The Handstand


I gave myself one month to nail a handstand, and by nailing, I mean be able to hold a handstand absolutely still like what you see the platform divers do. I didn't quite "nail" it, but I sure did improve from where I started. It's all about setting goals folks and I'm not done with this handstand thing, I will nail it.

Life is about a lot of stuff. Sure goals are one thing, but so many other things are out of our control. Julia did not choose her husband to have cancer. My step-mom did not choose to be a paraplegic.

We all have to deal with stuff, yeah some of us are healthy'ish and can hit some goals, but life is about more than that.

Life is a lot about the things we have no control over too.

IMHO.

Best of luck Kiet. I like ya. :) I like having guys on my list I can give xoxoxo's to.

You are comfortable in your own skin. Nothing wrong with that. :)

I love it!! You were getting it more on week two against the wall. Head tucked more! Must.Have.Handstand.Contest. when we meet again!

At this rate you will be doing dives from a handstand position in no time!

Love it! Tuck your chin in and get extension through your shoulders... keep your core super tight. I used to be a platform diver (sort of- 5M only- but my first dive off 5M was the handstand somersault. :)
