Living Life in a Handstand

This is the first in a new series that shows an average day life, except that the person gets around while in a handstand. This is from Tim “Livewire” Shieff a famous freerunner.

How to do the One Hand Handstand by Professor Orlick
ow to do the One Hand Handstand on Amazon

It starts off with a forearm stand.

There’s lot of walking on the hands.

A bit of a supported one armer as he pays to get in the station.

Riding down the escalator, and taking a few downward steps at the end too. He covers a flight of stairs a little later on.

Finally he holds a stable handstand inside the departing subway train. Considering they tell you to hold onto the rails if you’re standing, this probably is much harder then it looks.

I wondering how the backpack may have made this slightly easier by lowering his center of gravity.

I can’t say for sure as I wasn’t there, but this was most likely just done shot at a time. Is anyone else interested in trying something like this? To do the whole thing in one shot would be truly legendary.

    sarahhazel, no problem. didnt you ever see the orginal Batman series, when they were fighting the bad guys they would have the words appear on the screen like “BAM” or “SMACK” OR “POW” or “OUCH” , lol, so smack is the sound of a punch. Dont laugh at me, but I saw a few minutes of the Original Batman on a cable Channel that plays all kinds of old shows, brings back fun memories

    Pois eu persoalmente valoro esa importancia xa que, nun futuro, o planeta Terra non será habitable para nós e teremos que buscar un novo fogar para a nosa especie. Ademais cas exploracións podemos investigar cal sería o mellor para nós con parecidas ou mesmas características cá Terra.
