handstand on a flag

This partner stunt has been around for many years. The first one I ever saw was Dominic Lacasse.

But I’ve seen it more often lately. A couple of examples

Is it a bit of a meme?

The gymnast selfie challange!

Take a selfie while in a handstand, but don’t fall on your face!

my wall handstand program

The most valuable few minutes of my workouts is this series of exercises. I recommend all advanced gymnasts use it daily.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

For the video I used an air filled Power Launch mat in order to slope the wall, but any wall works.

If wrists get sore, support the hands on blocks, a floor bar or a low beam.

Drills were shown by competitive Artistic gymnasts at Gymnastics Adventure, Regina, Canada.

Inspiration from CanAm Gymnastics Saskatoon circa 1997.

Stacy Clark:

Dear Normal People,

Don’t be discouraged; you’re probably really good at grocery shopping or something. :-)

half straddle press position

The most difficult phase of the swing or press is this — hands, shoulders, hips over the base of support.

The more hip flexion, the more straddled the split, the better.

Practice jumping or pressing to this position against the wall.

handstand in Namibia

I’m on holiday.

There seems to be something wrong with the line of gravity in these dunes. :-)

Just arrived Swakopmund, Namibia’s Adventure capital.

Will be dropping by the gym today. American coach Joe Softich is here right now. The club is happy to host visiting coaches if you’re planning a future Namibian holiday.

EVOLUTION OF THE HANDSTAND

Former U.S. Champion Dave Durante:

Part 1-The Bad: legs bent, head out, bent elbows, flexed feet, big lower back arch, legs apart. …

Part 2- The Old School: legs are tight/together and elbows are locked, but head is still way out of line and lower back is still in an arch position. Lots of unnecessary angles …

Part 3- The Good: whole body is stacked…feet over knees, knees over hips, hips over shoulders, shoulders over elbows, elbows over hands. This is your POSITION OF MAXIMUM POTENTIAL. …

Coincidentally, I was just chatting with Handstand Homework author Carrie Spender Lennox. She feels we need MORE and BETTER materials for explaining common errors.

She’ll love this video. :-)
