first headstand pushups and 1 hand handstand today!

So after 2 weeks of rigorously practicing handstands for 4 minutes a day
4 sets of 30 secs in the morning and 4 sets of 30 seconds before bed

I was able to bust out 4 headstand push ups in a row when I woke up!

then 2 minutes later feeling elated still I was able to lift one hand up and able to hold a 1 one hand handstand for about 5 seconds!!

Today is a great day!

Re: first headstand pushups and 1 hand handstand today!

Wow that is awesome & thanks for sharing how you go the hang of it. I finally had to work on Handstands the other day at my box and have been dreading the day since I started out in CF in May - have never done a handstand in my life.

Mind was freaking out and yes, it did result in me having to get my trainer to grab my legs and shove them against the wall because I couldn't bring myself to kick up - but it was done.

Still getting over that mental barrier and still haven't voluntarily kicked up - but reading this makes me know it will eventually come. Sorta like box jumps those first few times!
