I'm not going to lie, it really felt like I was moving more than it appears😂. Trying to work on feeling what its like to move my hips side to side in a handstands😁

Working on mono shifts with @flying_watermelon , I can feel these getting close to holds again😁

Working on consistency in my entrances. I almost always tuck but recently I've started straddling and piking into handstands again. For a relatively heavy handstander and someone with barely passing shoulder mobility, endurance and consistent shoulder opening are difficult. Thinking on that trying to string all three entrances to a decent hold seemed like a fun challenge. The tuck straddle was fairly simple but going right into a pike with my shoulders already burning a little was a challenge. Might be time for a cut to refocus handstands a bit more😁

I don't often try adagio, acrobatic dance, but the move we were working on feels like a power clean so it was really fun!😁💃🏾💪🏾

Real friends plan out pretty poses that hide your lack of toe point😁👌🏾

I don't train pike to handstand often, luckily my hip mobility is so bad my straddle is basically a pike so the transition wasn't very hard😂 But luckily my line is getting better from this angle at least😁

I learned something new from @iffyroma 😁. I always get so absorbed with what happens in the middle that I always neglect new entrances and exits.

If I were ever to be an artist, my medium would be the human body.

Just kidding... kind of. Reverse hyper-extensions are a great tool to develop a lagging posterior chain, more specifically the glutes and hamstrings. Ideally your gym has a reverse hyper machine... or a tall desk with something to grab on to... or last and least, a large stability ball(less ideal in that we don't get that loaded stretch on the hip flexors when the legs pass the edge and go just under the machine/desk). If you're an athlete there is nothing more athletic than hip extension and balancing out the other side of the body involved in it is invaluable, if your glutes are weak and you have low back back it can serve as rehab. Try to keep your legs more straight than mine to make sure the glutes do their fair share of work😂

Finally getting some ☀️😁

Bodybuilding did a lot of good for me but it also facilitated some poor trends in my self-perception. One of the nicest things I've done for myself is caring less about my ability to shape my body and more about my body's abilities😁
