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. :-)

One of the best ways to stretch specifically for handstands is to stretch IN a handstand.

what is twerking?

Are you so old that you don’t know this recent dance craze?

Don’t tell me you’re still watching Gangnam Style parodies. :-)

Twerking is a dance move that involves a person shaking their upper hips and lower hips in an up and down bouncing motion, causing them to shake, ‘wobble’ and ‘jiggle.’” To “twerk” means to “dance in a sexually suggestive fashion …”

The song (“Pop That”) … along with “Express Yourself” by Nicky Da B & Diplo, “Made twerking the most popular dance move since the Dougie“. …

In 2013, 33 students from Scripps Ranch High School were suspended for using school equipment to make a twerking video on school grounds that was later uploaded to YouTube. …

Click PLAY or watch a feature on the Scripps scandal on YouTube.

I’d advise a no Twerking at the Gym Club rule.
