Handstand question?

Recommended Posts

I've been working HS holds for the last two weeks and my triceps are really sore. Is that normal?

Do you have weak triceps or is it a function of too many HS holds?

I'm new to doing HS, so i don't know if it's normal to feel them in your triceps. My triceps probably are weak, due to me starting to train again. I thought I read on here that you can practice HS everyday. I was just wondering was it normal to feel it in my triceps. It doesn't feel bad, it just feels like I've done 50 kickbacks

Are your arms straight? Your shoulders open?

With good posture there shouldn't be much load on the triceps.

sounds like a lack of shoulder flexibility?

actually its much harder on a parallettes.

Gravity is very much against you, plus you're actually using alot of strength just pushing yourself off the parallettes.

At this stage i'm so weak that i can only do a head stand even against the wall.

It typically is easier to balance a HS on parallettes than floor. However, this is with practice of course.

If your shoulder angle isn't open, it's gonna be just as hard to do it on floor than parallettes.

Weib, I will comment on your HS in your other thread.

hey nickvb...My flexibility is okay, it seems like I don't have the strength to fully extend...without the parallette-it's not a problem.

When I start on the parallettes (kicking myself up against the wall) I can only hold it with full arms for a nano second, then I sink down with my head below parallettes. Will i may progress this way if i continue?
