Handstand Challenge 1: Handstand L Shape
Your challenge (video below) for this handstand is to get as close as you can to an L-Shaped handstand while keeping your toes on the wall.
Get Your Handstand, Mobility, Strength and Balance for 2017!
Place your hands on the ground and walk your feet up high onto the wall.
Point your toes, and with your knees straight and feet together, slide your toes down the wall until you reach an L-shape in your handstand. Make sure to stack your shoulders on top of your wrists and keep your core tight and engaged.
Hint: To find the distance of your hand placement, sit with your back on the wall
and legs straight out in front of you. Your heel will be the marker for your hand position in this challenge.
