The 1000 Rep Month: Day 51

Still on the quest to break 2 minutes in my handstand – today I think I was lucky to break 1 minute! It’s crazy how hard it gets right at the end. Everything is fine until it’s suddenly impossible to hold on any longer. I’m working out on the weekend because I’d like to get through these 70 videos before the new baby arrives and my world gets a little crazy!

The 1000 Rep Month: Day 47

I’m still nowhere near 2 minutes on these handstands… but I still really like this handstand workout for a number of reasons:

  1. Being in a handstand requires a minimum level of exertion, so once you’re in the handstand you have to try increasingly hard just to stay in it.
  2. Intensity increases from easy to impossible pretty quickly (suggesting lots of room for improvement).
  3. Technically simple, no movement necessary. It’s just a hold.
  4. It takes under 2 minutes, and you’re exhausted at the end.
