New Blog Look

I’ve been slacking in updating the site and adding new content lately.

Now I plan to fix that situation.

So there’s two important announcements today. First I want to hear what you’d like me to cover. I’ve put up a short two question survey that’ll help me to know exactly what you want.

Take the Survey!

Shouldn’t take more than a minute or two of your time.

Secondly, I’ve updated the blog with a brand new look and more functionality.

Check it out and let me know what you think. You can leave your comments down below.

Also you may notice that I’ve expanded the categories on the page. You can click on one to browse through posts relating to the topic. You can use the search bar at the top of the blog too.

And that’s just to start with. I’ve got some other cool plans to put into work here too.

Good Luck and Good Hand Balancing,

Hand Placement in Handstands

Here’s an interesting question.

“I can only hold a handstand for about five seconds, with all fingers spread out, but when I bend in my right index finger I can hold for 15 seconds on up.  What should I do?”
Matthew Romero

If you can hold it longer with your fingers bent then that’s probably what you should do. I’m not to sure why bending that single finger helps you so much but here’s a more general reason why you should bend the fingers.

Because balancing on the hands can be difficult to do you want to give yourself the widest base possible. This means you spread your fingers out. As in spacing your fingers and not keeping them together.

But you don’t want them fully extended. Keep your fingers slightly curled and this helps you to grip the ground harder. With more grip you can balance easier.

By using your hands in this way you’ll have more control and that means you stay up in a handstand longer.

On a different note, I’m going to be having a few important announcements in the next couple of weeks. Make sure you stay tuned.

Good Luck and Good Hand Balancing,
Logan Christopher
