The wall is an amazing tool to use for handstand alignment, since it will stay in a straight line no matter how fatigued you get 🤣 here are some god drills - for more on how to build the prerequisite flexibility, wrists, and core (as well as prevent injury), check out our ebook (link in bio) 🙏🏻🙏🏻 Make sure you share this with a friend that could benefit and save this for your personal practice! Thanks for sharing @kickassyoga #inflexibleyogis ・・・ BEGINNER HANDSTANDS 🙃 Here’s a #tb with simple and fun ways to get used to being upside down using the help of a wall - all of these facing the wall to improve the sense for alignment.

Inversions have a plethora of health benefits - Using the wall is an amazing way to build strength in handstand before you add in the element of balance! It can help you build confidence and power to then do it in the center of the room! Here are some great drills - for more on how to build the foundations, more progressions and modifications, check out our ebook (link in bio) 🙏🏻❤️ make sure you save this for your personal practice and share with a friend that could benefit. They will thank you!! Thanks for sharing @kickassyoga #inflexibleyogis ・・・ BEGINNER FRIENDLY 🤸‍♀️ STRENGTH FOR HANDSTANDS Back home and ready for the weekend and for some handstands! For all of you looking for ways to improve your strength in handstands, here’s a couple of my fav wall drills, that can be practiced by all levels, since you can walk your feet up (less scary perhaps) or low if needed!

Toe taps are a challenging variation of handstand that require compression, shoulder flexibility, and strength 💪 Sometimes getting into the position helps us feel what muscles need to active - so the wall could be a great tool! To build a solid foundation, work up to this, and progress quickly, check out our ebook (link in bio!) 🙏🏻 Save this for yourself and tag a friend that could benefit, they will thank you! Read below for more details 👇👇👇 Thanks for sharing @alexzandrapeters #inflexibleyogis ・・・ I hope you all are adjusting well to the Spring forward this morning ☺️🌷🌻 Handstand wrist taps, so freakin hard! Definitely not easy pose or easy drill for the body unless you were born the with super strength😉. This wall drill is great to build the strength and muscle memory for when you’re ready to take it to the middle of the floor. The wall drill is great for those who always know how to do wrist tap. Just work on bringing the hips higher and holding it longer! **Before you try the practice pose, be sure to warm up with lots of forward folds, splits, and shoulder openers 🙌

Are you working on your handstand? Do you usually just kick up and send your back or legs into the wall? While this is a great place to start, it can lead to imbalances, and eventually different drills are required. Check these out!! To learn the progressions, modifications, and foundations, check out our ebook (link in bio) 🙏🏻❤️ don’t forget to share with a friend that would benefit and save this for your personal practice 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Thanks for sharing @catbradleyyoga #inflexibleyogis heres a little bit of info you that might help answer some handstand questions I get.... Using a wall to handstand fills me with dread because most beginners will just fling themselves up against it and almost their back through it! I would much prefer to see beginners approach learning to handstand using control (I wish that's how I learned!) It may take longer to find balance but it will undoubtedly prevent injuries and build mindful strength. This approach ive demoed here is certainly NOT the easiest but worth practicing, if to build strength and spatial awareness. Stacking the hips is driven by the pelvis, so pull the pelvis as much as you can and the legs will follow. Go as slow and controlled as you can. Practice both sides and hold each position for 5 deep slow breaths. Any questions please ask 🙏🤸‍♀️🙏

