The 30 day challenge is over.
Just to recap, or for those of you that aren’t aware, this involved two parts.
The first was to practice my hand balancing in one form or another every single day.
To be honest, in this regard I failed. I missed a couple days at the end. This was a result of getting busy, putting off the practice and forgetting to do it later.
But I don’t think of this as a failure. What I did accomplish was to practice my hand balancing almost everyday. I’m back into it with renewed vigor.
Progress at gymnastics is coming fast. Back to tumbling with a fury. Gained back my old skills fast and moving onto the new. In addition I’ve begun working on the other apparatus like the parallel bars, pommel horse and more.
And I did see improvement in my one hand handstand and one arm half planche (my two big hand balancing goals right now) over the month. They’re still a long way off but no one said you could master these moves overnight.
In fact, most people say it’ll take years if you even ever accomplish the one armer.
The second part of the 30 day challenge was to post on the site every single day. While it was difficult at times I did accomplish this one! Lots of pictures, a wide range of videos and short helpful tips are all there to see.
Not to mention holding a sale and releasing a new training tool during this time. I would say it was a great success.
So what happens now?
I’m going to go back to writing to you once or maybe twice every week. And the good part is this will be a more in depth piece then what I’ve been putting up lately.
I will continue to practice my hand balancing regularly and report on my progress here.
If you did the 30 day challenge with me, I’d love to hear about how it went for you down below.
Good Luck and Good Hand Balancing,
Thanks for inspiring me Logan. I commited myself to one arm handstand training every day through August. When I felt like I could take a day off I thought of you and just did it. My mimimum practice was 3 sets of 20 second holds on each side with five fingers of the other hand for support. My goal practice was 10 sets of 20 seconds on each side and on some days I was well able to push that out to longer holds. Overall I’m really happy with my progress and a true one arm handstand feels like it is within reach. I hope you felt the same success with yours.
