I’m going to start this off with a Powerful Statement.
You will NEVER become an excellent hand balancer or acrobat without having incredibly strong abs. The Core is King; or Queen for that matter.
The focus to achieve this on the core is not to get the holy grail six pack (although the side benefit is nice), but to train your body as one unit. Does this sound familiar? It should because that’s exactly what you need do pull off any hand balancing stunt.
The abdominals help to lock you in and keep the hold or stabalized for transitionary movements like the Straddle Press!
Over the next week, I’ll be going over ways to strengthen your core to achieve powerful acrobatic abdominals!
