Really great program. Clear, instructive videos and layout to guide you from the very start. I was a COMPLETE beginner and this was brilliant. Loads of personal support too - would recommend!
Hands down the best Handstand program out there and I’ve tried several. Not only do you get the workouts, drills, and tools for your handstand practice but you get the support from Natalie. I would have not been able to advance without her feedback. She always took the time to respond to the videos I sent her for feedback. This program WORKS!!!
Handstand Movement Beginners Program
At the Handstand Movement we are all about helping beginners and our program has been designed to take you from no experience in hand balancing to a comfortable bilateral straight handstand. In this program you will start by learning about how to prepare your body to perform a handstand. This includes a warm up focusing on the wrists, conditioning the whole body and working on opening the shoulders. Shoulder mobility is an important, but not often thought about aspect to being able to hold a straight, freestanding handstand. You will also learn how to align your body correctly along with drills to help find your balance.
We have two different levels to the program, these are:
Level 1 – Complete beginners or anyone who hasn’t already tried our beginners program.
Level 2 – Beginners who may have tried our first program or have been training handstand for a while that feel they need help progressing or aiming to improve their alignment or even gain more air time!
Both levels of the Beginners Handstand Program consist of the following:
- Full Body Warm Up
- Strength & Conditioning Exercises
- Handstand Drills
- Cool Down
We recommend you repeat every week for 4 weeks intially and then continue until you find them too easy. The only way to judge your progress and to actually make progress is through repetition, this will also make it easier for you as you go along as you should know by the second week what it is you need to do. In each workout there is a guide on reps and time, at the start please just do what you can and don’t try and push yourself too much and cause any injuries.
At the start of your program we ask you to film four test exercises and send them to THM (The Handstand Movement). This gives THM the ability to see your starting point and assess areas that may need improving, this will be person specific. Knowing your areas of improvement will help you develop your handstand as you will be aware of the focal points of your training. The individualistic support is one of the many reasons, the Handstand Movement has many success stories.
When you purchase the program you will also receive a STUDENT DISCOUNT to use on any of our products in the future.
The workouts will be available for you to watch on a video via the pdf that you will be able to download after purchasing.
Each of the exercises / drills come with instructional videos and provide guidance for all levels. The programme has been designed to not only develop your handstands, but increase your strength and mobility.
Alongside the four workouts you will also have access to CARs (Controlled Articular Rotations) and wrist strengthening exercises.
Should you need help or advice you can either message via the app or drop THM a message on Instagram @handstandmvmt and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Feel free to tag us in any photos or videos, we love seeing how you get on!
Good luck, have fun and we look forward to seeing your progress!!!
