Guest Demond Thompson Posted July 28, 2008 Share Posted July 28, 2008 First of all, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Demond and I'm 34 y/o and I have always admired gymnasts for the athleticism. I've started down the road to learning handbalancing. I have quite a few goals, but I'm concentrating on only 2 right now: the planche pushup and free handstand, which compliment each other I've noticed. Here's my problem. I have some muscle tension in the front of my neck that acts up when I do too much volume and I back off when necessary. Unfortunately, it really kills my practice because it doesn't usually take too much before I have problems. One frog stand or a couple of handstands sometimes will do it. I'm strong enough and my balance has increased by leaps and bounds, but my weakest link is my neck. Any suggestions?Thanks in advance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