bowlingandyoga. Day 5: #hs4beginners 🤸🏼
Finding your #stamina

Day 5: #hs4beginners 🤸🏼 . Finding your #stamina #1minutehandstand . Okay guys! Our bodies are sore, and hopefully #woke 😂💥 So it's time to work on #endurance (using our buddy #paulthewall ) . Why hold a minute long handstand at the wall if you can't handstand 2 seconds away from the wall? Well.....strength to bear our body weight upside down HAS to be in place first, before we should stress about balance, or making shapes. We need to acclimate our wrists to that kind of demand as well. So, 5 -15 min of handstand work a day, over time, will get you accustomed to that heavy demand. #timeundertension 👊🏻 . I realize #chesttowallhandstand can be scary/sketchy! I can actually hold a minute long hand stand -away- from the wall and I STILL don't like to come straight up to the wall. So try to get as close as you can, (stacking hips over shoulders), but there's no requisite to kiss the wall. 😘 . #lshapedhandstand #pikehandstand at the wall: Second slide is an option if you don't want to be right up on the wall, but still wanna work stamina and shoulder/arm endurance. Set up is KEY! See how I sit in #staffpose first to measure the distance. Where my feet are in staff pose, is where my hands will be when I am in handstand. Further away than you'd think! Also, an option to take it up a notch by slowly lifting one leg at a time. Be sure to stay strong and active thru hands, core, and grounded foot to keep your balance as you lift a leg. This is a tough variation for shoulders so no need to hold this for longer than 15-20 seconds. . Once we can hold a minute handstand using wall support, we will have all the strength we need to confidently work #handstand without support. Even if you're short of 1 min, keep at it. This is just a general goal or benchmark of strength. You can still practice handstand either way, but having more stamina is key to having a well rounded, FUN #inversion practice! My hold was sped up today - I'll show you a real time in stories! . Be sure to check my beautiful friend @catbradleyyoga for more later! 😍 . 🙃 Sponsors: @satyayogawear @infinitystrap . #handstandtips #handstandprep #handstanddrills #calisthenics #wallhandstand #lshapehandstand

Day 15 and 18 of the Forma New Year Fitness challenge. . Day 18 - front split float exit from handstand. I decided to witch legs on the kick up every time as I need to even put a bit. I have a very clear ‘good side’ for my ha fat and entries. You can probably see which 🙂. These are fun to try. You have to try and pull your leg down as far as possible whilst straight, using compression strength and quad. It’s quite a nice stretch as well 👌🏻. One day I hope to reach my toe to my wrist whilst the other foot is still touching the wall 😆 . Day 15 - pike jump entry x5. So I tried this after training and was already exhausted. I can usually do a set of 10 of these but I failed to do 5 the first time, rested and then managed 5 the second time, but not the best form. I usually like to do slow pike negatives back to the floor but due to tiredness I just let gravity take over so I think I looked a bit floppy and uncontrolled. . . . . . #formafam #forma2019 #formastrength #handstandsplit #handstandsplits #wallhandstand #handstandtraining #handstanddrills #inversiontraining #mobilitytraining #hamstringstretch #flexibilitychallenge #flexibilitytraining #frontsplit #frontsplit #frontsplitter #splitschallenge #mobilitychallenge #handstandpractice #handstandlove #handstanding #balancing #handbalance #sportfx #sportfxbychessieking

Did some quick press exercises after class. Rather than a negative straddle press against the wall, I did a negative tuck as my hamstrings weren’t feeling so flexible tonight. It still worked my compression and my arms and traps, which are trying to hold my body up with the weight of my legs as they lower making this more and more difficult. . I’m able to compress my legs little lower than I could at the beginning of the year. Strength builds slowly for me but it does build. Videoing stuff helps me to track my progress. 👌🏻 . Sorry Oscar I effectively look like I’m slowly kicking you in the head repeatedly @otter_oscar 😁 . . . . . #questforthepress #presshandstand #handstandpress #handstandpresspractice #presshandstanddrills #corestrengthtraining #inversions #adultgymnastics #mobilitywork #gymnastics #formastrength #handstand #handstandpractice #wallhandstand #handstanddrills #handstandchallenge #handstandlove #flexibility #openshoulders #flexiblestrength

