Jeremy Frias Posted September 20, 2009 Share Posted September 20, 2009 While thinking up my new training routine, I decided I would first warm up and do dynamic stretches, follow that with handstand work, then strength work and finally static stretching. The problem is, I'm not sure what I should do as "handstand work". I can hold a freestanding handstand for about 5 seconds max, and they are fairly inconsistent, although I have seen some improvements through trial and error. I know I'm going to put wall handstands in there (I can hold those for 30 seconds pretty consistently), and I might even try straddle presses against the wall, although I've yet to actually try those. So my question is, would doing some freestanding handstands, given their inconsistency, help me at all, or should I just stick exclusively to the wall for now? Would both stomach to the wall and back to the wall be useful to me? And how much time per day should I hold these wall handstands for? Thank you in advance!
