Welcome

This challenge will help you better understand the press to handstand movement and help you achieve it or at least, bring you way closer to it.

To press to handstand requires a combination of strength, flexibility and coordination. That said, it can still be achieved even if one of those three components needs more work than the others.

With the right approach and as long as you’re willing to put in the work, you can make this the next progression on your handstand journey.

At the end of this challenge, your handstands will be way better and you will find it easier to keep your balance.

When does the challenge start and finish?

The challenge is starting after your application is being accepted and we arranged the last details.

Once we start working together, it will last for 8 weeks.

For the best results, I recommend constant practice during this challenge.

Sometimes you will need to rest your feet on a box but you can use a chair or a sofa for that.

Yes, if you can’t hold a handstand yet, this challenge will help you improve that too.

Your balance will improve significantly and you will hold handstands for longer.
