I am looking forward to start working with you.I this document –> Michael Custom Feedback <– you find feedback to the exercises you sent to me and some general notes on your handstands.
I think it is absolutely time to start working towards the Stalder Press to Handstand and the OAHS. Both are ambitious yet achievable goals. So let’s get at them.
Train your handstands every day. I would start with dong the conditioning twice a week in the first week or 2 and then move up to doing it every other day (3 times a week)
You can work on your flexibility 6 days a week if you find the time to fit it into your schedule.
Reach out over instagram if you have any questions.
