A Simple Upside Down Workout

Of all the different types of training I have ever tried, there is nothing quite like handbalancing…. and  you don’t have to be an expert to get in a great workout. Here’s a great example of a simple — but very effective — workout that you can do without needing any equipment: all you need is a stopwatch and a wall (also ideally, a wrestling mat or a semi-soft landing surface, just in case.) Now kick up in a hand stand against however you can and hold for five sets of one minute using the wall for only as much support as you need to keep you up. If this is “too easy” you can, of course, increase the holding time or frequency.
