On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m challenging myself to see if I can learn how to handstand in 30 days.
You know I love setting new short-term goals.
Since I’ve progressed pretty well with those two moves, it’s now time to move on to something different.
Yes, I’m setting a new fitness goal to learn how to handstand in 30 days.
Like with my other fitness challenges, I am declaring that I will confidently hold a handstand within 30 days.
My goal with these challenges is to inspire you that it is possible to accomplish fitness goals, even when you have no previous training in this style of workout.
It’s all about setting workout goals and then working your butt off to accomplish them.
That’s the sign of a winner.
To show you where I am at right now, here’s my first handstand attempt on the streets of New York City.
Based on that poor form, it’s obvious that I have a ways to go.
So now it’s time to head to the gym, and begin day 1 of my handstand training.
I’ll also share a 4 other handstand training workouts from the first few weeks of my training, to see if I make any progress.
You can check out all the video clips from my first 4 handstand workouts here.
Enjoy the crashes!
As you can see, at the beginning of my 30 day journey to master the handstand, I had to talk myself into getting over the fear of being upside down.
Once I finally trusted my ability, and committed to the process of being upside down, small progress was be made.
After day 1 was over, I was happy that I learned how to protect myself, by rolling out of the handstand, rather than falling on my back.
For my second handstand workout, I had an audience of strangers.
Although I felt like I was making progress, I had one epic handstand crash where I fell over on my butt.
Even though it was embarrassing, I quickly got up and did it over again.
I continued making progress in my third handstand workout, but still had a few other epic crashes on my back.
But here’s the thing.
My next handstand attempt, after falling on my back, was my best handstand of the day.
During my fourth handstand workout, I was focused on being more in control of my body.
For some reason, when I was working on connecting with my body, the jazz hands came out 😂.
Love the feeling of making progress.
There you go.
As you could see, each handstand workout got progressively better.
Even though I had quite a few little stumbles a long way, I happy to say I had no broken bones.
All in all, I think we’re getting there.
At the end of 30 days, I’ll be back to show you how well I did with this handstand challenge.
