December Goal Update

Hello everyone. I hope all is well as the year comes to an end an end. I have an update on my handstand goal. I must say that I learned a lot this month as I was working on this goal. I’ve spent about 5-10 minutes a day upside-down over the course of the month. Here is a rundown on what I’ve learned:

1) Handstands are harder then they look. Strength is required but balance is the key component and that takes a while to develop especially when everything is inverted.

2) Controlling the momentum while getting into a handstand is the hardest part. I am not flexible enough to do a proper “donkey-kick”. I have to go one leg at a time so momentum becomes my biggest issue.

3) I did most of my training with my back to the wall as seen in the video. This was great because I could touch the wall with my foot if I had to keep balance. This led me to arch my back a little more than it should while I was at my balance point. As I continue to work on my form I need to improve my shoulder mobility and adjust my balance point so I can straighten my back up a bit.

4) My shoulders feel great. I’ve dealt with minor shoulders issues throughout my adult life but they haven’t felt this good since high school. I was just hoping I wouldn’t injure my shoulders. I certainly didn’t expect them to feel better. I’m guessing it has something to do with the pressure on the joint while it’s extended and in proper alignment.

My goal was to do it unassisted for 10 seconds and I counted about 14 in the video. It did look like I touched the wall once early on but I give myself a pass because I didn’t notice it while until I was doing it. I do think it’s something I’ll keep working on partly because it’s fun and partly because it makes my shoulders feel great.

AWC Explained:

When attempting to eat healthy, why does it seem as though there are so many things you need to worry about? Am I eating the right things? Will it fit my budget? Do I have time to cook and prepare all of this food? These are questions oftentimes associated with attempting a healthy diet. While all these questions are appropriate, oftentimes we answer them with a negative response. If you feel as though this may be you, give our class Meals in Minutes a try. We shed some positive light on some of these questions in hopes to show you eating healthy isn’t always the more expensive option or you don’t have enough time to prepare your healthy meals. We also touch on various topics on healthy eating such as other associated myths, meal planning and budgeting, food preservation and much more! Check out our class calendar for dates and times for the Meals in Minutes class or give us a call at 315-772-4608 to schedule your class today!
