3 weeks online course
Intro to One Arm Handstands is a 3 weeks online course consisting of daily theory lessons and workouts putting what you just learned into action. Over the 21 days you will develop a deep understanding of one arm handstand technique and learn how to continue training after.
Your supporting shoulder is your anker of control in the one arm handstand. Elevate your scapular and push your shoulders all the way up to your ear not only to solidify the base for control but also to protect your shoulder from injuries.
This is the most difficult part initially but ones overcome all handstands become much easier and you will get sore significantly less from training.
Building the necessary coordination, strength and mobility in order to side bend can be difficult at first. You need to bring the opposite hip on top of the supporting shoulder while keeping this shoulder absolutely solid. Isolating this side bend in between the last rib and the hips bone can become difficult at first but with the right drills and consistency rather easy to overcome.
The hips rotating out during the one arm handstand is one of the most frustrating limiting points there is. Instead of building the strength to fight against hip rotation one should analyze the position, understand why the hips are rotating and stop the rotation from the root of the problem.
In this course we look at all the different reasons why your hips might be rotating and what you can do to stop that.
The opposite, the free shoulder is the most overlooked and yet one of the most important part of the one arm handstand. The body always follows that shoulder. If it stands out you rotate. The shoulder has to stay in line with the supporting one. If you pull your free shoulder up your lat engages and pull the hips back to parallel.
