Isometric Handstand Drills

Explore isometric drills designed to strengthen your handstand skills. Class begins with warm-ups that focus on shoulder mobility and rotation and then moves into a standing side bend. After that, you'll grab a strap and a block for your first isometric drill: a standing practice that focuses on adduction and abduction of the arms and legs. You'll then integrate those actions in a couple of rounds of downward facing dog before progressing to an L handstand at the wall. In the final drill, you'll "light up" (i.e., awaken and engage) the front and back sides of the body from supine and prone positions. Then you'll put everything together in two rounds of handstand at the wall.

Props: strap, block, bolster
