Try walking on your hands. (Don’t fall on your face) Did you fall on your face? If so then it won’t happen again. I am here to help you and advise you on how to better your handstand. Why? A handstand is crucial to have. If you want to improve your tumbling and stroll through progressions. MASTER THE HANDSTAND. All types of variations into the handstand and such are also necessary. Think about it. You have been walking with your legs for your entire life. You have never thought to walk on your hands. When you’re tumbling you’re on your hands more than you are on your feet. (MIND BLOWN!) So get upside down! Do your handstands daily. Commercial on TV? (I don’t watch TV) Do a handstand. Waiting for dinner? Do a handstand! Do handstands everywhere.

(Be smart. Make sure the wall can hold your weight and you won’t put on hole in it.) Get into a down ward dog position. Slowly use your feet to scale up the wall. (Your belly button is facing the wall.) Start small. You don’t have to immediately go into the handstand. You can scale the wall a little bit and keep your legs bent. (You have to be looking at the wall the ENTIRE time. (Challenge Yourself: Look at your belly button instead) Once, you are ready you call walk all the way into the handstand. (Only body part touching the wall are your toes. JUST YOUR TOES. NOTHING ELSE. Technique is KEY! Arms should be touching the ears. Ankles together. (The Entire Time) Your chin should be touching your chest. (THE ENTIRE TIME.) PERFECT technique. Hold for as long as you can. Start small. Go within your own limit! It’s not a race. It’s a lifestyle. It’s the creation of a habit that will be conducive to your training. Hold for 5 seconds then gradually increase the time. (GO AT YOUR PACE) It’s all about 1%. 1% EVERYDAY. Never Give Up.