Knowing your own learning style helps tremendously in the gym. I'm a kinesthetic learner; if you physically put me in the right position, it clicks. Since I'm training by myself, however, video is a decent back-up. (I'm NOT an auditory learner. Telling me "push the chest through" or "flat back" might as well be Dothraki, especially when I'm upside-down.) • I've been spending a lot of time in this drill, which I picked up from @lizettepompayoga. For one, the more time I'm here, the stronger my shoulders and core get. Two, I'm getting REAL comfortable hanging out upside down. Three, the more I practice and video and review and revise, the more aligned I get. • If you're working with a coach, make sure you communicate to them your preferred learning style. Whether they need to put their hands on you, demonstrate the movement for you, or shout out different cues to get you there, knowing how you learn best and sharing that info with them can catapult your progress. Not sure of your learning style? Ask your coach to help you with your squat (or kettlebell press, or down dog) three different ways: hands-on coaching, demonstrating and/or providing you with video feedback, and using verbal cues. I bet one will click stronger than the others. • #yearofupsidedowny #yearofstrongandbendy #wallhandstand #yogaeverydamnday @xcelfitness 🎼: Babe I'm Yours, Whilk & Misky

Worked out core last night & had some fun after. I can hold for well over a min now. Felt so good to stretch out. Still can only hold a unassisted handstand for 7-10 secs but it’s improving. What I love about wall handstands & yoga is using all the muscles in your body. I’m sore everywhere this morning & my spine feels soo good!!! 😊💕 . . #handstand #wallhandstand #streching #progress #yoga #yogapants #latepost #myfitnessjourney #weightloss #mombod #curvyyoga #curvygirlsrock

Great exercise to work handstand 🙃 Thank you @kyleweiger 🙏 . Ça permet de muscler les épaules et d'habituer son corps à avoir la bonne posture c'est-à-dire à être bien droit. Au début j'avais super peur de tomber en arrière et de me prendre le mur en pleine face mais en fait je crois que c'est pas trop possible ^^ ⚠️ À ne pas essayer si on a pas assez de force dans les bras car pour sortir de la posture c'est assez difficile au début 🙄 on perd vite de la force quand on tient un peu la posture et il faut marcher sur ses mains pour en sortir 🤪 Pour gagner en force dans les épaules (et dans les poignets), essayer de tenir l'équilibre contre un mur pendant 30 sec, puis augmenter de jour en jour à 45sec puis 1min. Mine de rien c'est chaud 😳 . . #yoga #yogagirl #igyoga #yogapractice #yogadaily #yogajourney #yogaeverydamnday #practiceeveryday #yogapose #asana #yogapicture #yogainspiration #inspiration #yogafit #fitgirl #frenchyogagirl #frenchyogi #myyogalife #yogastrong #yogafam #fitnessyoga #yogastrength #igyogacommunity #yogavibes #handstand #inversion #yogaathome #paulthewall #wallhandstand #handstanddrills

What is it they say? Life is better upside dow

▫️M O T I V A T I O N▫️ What is it they say? Life is better upside down...? hmm idk. Ask me after 11 more weeks lol Here’s a recap of stats from Week1 of THE BOD program. Lots of 1RMs and HIIT training. I lost some muscle and strength over the Christmas break with a less rigid though consistent training routine so the weight totals vary from the last round but I’m ok with it. Happy with my starting point. Technique & quality of the exercises over quantity first, then progression. 1RM • BACK SQUAT - 60kg • FRONT SQUAT - 40kg • DEADLIFT - 60kg • STRICT PRESS - 25kg • PLANK HOLD - 4mins 20secs • HANDSTAND HOLD (WALL) - 65secs • WALL SIT - 2mins • PULL UPS UNASSISTED - 2 (CHIN UPS 5) • DOUBLE UNDERS - 4 unbroken. Work in progress. • PISTOL SQUATS - my Lordy hard as! 1 • HANDSTAND PUSH-UPS - well 4 sort of. No not really. You be the judge.,Last rep was missed in the video. So so hard. 1st time. Need to improve on technique. Keep trying 0 • UPRIGHT ROW - 20kg • BENCH PRESS - 35kg • DB PRESS - 2x 9kg = 18kg • PUSH PRESS - 30kg . . Well this certainly sets the bar for this round. That was a tough week but pleased and proud of the results. It’s off to the gym I go. 3 workouts are on the agenda today. 2 in the morning & 1 in the evening (2x HIIT Coach training b4 this evenings classes. NEW workouts) We start with Metafit then THE BOD Week2 and wouldn’t you know it first up..HANDSTAND PUSH-UPS. Well practice makes perfect. Wish me luck!
