”What terrifies me most is how we foam at the mouth with envy when others succeed but sigh in relief when they are failing.
Our struggle to celebrate each other is what's proven most difficult in being human.” -Rupi Kaur // Let’s start celebrating one another more often.
Mostanában rákattantam a kézenállásra! 🤸♀️ Sokáig rá voltam feszülve a fejenállásra, rengeteget gyakoroltam, mégsem haladtam benne előre. 🤷♀️ Aztán valahol olvastam, hogy valaki hamarabb tanít kézenállást, mint fejenállást. Gondoltam megpróbálom. Aztán annyira ráfüggtem, hogy akármerre járok, mindig azt nézem hová lehet felmászni 🙊
Hogyan kezdd el?
🔆A kezed olyan távol legyen a faltól, mint a lábad, ha leülsz a fal mellé. 🔆Támaszd le a tenyered (előtte melegítsd be a csuklód)
🔆Óvatosan lépkedj fel a falra
🔆Nyújtsd ki a lábad
🔆Akkor jo a helyzeted, ha a medencéd a fejeddel egy vonalban van (ez elsőre ijesztő érzés lehet, legyen veled valaki, nehogy kibillenj)
🔆Aztan lassan nyújtózz felfelé az egyik lábaddal, majd tedd vissza és emeld el a másik lábad
🔆Ha stabilnak érzed a tartást, akkor engedd el a sarkad és támaszkodj a lábujjakon
Jó gyakorlást! 🤸♀️
I tried to test my handstand endurance after today's back training and I'm pleased with the 2 minutes I was able to hold up! That's decent progression considering I've been neglecting them due to my busy work schedule. And it's super motivating! Speed times 2.5 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾.
And then it happens…
One day you wake up and you’re in this place. You’re in this place where everything feels right. Your heart is calm. Your soul is lit. Your thoughts are positive. Your vision is clear.

📝 IRON CROSS TIPS 👌
1️⃣ Shoulders pointed forward.
By protracting your scapula and rolling your shoulders forward, will make the Iron Cross less stressful on the elbow and will also engage your anterior deltoid and pec major. It will also let you transition more easily through skills such as planche, back lever, inverted Cross, etc.
2️⃣ Straight Arms
Cannot stress how important this is. Make sure you always keep your arms straight. Not locking out completely means weakness in the biceps tendon and there's also a very high risk of injury as the tension is placed in the wrong muscles.
3️⃣ False Grip
Grip can be optional for every athlete, but I highly recommend every beginner to start practicing with false grip. False grip recruits your forearm muscles to a high extent and will also allow for smoother transitions through skills. Normal grip requires a lot of bicep strength and I recommend it only for advanced athletes who already have adequate tendon strength.

*PRESS HANDSTAND DRILL*
For those of you working on the press, this drill is one of the best in my opinion! I am pretty sure I found it in a @yogaglo class with @noahmaze. So a huge thanks to Noah for this gem! 🙌
🙌Find a slippery floor and a blanket/towel. Place your chair firmly on the blanket. Clear the area of anything that might catch the blanket and pull it out from underneath you! 😆
🙌Step your feet up onto the chair. Place your hands on the floor underneath your shoulders. Spread your shoulder blades wide across your upper back. Squeeze your triceps and firm your outer arms and forearms into the midline. When you look down at your hands you want your shoulders to be lining up over the knuckles on your palms. This will naturally put the weight into your hands and you should see the tips of your fingers whiten. If you are not seeing this, then you are not stacking your shoulders far enough forward. Beware there is a HUGE difference between moving your shoulders forward by allowing them to scrunch up alongside your ears and moving them forward by moving your entire shoulders and hips forward over your hands while keeping them (your shoulders) protracted (spreading away from the center of your spine) and firming to your upper back. It is crucial that you maintain the integrity of your shoulders as you move them forward over your hands. I often take my hands to my students outer shoulder blades and have them push out against my hands to get the feeling of what they need to to do when it comes to protraction. You can also think of it like the feeling of a serratus push-ups when you spread your shoulder blades. .
🙌Maintaining the stack of your hips over your shoulders over your hands. Walk your hands forward and then exhale and keeping your hips high use your abs and quads to pull the chair to you. The key is to keep the hips shifting far enough forward and the abs engaging the whole time. .
.🙌Yes, your quads will burn! What a lot of people don’t realize in the beginning is that a good (smooth) press handstand requires a lot of strength in the hip flexors and quads. 🤸♀️
