Handstand Prep

Use this supported wall handstand prep work to build both confidence and physical strength. 

Come to the wall from table top position. Make an "L" shape and utilize these simple yet challenging leg exercises- 3 to 4 on each side. As you raise and lower your leg make sure to bend at the opposite leg's knee to hover and accessing core strength to straighten the leg and raise the leg again. 

This will build strength in the shoulders and wrists, will allow for alignment adjustments, enhance leg and core strength and move towards confidence to kick up or someday move away from using wall assistance. 

It is important to work on syncing breath with the movements (being mindful to not hold the breath) to enhance the lightness and ease of the work.
