Smashby’s Tip of the Week 4/27/18

The second week of Smashby’s Tip of the Week is live, and we’re continuing on to week two of my four week handstand push-up progression!

Today we’ll discuss longer holds in the Wall Climb position and then move into my favorite way of teaching headstands. I’ve always found that improving one’s comfort in a headstand leads to more stable handstand push-ups. By the end of the four week series, we’ll be discussing kipping options and accessory work to improve being inverted.

I hope you find this information beneficial.

If you do, please share it with someone else you think it could help!

    I’ve done twice the practice since last Friday! I started with wall climbing, getting closer to the wall. I still can’t touch on my nose and toes, I kind of feel scared and loose balance, but it’s a process. I could hope for 56s.
    Then, the tip of this week. The headstand is super helpful and I could get one, not touching the wall at all and holding it for 12 s. I can’t control my legs very well when I raise them against the wall and I will practice it along the week. The best part is, I could feel the right positition of my back and abs – what made me hold the headstand! My back is hyper flexible, and it’s not simple to really hold it still! Thanks a lot!
