WHY HANDSTANDS?

Because they’re fun. And they motivate me to train strength, mobility, and control. And I am an aspiring acrobat.

Sometimes people ask me how to do a handstand. These are my suggestions:


  1. Work with a trainer. They provide accountability and targeted feedback that help you progress faster, training in the most sustainable and safe methods (my trainer)

  2. Do everything in this tutorial.

  3. Be consistent. Consistency is the key to progression. Just do handstands all the time.
