Day 5/365: Three Ways to Rescue Yourself from a Fall – #Handstand365 Handstand Workouts

Hi! This Juan from handstand365.com. Welcome to my apartment. Today is day 5 of 365, and as promised, we’re going to work on how to rescue ourselves when we fall from a handstand.

Or even they are just afraid of falling for the first time, not realizing that falls from a handstand are usually not so bad. But the best thing to do is to protect yourself from the fall anyway. Sometimes you can prevent the fall and sometimes it’s not even worth correcting the fall and kind of just rolling out of it.

So we’re going to show how to do all those three things in just really simple steps. The tough part about showing how we are going to do this is, since I don’t know how to do a handstand, the only way show you what I am going to do is by putting myself in a position as if I were in a hand stand.

  3. Then fall to the side.
