How to get the best outcome of the program?
The best way to improve your handstand practice is by doing a little bit every day. You want to slowly build your strength and endurance so that your muscles, tendons and ligaments have time to adjust. If you are like most people, most of your life has been spent on your feet. Building the strength to support your entire body weight on your hands and wrists takes both time, patience and dedication. Don’t think so much about intensity as consistency. Show up every day and do the work, but do not push to the point of pain and certainly do not continue to push if you have shoulder or wrist pain! Be sure to dedicate time for mobility work for your wrists, shoulders, hamstrings and hips as well, since this will greatly benefit your handstand practice!!! Good Luck!
What are the goals of the program?
This is just a collection of ALL the handstand classes that I have made for this channel in one place.
While there is no set sequence or order to do these in, try to practice handstands a little each day. This will get your body, brain and nervous system accustomed to being upside down and you won’t have to “get over your fear” every single time or try to remember what you learned the last time.
Lastly, after your practice try to set a couple of minutes aside to film yourself in a handstand and study what you see. Reach out to me via the app and have me take a look too! You can learn loads by taking a look at your form and trying to improve! Good luck! 👍
How to schedule the program into a week?
I’ve added lots of short handstand workout so that you can squeeze in a practice just about anytime and anywhere.
What works for me? Just make it a habit! You don’t have to go ALL in every time, but show up and do your best! You’ve got this!
