Incredible Duo Hand Balancing Move

This is a new move to me as I’ve never seen something quite like it before. Not only is Gana capable of supporting the weight of her partner while in a bridge, but she even did so without her arms for a couple of seconds.

An outstanding combination of flexibility and strength.

One of the best video courses to improve your flexibility comes from Gold Medal Bodies. Check it out here.

Duo Vladimir Strikes Again

In the last video we had from two Vladimirs they showed various hand-to-hand hand-balancing moves. This time one of them used a head of the other as a rotating hand balancing stand, which clearly shows extraordinary neck strength.

Once again, they finish the act with dangerous move using two knives to balance on top of each other.

Most people neglect training the neck, which I personally believe to be a huge mistake. Make your body (including your neck and spine) indestructible.

Handstand on an Escalator

I’ve seen people doing handstands in weird places, but I never saw anyone attempt to do one on a moving escalator. It’s actually quite astonishing!

What’s the weirdest place you performed a handstand? Doing one at an airport was a bit weird for me.

Build Your Way Up to a Wide Arm Handstand

Chris Silcox just released a great tutorial on everything you need to know to build your way up to a wide arm handstand.

Chris recommends starting with a partial handstand press and gradually increasing the length between the arms. Once you feel strong and confident enough, put your knees on an elevated platform, hands on the ground and practice the same thing. Once again, when you feel ready for the next step, add a mat or choose a higher platform and do the same drill. Once you add another mat, your hips will be over your shoulders which will help with strength and balance.

Don’t forget to to use your fingers and hands to balance while in a wide arm handstand. For more tips on advanced hand balancing, be sure to check out The True Art and Science of Hand Balancing.
