develop higher-level skills since the workout itself is shorter. Today you will get tons of practice on the handstand push-ups as well as single-leg squats. While the single-leg squats are not directly related to this workout, they will supplement the warm-up you need for the deadlift. For today, the intended loading and movement difficulty should allow you to finish the handstand push-ups in 3-5 sets and finish the deadlifts in 4 sets or less each round. If
you cannot perform 10 reps of the deadlift in a row, we recommend scaling the weight. Before we move to the workout loading, we will spend time reviewing the single-leg squat skills.
