Techniques to Work Towards a Press Handstand.
I never did think I would be able to do this – and sure, I still have work to do before I can float up effortlessly in the middle of a room, balance for five minutes while doing some upside down fancy things with my legs yet not fall backwards! But, I I can tell you that for most things like this, it is about 20% strength and about 80% technique. Most body builders – indeed most people – are naturally stronger than I am but hardly any body builders can do this. And that’s my point.

One reason I hit the wall and it wasn’t so graceful in this clip was because I was explaining and thinking so that I could capture the moment on video.

Over-thinking and desire to achieve however, suddenly turns her into a dead weight and then I cannot help and nothing happens.Read More
Happy 2015 everyone and welcome to the next phase of life! The school holidays have gone very quickly – right now, there is only a week or so to go. Then it will be time to make time and begin the process of moving towards some of the goals many of us have put into place for this year.
