Handstand Stretching Drills

Apart from regular training, achieving your first handstand requires quite a bit of flexibility as well, especially for the straight handstand. Here are some great stretches to improve your flexibility for this particular handstand variation.

There are four stretching drills in the video – active dynamic, active static, passive dynamic and passive static. As you might have guessed, I like the one with the gymnast bridge the most.

In fact, I just recently wrote an article at Breaking Muscle on this very move in relation to back and shoulder pain. Check it out here.

    about being in the moment and eyionjng all milestones big and small. Sometimes I feel like I’m in such a hurry to get somewhere that I can forget where it is I want to go exactly. Lately I’ve found that when I start feeling less centered and less present, all I need to do is take a cue from the little guy in my life. Neat thing about babies and toddlers they’re always in the moment.

    Vanessa dit :Hello, mon jouet d’enfance préferer quand j’étais petite et que j’aurais aimer donner vie dans un monde de jeux vidéo était mes petites voitures babar, je les imagines bien sur un circuit de course dans un monde fantaisie. Merci de m’avoir permis de remonter en enfance, que de bon souvenirs et pour le concours, bonne chance à tous.
