This "Dizzy Diane" benchmark workout - a modified version of the CrossFit "Girls" WOD, "Diane" - adds 21 foot handstand walk at the start of each round of handstand push-ups.

We first found "Dizzy Diane" in a 2008 CrossFit video featuring Gillian Mounsey Ward of CrossFit South Brooklyn (Brooklyn, NY, USA) performing the workout solo in a warehouse style gym. She finished in 4:35, impressively demonstrating a handstand walk to the wall where she moved right into strict handstand push-ups each round.
