Tips for Stability in Handstand Shapes

Handstand wobbles keeping you right side up? Have you tried these interventions? ⁣ ⁣

  • Practice holding basic shapes at the wall for 15-30 seconds: straight, stag, tuck, etc. This will help you build strength in the shape. ⁣⁣
  • Practice transitioning into and out of the shapes with control, using a wall if you can (doesn’t make sense for all transitions). Note your most wobbly moments–these are the areas to work on!⁣⁣
  • Practice handstand-specific drills to build the strength you need to hold a straight handstand. A straight handstand is the foundation for all your handstand shapes.

This tips will get you started, but actual results come from well-informed practice. Learn how to visually assess your handstand and learn which drills you can use to correct specific handstand mistakes with the How Not to Handstand ebook! Includes video instruction.
