For students Looking to develop a safe, effective handstand practice.
Broken into 7 different components of the handstand training and different mobility routines that will help you achieve the position safely and effectively.
Most students are unaware that learning the handstand as an adult carries added risk and a learning curve because they lack the fundament mobility (combination of strength, flexibility and motor control) to perform the position. Therefore, body must compensate for a lack of these individual attributes while supporting your entire bodies weight. What makes this program unique is its focus on both mobility and skill development.
Section 1 - Is an Introduction on how to use the program. This is a section you'll only have to go through once or possibly as a review. I will explain how to measure your range of motion for your wrist and elbow to determine where to place your hands.
Section 2 - Wrist Prehab and Warm Up. This should be down EVERY session before moving into more demanding exercises. This will ensure that you safely progress and get stronger.
Section 3 - Strength/Alignment Development. This section will help you build a foundation of strength to ensure that you consistently become stronger with your handstands. Stay on this section until you feel that you can complete the exercises with proper form. This is also a good continuing program to do after your handstand skill work.
Section 4 - Developing the breaks and your proprioception. This section puts your understanding of strength and alignment into action. Moving and developing your ability to maintain specific actions within the body.
Section 5 & 6 - Is when you are ready to balance away from the wall. These sections cover the main entrances and into handstand - tuck, split, straddle and pike.
Section 7 - Wrist & Shoulder stretches and cool down. I recommend that you do this every practice to minimize wear and tear on your body. It is also a great general cool down.
