So today I’m going to talk a little about handstands, specifically on bars. Basically my philosophy is, you can’t be in handstands/doing handstands too much on bars. Now hang on a sec, there is a contingency to that, that isn’t the case if your handstands are in bad shapes. If they are, pike handstands and other drills are your best friends and you can never do THOSE too much.
This first video is a GREAT drill. I really like this set-up, I actually used it for the first time just the other day and it worked out great. It gave the kids a much better body awareness and the shapes that came out of it were REALLY nice.
This second video has SO MANY different drills that kids can do in handstand. Whether they are level 4s and just starting to learn about one arm handstands or level 8s and learning to do blinds there is something in here for everyone.
Not to worry!
