- At the Pool -
I schlepped the girls to the pool this morning and was /planning to combine a handstand and swimming practice, yet ended up skipping the water thing... But since I was there in full swim gear I ended up going through my practice while wearing the great @cardoparis swimsuit and checked out the state of my « true line » ...🤓
In this set I tasked myself with the 4 important mounts while immediately looking at my feet in the « head in » Handstand position. Nice little challenge I will revisit every now and then...☝️ —Workshops—

- Summer Activity - Today we took the girls to a stretching class in Paris, followed by a swim practice! (Got my handstand fix early in the morning 🙃). My girls are a little ahead of the game which makes me happy and inspired to keep exploring my limits... Thank you @marcooranje for the amazing class🤘. I look forward for the next session! Cheers and stretches! Yuval

- Exploring a familiar road-
I was thinking today about the nature of the handstand practice and its inherent repetitive nature. Even though I try to add some daily variations and small challenges to the mix, the majority of my practice consists of a set of drills I revisit with the intent to either prepare for a more advanced skill or simply for trying to master and perfect the craft. Just like taking a familiar road every day, in different weather or time of the day, repeating the same skill never seems exactly the same. This is not the hardest skill or drill I’m working on, but I always feel there is something that could have been done better (like the end of the left side part of the sequence...). Another aspect of this exploration is building the confidence so that I could perform such a drill on stage or when demonstrating it in workshops, and for that I simply need to repeat it with high success rates during my practice, which has been keeping me busy for years, and the road is a long one... —Workshops—

🧜‍♂️ Fish Tail 🧜‍♂️
So here we go. I posted yesterday a headstand variation that happens to be the basic (not for me 😬) synchronized swimming skill called Fish Tail. Getting used to the inverted position under water in apnea is one thing, but learning to stay afloat while propelling myself up with my arms/hands is a whole different ball game which I’ll be working on this summer... I could also point my feet a little more, straighten my legs completely and remain in vertical if I want to make my wife happy ☝️😂

- Synchro Dad 🧜‍♂️-
I think there are very few Synchro dads who can perform or even think about doing a vertical in the water (except maybe Benoit beaufils with whom I performed in Le Reve) which is exactly the reason i challenged myself to go after this difficult skill (harder than handstand ☝️😬) this summer and join my daughters in the water during their practice.. For now I can mimic it on my head (kinda) but am not even close to do so in the pool (A process I’ll share here during the next few weeks). —

-2 ways to spin rings-
I recently added the straight leg straddle ring spin into my practice. For now, the second variation in the clip is closer to taiming this funny beast, but the first one may be useful when I start spinning them while headstanding... I find that the chase after those glorious old school tricks is more than just about getting them. There is certain knowledge, understanding and control of the handstand and headstand that seem to be acquired through the mix of two unrelated skills or tricks, that increases the level of control, not to mention the fun and playfulness it adds to then Upsidedown game... —Workshops—

Twist Different... I was sitting in front of the fireplace (as usual) doing my thing, and while working on my spinal twist (which is yet another important spinal action to be practiced...) I decided to experiment with the following... The 10 KG on top of my head (and Bagel) is more for feeling the vertical and maintaining a lengthened spine throughout the twist on both sides. I found it quite interesting 🤓... It’s not necessarily something I’ll repeat on a regular basis but more about pin pointing the areas or sides that need some work on...

Summer is officially here as my girls finish their school year today! Aside from my summer intensives in France my workshop schedule is already full with workshop around the world starting in September...

- Hop Hopping -
Every journey has these bizarre funny moments and this is clearly one of them...
On my quest towards one arm Hopping I realized that I was missing some rhythmicality which led me to explore the Hop Hopping basics on two arms... 🤓

- Straddling into OA - Another one of those drills that evolve in complexity overtime. The skill which I have been doing for years (the straddle OA) is the base. Then doing it both sides and with a fast enterence makes it a bit more interesting... Finally, repeating it 3 or more times reduces the « luck factor ». .. Making it presentable for a post is great motivation (so thanks for the help 🤘) —Workshops—

- At the Gym - A slow and clean single rep is always a good place to start with or go back to when learning or refining a skill... Today it was the pike press on the pommels which I repeated a few times until it I was presentable...
