Another amazing hand balancing stunt straight out of Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
Gene Jackson from New York walking across a single rail of railroad track. You can see more of Gene Jackson’s stunts in The True Art and Science of Hand Balancing on pages 122 and 124
The next time you are by some tracks give it a shot. You will find it is quite a bit more difficult than walking across a flat ground.
The main reason for this is that you will have a narrower base than you usually have when walking. Instead of just falling forward or back, which happens in normal handstands, your body now can fall to the sides as well.
Even if you don’t walk the railways on your hands, by incorporating some kind of narrow base handstand work into your training you will increase your balancing skills even more.
It is also a great way to build up toward a one arm handstand.
Good Luck and Good Hand Balancing,
P.S. I am putting together a free gift for you if you are willing to help me out. You’ll hear about it real soon.
