Logan and I are always looking for ways to increase the effectiveness of you training with handbalancing and luckily we’ve found a great resource from our friends at Gold Medal Bodies. This new set of videos that were inspired by the wealth of information in their foundational programs will simultaneously develop your strength, mobility, and biomechanics needed for acrobatics.
Here is the first video in the Acrobatic Attributes Series: The A Frame
The A Frame is a great position to work on in order to build your hip and back strength and mobility. It will teach you how to use your hips for lead up stunts like the kick-up wall handstand or the kick-up in general!
You want to start out in an Athletic Stance and then bring your hands to the floor.
One of the key components you want to pay attention to is the straightening of your legs and back while keeping your biceps by your ears and driving your hip up!
Be sure to check out the full 1 min. tip below.
Also if you are looking to really develop your foundation for anything in your acrobatic skillset check out the GMB Elements program here: http://www.lostartofhandbalancing.com/go/elements/
