Place your hands on the ground and walk your feet up onto the wall. Start as close to the wall as is comfortable. Don’t worry about getting right against the wall; we are more concerned with your shape. Slowly begin to walk your hands away from the wall, while maintaining the shape. Handstands are developed by creating strong muscular tension in the right position. First, be sure your shoulder blades are rounded and pushed up toward your ears. Keep your hands shoulder-width apart, and elbows straight and strong. Try to maintain a tight core by engaging your abdominal muscles inward. Your hips should be tucked under. Lastly, keep your legs straight and hips squeezed. Hold for 30 seconds.
