Recently, I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to hand balancing. What with family visiting, traveling around and all that entails.
So I had to cut down on the time I practiced hand balancing. Especially when you factor in that hand balancing is just one aspect of training I’m going after.
I know there are some that want to become world class and are willing to train hours each day. They are the ones that will get to the top. All the more power to you, if that what you’re going after.
Then there are those who just think hand balancing is fun and a challenge. Something they’d like to get better at, but its not a major thing they do.
Even in this second category, over time you can reach skills that most people would never think of doing.
The point of all this is that even with limited time and practice you can still progress.
I’ve come to the conclusion that when you do, you’re better off focusing on one or at most two different skills.
When you got plenty of time you can work on everything. But when you only spend 10 minutes a day you need to go after one thing and go after it hard.
Make it your goal and you’ll get there quickly without being distracted by all the other things you could be doing.
This same idea works behind everything, not just hand balancing. The more you focus the better results you’ll get as your energies won’t be spread too thin.
So if you’ve been working on every different possible skill, now may be the time to pick one and really go after it. What can you accomplish before the year is over?
After all, you can always change your goal later on after you‘ve hit it. And since all the skills require balancing they will carry over to the other exercises.
Good Luck and Good Hand Balancing,
P.S. Even if you focus on one skill there are multiple ways to work towards it. This Quickstart Guide will give you all the tools you need to reach the basic handstand quickly.
