Mistakes

Things to avoid

There are many mistakes people do while trying to handstand. Here are my top 6:

  • Not using the wall properly

  • No understanding of the center line and balance

  • Randomly kicking up in hope of a lucky try

  • Fear - with the right progressions, fear can be overcome quickly

  • Not knowing about the checkpoints

  • Not being consistent

Progressions

The key to unlock handstands:
small steps

To master a complex move like balancing on your hands, you need to break it down into small single projects.

One of the major steps is to get confident first on the wall, and then taking the handstand off the wall.
