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.:-)
