CASHOUT:

10:00 of Handstand Walk Practice

If we are working towards the consistency of our handstand walking, the below two drills below can be used today to refine this skill.

Handstand Weight ShiftingVideo
This drill gains confidence and familiarity shifting our weight from one hand to the other. Take this movement slow. A common fault here is that our hips move, but our weight actually does not shift. We bend quickly at the side, but this does not translate to the skill we are looking to develop. One inch at a time, slowly weight one hand, while maintaining an active midline. Slowly shift back and to the other side. Short sets here - if we push too far in duration, we likely start to sacrifice technique to support ourselves.

Box Shoulder TapsVideo
Lifting the hand off the ground while inverted is best done first on the box, as it reduces the "loading" of the handstand. Over time, it is our goal to be able to couple this shoulder tap, or at a minimum, alternating hands off the ground, while on the wall in the first drill.

Alternate between these two drills for 10:00, in a honed, focused setting of practice.
