Handstand Practice Challenge!:

Many of you probably thought right after reading the challenge title that standing on your hands is not possible.

That is completely false! Even if you aren’t a seasoned gymnast, acrobat, or yogi, you can start working towards handstands.

Flipping your body upside-down is actually wonderful for your body.

It helps by increasing circulation to the upper body and relieving the constant pressure placed on your lower half. It feels great- and you’ll always feel lighter, refreshed and rejuvenated after a little handstand practice session 🙂

Some additional benefits of handstands:
Increased upper body and core strength and stability
Great for strengthening and stabilizing fingers, hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, and your entire core
Increased body and limb spatial awareness
Can even boost your mood and help to regulate your metabolism

Your challenge is to do a little handstand practice EACH day this week!

Here’s a great post on handstand progressions that will walk you through all of the steps: http://www.nerdfitness.com/…/how-to-handstand-better-than-…/
