Handstand Challenge 5: Fingertips to Wall
GB Athlete performs a handstand with fingers to wall, inspired by our Handstand Courses.
Your handstand challenge for today (video below) is inspired by our Handstand Courses.
Your challenge is to kick into a handstand with your finger tips as close as possible to the wall.
Get Your Handstand, Mobility, Strength and Balance for 2017!
Start by placing your hands as close as you can to the wall and make sure to keep your elbows straight as you kick into your handstand. Shrug in your shoulders and use the muscles in your back rather than kicking too hard to lift yourself up. Hold your handstand for 30 seconds.
Hint: Consistency is the key here. In order to build your handstand shape and form, continually practice your handstand and keep in mind all the tips you’ve learned so far. Each time you practice, try to get a little closer to the wall.
