Do You Want To Handstand?

Get your handstand🤸🏻‍♀️ fast!💥2 exercises that will get you closer to the elusive handstand!🙃

I was 37 years old when I first started learning how to handstand. I was never a gymnast and I had never done anything “advanced” before in my life. I decided to get the BEST teachers on the planet… circus performers! Here are two drills my circus coach taught me to do every day.

The L shape on the Wall

  1. This is a great way to increase your shoulder and wrist flexibility. You want to get your hips over your shoulders so measure a “leg length” distance from the wall to your hands.
  2. Then, measure where to step parallel to the floor (most people place their legs higher than parallel due to the load on the shoulders).⠀
  3. Step up on the wall and press hips over shoulders. The goal is here is just time. How long can you hold it?
  4. Try for 3 sets of 15 to 30 seconds every day!

Hollow Body Wall Plank⠀

Second, we have the amazing hollow body wall plank.

  1. From Downward Dog, step as high as you can on the wall.
  2. Then tuck your tailbone, chin, and press shoulders up!
  3. The goal here is like the L Shape drill, time. How long can you hold this shape!?!
  4. Try to do 3 sets of 10-30 seconds every day.

If you do these drills every time you practice, you’ll be handstanding in no time!🤸🏻‍♀️ Check out my Instagram post to see a video of how to get into these wall drills.
