The Handstand Goal

One of my November 2010 Goals was to:

Every morning when I wake up I should do four laps back and forth in my apartment walking on my hands.

I should also then do 2 minutes of still handstands.

Why handstands?  I have no idea.  I’ve just been practicing them lately and knew some consistent work on them would improve my capabilities rapidly.

So I did these two exercises every day with the exception of 2 or 3 days when I was sick.  However after only a week of doing this, I was easily able to steadily hold a handstand for over a full minute!

Here’s some quick video proof:

My favorite trick is walking on my hands and then “sitting” down in a chair….does this have ANY hope of a practical use in the future?  NOT A CHANCE! But it’s kind of fun :-)

    If you point your toes, you will be able to maintain a greater sense of balance, as well as, further toning your gluts and calfs. Have you ever went to a spin class? Thoughts?
