Day 2: Shoulder stability drills (Turn sound on 👍)
Developing strong shoulder muscles is one of the keys to holding handstand.
Here are some drills you can do to get get stronger in the shoulder:
1) Scapula pushups: These target the muscles that control your shoulder blades and help pull your arms backward. To perform these, keep your arms straight during the entire expertise and just focus on dropping your chest towards the ground and then pushing your upper back upwards towards the ceiling. Strengthening these muscles helps to improve your overall handstand and your posture on a day to day basis.
2) Plank Drills- There are so many variations you can do in plank to will help to strengthen the shoulders and core. We chose to drop the forearms to the ground one at a time, to further challenge and warm up those shoulders. Go for 10 REPS on each side!
3) Side plank- With the shoulder over wrist , turn towards one side stacking the feet on top of each other. Push the ground away as much as you can to help stabilize and protect the wrist and shoulder. Lift the hips up high and challenge yourself to lift a leg once your ready! Hold for 5 breathes on each side.
