Tips for holding a handstand longer?
Hey! Absolutely - don’t rush it! :p do you already have your handstand?
A good practice is to have someone put their forearm between your thighs once you’re up in handstand. They may be lightly assisting you, but the real support comes from the squeezing of your thighs together. Maintain an activated core and really squeeze, point, contract those leg muscles to help pull you up. This is to give you the idea of how much you need to activate and bring awareness to your pelvis and legs. Make sure you’re entering into it with wide fanned out shoulder blades as if entering into pincha.
Pincha is your friend. I warm up with forearm balances before doing handstands (okay sometimes I cheat haha…). I got the idea of using the deepest part of my lower core to bring my pelvis up and aligned with pincha practice.Let me know if any of this helps or doesn’t make sense! :)
