(which is why they are so impressive!)

IF YOU’RE NEW TO THE WORLD OF HAND-BALANCING…

YOU’VE PROBABLY HEARD THAT:

✓ Handstands  take years of practice to master

✓ You need insane levels of strength to hold your body weight over your head

✓ Learning a handstand is only for people who grew up doing gymnastics/cheer/dance

HERE’S WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW:

✖ You don’t need to be insanely strong, flexible, or have done gymnastics/cheer/dance since childhood in order to master handstands and beyond. If you’re not getting real-time coaching cues and performance tweaks WHILE you are learning them.

(Or worse, without proper training, you have improper form, created muscular imbalances, developed bad habits, and therefore have increased your risk of injury tenfold.) 

HAND-BALANCING:

BENEFITS:

✓ INCREASES BODY AWARENESS

✓ DRAMATICALLY IMPROVES YOUR MOBILITY

✓ STRENGTHENS YOUR CORE, SPINE, & UPPER BODY

✓ REDUCES STRESS & IMPROVES MEMORY

✓ DRAMATICALLY INCREASES CONFIDENCE

✓ IS A DIRECT PATH TO INSANE LEVELS OF ATHLETIC MASTERY

✓ IS REALLY F***ING FUN!

THE #1 REASON MOST BEGINNERS FAIL TO EVER MASTER THEIR FREESTANDING HANDSTAND:

✓ FEAR

It causes hesitation the second you put your hands on the ground. Your body never goes upside down, so your brain senses incoming harm. 

It impacts your ability to find balance. Finding balance requires comfort with your body falling backwards. 

Leaves you stuck to the wall. The wall is great for specific drills, but you need to move away from it as quickly as possible. This is naturally scary if you haven’t learned safe methods of bailing from your handstands.

Requires more strength. A properly-stacked handstand requires very little strength. It’s weightless! But fear of falling will force your shoulders forward, make you arch your back, and turn your legs into noodles in an attempt to “save” you. These are disastrous for your handstands because they reinforce bad alignment, increase your risk of injury, and make it almost impossible to do more advanced moves like leg shapes, jumps, or presses.

ALREADY BALANCING ON TWO HANDS?
AWESOME!

But what comes next?

You’ve learned basic, straight-leg handstands but can’t advance beyond them no matter how hard you try.

Many people think that once they achieve a basic handstand, the more advanced progressions will be a piece of cake.

 

THEY COULD NOT BE MORE WRONG!

 The fact is, most inversion seekers never advance beyond a basic handstand.

Why?

Because they aren’t being coached DURING their handstand practice!

It’s critical to have a coach for real-time form cues as you’re upside down. Without this instant feedback, you will quickly build bad habits that will halt any advancements you try to make in the future.

ANYONE CAN UNLOCK THEIR FIRST HANDSTAND AND ADVANCE THEIR HAND-BALANCING & BODY MASTERY SKILLS BEYOND A LEVEL THEY NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE.

FLEX-ED family! I did a tuck! And it felt LIGHT!!! Omg I’m completely blown away about this new revelation 🤯 maybe tuck doesn’t have to be my nemesis for life and maybe my shoulders aren’t so weak if I just put them in the right position. And I even pointed my toes! It’s so pretty I want to screenshot and frame it 😂😍😂😍
