Avoid routine

Recommended Posts

So today I decided to switch up my handstand training and do it outside, after my workout.

 

Forget about it.

 

I couldn't even get a headstand.  It was a real shock.

 

So for anyone else who always trains their balances in the same environment, at the same time, consider changing things up a bit.

 

Just because you can do a handstand under optimal conditions, doesn't mean you can do the same thing anywhere, anytime.

Agree that there are valid reasons to mix things up, but also rather than adapting to multiple environments, pull your focus inwards on just your body senses and silence the mind.

Competitive sports people do this with varying degrees of success.

Occasionally I close my eyes when in my best handstand line.

Now THAT is challenging! :-)

Just looking straight ahead instead of down on my hands completely knocks me out of balance :facepalm:

It's a good drill to look at the horizon or your feet while in handstand. Takes a while to get the hang of it, though.

My understanding is its' generally best to start with balancing work for this reason.

I always do mine after training. No problems here.

You need to learn the perfect alignment in the most ideal conditions. Then you can work for adapting yourself in any condition in any time. Thats the beautiful part of learning
