Handstand Challenge 4: Correct Head Position

GymnasticBodies athlete demonstrates how to do a handstand with correct head position in day 4 of the handstand challenge.

Improve your handstand’s head position using the GymnasticBodies Handstand Courses.

Your handstand challenge for today (video below) is inspired by our Handstand Courses.

Incorrect head position in your handstand is likely to throw you off balance. This is because everything is connected and your head is a part of your spine. This means if you are arching your neck, more than likely it will cause you to do a “banana handstand.” Something as small as head position in your handstand can keep you from making progress, so let’s get it right.

Start by kicking into a handstand against the wall. Find an arched neck position by tilting your head back and spotting the area between your thumbs with your eyes. Maintain this visual spot and slowly tuck your chin just enough so that you’re still able to see this spot through your eyebrows. Once you reach the position where you can just see your thumbs, you’ve reached your correct head position.

Do 10 repetitions and hold the last rep for 10 seconds to find correct handstand head form.

Hint: Try to find this head position by first trying it out standing, bringing your arms overhead.
