IDA PORTAL METHOD - Handstand training with Damian O Hara

Learn techniques on how to strengthen wrists, hands, forearms, and upper body specifically for supporting stability in movement. Damian will focus us on developing handstand balance.

Damian is the head instructor at CrossFit A-Game and programs most of the wod’s (workout of the day).  His obsession with fitness lead him to CrossFit in early 2010 when he later earned his L-1 in fall of 2010.  His competitive Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu background convinced him that CrossFit was the most effective fitness program for most sports athletes and everyday folks.  Damian’s background also includes Olympic weightlifting when he attended and graduated Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ with Team New Jersey.  Although Damian loves Olympic weightlifting, he doesn’t program a biases for the members.  If anything, more programming is geared towards weaknesses of members and as he tries to maintain a theme during a week of programming instead of breezing over all skills and drills that CrossFit offers. In addition to his CrossFit Trainer L-1 Damian also attended CrossFit Endurance seminar to better understand running mechanics and programming for endurance athlete
