If you have a regular Handstand practice, you understand the obsession. Soundschi over at Handstand Diary recently interviewed Mikael Kristiansen, one of the world’s foremost Handstand coaches to talk about what’s reasonable in your practice.
One of my favorite things that Mikael talks about here is managing your energy in an efficient way. Gah! I couldn’t agree more!
Quality training always wins, especially in skill work like a Handstand. For those of us who have had exposure to the traditional gymnastics mentality, you’ve seen just how brutal it can be. Skill training is DIFFERENT, and I love the way Mikael articulates it here in comparison to learning a musical instrument.
