Hands together handstand 👋
I'm seeing a strange increase in the number of DM's recently asking about my abs 😱😂 (I usually get "help my sore wrists" or "I love your feet" so it's a welcome change😂) But honestly, I don't have a 6 pack (I wish! Maybe a 2 pack 🤔) all i have is good angles, great lighting and an even better filter 😉 Oh and holding my breath at the right time helps too 🤣 Not that I'm condoning holding your breath of course 😉
I'm still as self conscious as anyone else about my body shape and my mummy tummy, down dog is no friend of the jelly belly, trust me 😂 .
I have been training a lot lately so I will admit they have improved a great deal! Not so long ago I wouldn't dream of showing IG a full on belly frontal 😂 .
I train every morning before work using a crossfit program and every evening is yoga and gymnastics. My workout mainly consists of weights, squats, push ups, pull ups and of course a yoganastics inspired flow or drill depending on what I'm working on. I never ever skip my sun salutations. I take one rest day a week. I do min 5 mins hs practice every single day! I do neglect a decent stretching program but I'm working on that 😉 I am always hesitant to share my workout schedule because it changes so often. But this is fairly consistent right now. .
My diet is......err.......well.....balanced.... Which basically means half good, half crap 😂 I do my best but chocolate and wine are just too tempting😜 I'm a veggie so achieving my macros scores daily is tough. 😕
The biggest difference between these 2 pics is the fact I needed that wall in 2014. That was the year I had to relearn HS all over again after spending years using a wall behind me. I studied handstand training and worked on my foundation from scratch, strengthening my shoulders, core and arms. Poor guidance and lack of knowledge from my teacher at the time meant I had constant wrist & shoulder pain, delaying any chance I had of ever doing a free standing HS. The other difference is how I felt when these pics were taken..... I'll save that for another post 😉
