brianmovement Demoing the body line drill yesterday in our @movementevolved Handstand 1.0 Workshop. This is included in every warmup and practice we do as it greatly enhances the ability to find the vertical HS line. ・・・
@brianmovement showing the correct line during our @movementevolved Handstand 1.0 workshop yesterday at @weyogis. Thanks to all the students who came out to share the practice. With correct knowledge, properly applied, all bodies rise.

brianmovement Slow and steady. Practice makes better and the 90 deg Pushup neg is getting much stronger and better at the bottom position. These are just plain fun! 1w

brianmovement Planche work never ends. Working longer holds with the bent knee straddle and greasing the straight arm groove. 1w

brianmovement There are most definitely those days where I'm just not feeling it, things aren't firing like normal and it seems like more work than usual. Over the years with my movement practice I've found these are the sessions that surprise me most bringing new awareness to potential sticking points and often new PR's with them.

Integrating handstand pushup work with elbow levers. HSPU are paying off!

brianmovement Part of my daily healthy feet practice, barefoot walking on varying terrain. It's amazing how many different sensations are within 5 feet () of my front door. @vivobarefoot 2w

brianmovement GOALS: I was once told that not having goals is akin to a boat without a rudder. But there are some that are goal phobic or think they aren't necessary, that was me at one time. What I can say from experience is that I've made FAR more progress with a clear path then when aimlessly wandering.

Working toward that one arm handstand with some straddle flags.

brianmovement RECOVER: floating is one of my preferred methods of recovery. A huge dose of transdermal magnesium and an environment where I can truly shut off and heal. 2w

brianmovement THE BASICS: the deadlift is one of those movements I've put on maintenance mode for the past decade, but today pulled out a PR on a weight I haven't hit since I was in my early twenties (nearly 2x bodyweight). No special shoes, no chalk, no belt - just tons of work on the foundational movements that have huge carryover. 3w

brianmovement SLOW AND STEADY: these are not two concepts that I've easily adopted but for me have arguably produced the greatest results. In the past I only had 1 speed: FAST but like all things there is another side.
If you seem stuck in a particular area or movement don't forget to play with tempo, it could be the small change necessary for the big result.

brianmovement I'd say working on foundational movement skills is fairly safe most of the time but there are those few close calls. Nearly ate it on the straddle planche at the end. Be careful out there folks! 😀 3w
  •   getjerryg Oh thank god you're human! 3w
  •   brianmovement @maximilianrosenfeld yes, was a game changer for me. I'd rather have and use the mobility of the wrist but it's not there yet. The fingers allow me to get more leverage. If you look at many a planche photos the heel of the wrists are elevated for that reason. 3w
  •   maximilianrosenfeld @brianmovement yeah my wrists naturally elevate when I attempt planche, it makes sense; a longer radius will equal more torque output. 3w
  •   brianmovement @maximilianrosenfeld agreed. And sometimes I'm jealous of those with such long limbs but then I sit back and think about how they have other obstacles that even everything out... though it does look beautiful when they master it. 3w
  •   maximilianrosenfeld @brianmovement haha I know what you mean. If you see ido perform a straddle planche he is leaning really far forward. Just goes to show that it can be done. 3w
  •   kategalliett Dude I've so had those days! Why are you doing that hand position? Is it Ido magic?? ;) 3w
  •   brianmovement @kategalliett no Ido magic here Adopted the palm slightly elevated position to put less stress on wrists. 3w

brianmovement CRANK IT UP! A few months ago before working "the method" my cranks and front levers looked iffy. All those levers and straddle movements paying off.

Front Crank to Straddle Lever

brianmovement REACH: many times the only way to grow is to push your boundaries, to reach beyond what you're current abilities can handle. The sweet spot is "just enough" to create an adaptive response but not too much that you either can't even begin or you risk injury.
This is my current REACH... straddle to straight arm press.

brianmovement Making good use of what's available. I originally wanted some extra resistance but found my legs to be just enough. Opportunities for movement are all around us. 4w

brianmovement I have to remind myself constantly "progress not perfection". A little more of this and a touch more of that and maybe, just maybe I can start integrating this skill with others. More than anything it's a sure sign that things are moving forward, more movement and mobility is happening and the present (and future) are bright. 1mon

brianmovement PLAY: it's an essential part of humanness yet the older we get the less we tend to do it. Part of it sits in maintaining the eyes of a child by seeing new (old) ways to move unobstructed by what we are told things should look like. It's at this point of creativity that we learn what it means to express our own inner nature and live life to its fullest. 1mon
