Daniel Stephan Posted June 6, 2016 Share Posted June 6, 2016 Hello everyone! This is something I've been wondering for a long time about and I beg someone of you to shed some light. Whenever I watch a video of a top handbalancer, I often notice, how far back they can take their head. They often look very clearly into the ground like in a typical banana handstand, but their alignment is perfect. I wonder, how they do this, because whenever I try and go from this "peek throgh the gap between your eyebrows to barely see your thumbs"-head position to a position with clear vision of my hands, my shoulder angle closes and I fall back out of my handstand if I don't arch my back. So I wonder, how do they keep their shoulders in flexion while sticking the head this far out? Is this just a matter of neck flexibility? Any input is very welcome! For reference, this is a picture of Andrii Bondarenko that I found: Spoiler Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
