#HandstandswithCatieandJen DAY 8: The Stalder Prep💪

Now that we’ve gone over loads of exercises for straightening out your handstand and strengthening those stabilizing muscles, we’re switching over to some prep exercises for stalder press!! 🎉 I’m giving 3 options that go from easiest to hardest. Here are some basic things to keep in mind for all 3 exercises: ✨Don’t let legs/butt drop. Control the entire movement. ✨Keep legs straight!!!
✨Don’t worry about opening your legs too wide, they can stay somewhat narrow for these drills.

With all that said, the demonstration videos of these exercises aren’t perfect. I don’t have my students do them often enough, so Bridgette was out of practice (sorry Bridgette!!!). Now, onto the descriptions!: 1️⃣Sitting in straddle with your back flat against a wall, do FAST controlled leg lifts. Don’t let the legs bend! Start with 2 sets of 10, up that to 2 sets of 15 if it’s not too hard.

2️⃣Start sitting in straddle on a yoga block with hands on the floor, lift feet up, then push hands into the floor to lift your butt off the block, then lower back to sitting. Try not to plop back down onto the block 🙅🏼‍♀️ This one can also be done from the floor, but it’s a bit harder! Do one set of 5-10.

3️⃣ Start sitting in a narrow straddle with hands on the floor. Lift to straddle L-sit, then do rocks: feet up, hips up, feet up, hips up. Keep the legs a bit narrow here and don’t let your feet or butt hit the floor! Now this one is HARD, so don’t feel bad if it’s not quite happening yet. Attempt 5-10 rocks. 👊YOUR MISSION: Do at least one set of whichever options work best for you! If you are one of the chosen ones who can do all 3, add one set of each to your days workout. Post a video or photo of you doing them BEFORE FRIDAY! We love seeing the videos, keep 'em coming! 😍🌟⚡️Don't forget to tag hosts @catie.brier.contortion @cirque_physio and sponsor @physioflexsf !

Slowly making progress! When I talk to people who are amazing at what they do, a lot of them say it took about 3 years for them to really get good. Coincidently, the latest research suggests that the body completely replaces itself about every 3 years. Meaning every 3 years, you are physically a different person. The body is capable of change. What's harder to change is the mindset in that body. Do you want to move differently? Look different? Do you want to be the best version of yourself you can be? It's possible. Be willing to invest the time & energy! In 3 years, you can be the same person. Or you could be better 🤷🏻‍♀️
What are you all currently working towards?
