I didn’t know what I was going to write to you about today. So I decided first to do a little hand balancing to generate a few ideas. Some one hand handstand practice.
About three minutes in I slapped myself in the forehead because I should do as I tell you to do.
So I stopped for the moment and played my handstand visualization track. Really getting that feeling of easily standing on the hands.
After I finished I decided to put it to the test. How long could I hold a handstand right now?
Now I hadn’t just done free handstand hold for time in probably two months. My record then was exactly one minute.
I put my watch on the ground (hint: counting in your mind is seldom accurate) in plain sight of where I’d be going for the attempt.
After I kicked up I did just as I had visualized. Standing tall with minimal movement.
Around 40 seconds it became difficult. Here’s what I didn’t mention. I had already done a grueling weight lifting workout earlier in the morning and on top of the previous few minutes of hand balancing I was pre-fatigued. Didn’t know if I’d set a new record.
But I wanted to. Not only had I visualized myself doing it, but I wanted to write and tell you about it.
Funny how time seems to slow down those last few seconds. It was rough but I passed the minute mark. 1…2…3 and down.
63 seconds a new record for me. And this was when I wasn’t fresh.
You may not be there yet (or you could be further along) but the lessons here apply to everyone.
And there’s still time to get my handstand visualization for a few minutes of your time. Head on over to the survey and fill it out to get it.
The answers have been very helpful so far. Thanks to all who’ve taken the time to answer (and to you who are about to). I hope you get the most out of your gift.
Good Luck and Good Hand Balancing,
