Climbing the tree, shoulder standing

Last night I took my first shot at one of my favorite BB challenges, The Christmas Tree.  The challenge is an upward ladder of either push ups, pull ups or muscle ups.  Between each set you only have 20 seconds to rest so it gets pretty tough pretty quickly.  I managed to get through 6 layers of the push up tree and another 10 reps into the 7th, totaling 96 reps.

Today at the gym my shoulders were once again hit very hard.  I find that one arm wall handstands and elbow planching both can invoke feelings of needing to vomit.
