Frequently Asked Questions

What are the goals of the program?
To build the strength & confidence to achieve a handstand kick up to the wall
How to get the best outcome of the program?
Practice with intention. Think of the cues and the aim of each exercise so you can perform them properly. If you’re going to put the time in, you want to make sure it’s quality time spent!
Who are these workouts for (skill-level)?
For anyone who can’t do a handstand kick up to the wall. If you are able to kick up to the wall already, move on to my other program: Beginner Balancing.
How to schedule the program into a week?
Each week includes 2 workouts. I’ve designed these to be short so you can incorporate them into your own strength training. Avoid doing these workouts after you have already trained your shoulders. If you plan on doing these workouts during a ‘shoulder day/upper body push day’, try to do your handstand training first while you are fresh!
What do I need to participate in this program?
This program requires access to a cable machine, dumbbells, long resistance band, a bench and a wall. That being said, there are ways to do this if you don’t have any of these equipment so please reach out if you require a substitute exercise!
How long are the workouts?
The workouts are around 25-25 minutes. I’ve designed these workouts to be short so you can fit this program in with other training that you may be doing.
