Day 11: Journey to Handstand 🤸🏻♀️
Kick to Handstand .
Oh my god guyssss!!! Today’s exercise was so amazing and I was able to hover at the end and hold for a split second! But it felt so much more controlled and I was so aware of my alignment and what to activate. Mind blown! I was so excited at the end haha 🤗🙌🏻 Keep at it, whatever you’re trying to accomplish that’s challenging, you can do it. Letting go of the expectation of doing an actual handstand also makes it so much more amazing too! .
So there’s two ways you can kick up into handstand. The first is with Bent knees. Hands come to to the mat and as you kick up, try to kick heel of foot you’re pushing off with into glutes and really draw your knee into the chest. Control the whole movement by pulling everything in towards the midline. That bent knee serves as your anchor to help you from toppling over. .
The second way is the L- Shape. So here, instead of bending the knee into the chest, keep the floating leg straight so it comes parallel to the ground when you kick up, like a shape of an L. .
Do each variation 5 times and try to hold on your last ones! Don’t overwork yourself and do too many of these, you don’t want to fatigue your muscles! Remember it’s all about the journey not the destination! Once you let go of the expectation you would be surprised to see what actually happens. 🙏🏻💜
