Exercise: shoulder tears

March 27, 2015

I just came up with new way of practising handstands and handstand pull ups. When doing standard handstand with wall support or without, muscles are used only until full straight position is reached, where body frame kicks in and all weight is pushed against joints only.

Following exercise eliminates this thanks to hands positioned in front of the body and not under, while whole back is supported by wall. The lower the legs you let go, the more pressure on your shoulders is going to be created. Picture above?will demonstrate this cool way how to build up some strength and body control. Give it a go and you will soon realise, why I call it “shoulder tears”. 🙂
