Hand Balancing for Muscular Development is a book written by Bill Hinbern on learning to do hand balancing.
This book was actually for first introduction to hand balancing and got me started a long time ago.
The book is dedicated to three people. Robert L. Jones. Professor Paulinetti. And Professor E.M. Orlick. No big surprise there. These men are three of the masters and teachers of many people through their books, all of which are available here at this website.
In many ways this book is similar to Hand Balancing Made Easy by Prof. Orlick. Even the drawings are quite close, and a lot of the base building weighted and bodyweight exercises are the same.
In my opinion there is more information in any of the books available here over this one by Hinbern. There is more information on each exercise and a lot more discussion of how to build up to the exercises, rather then just this is how you do them.
What I do like about this book is it’s easy to use and broken up into beginner, intermediate and advanced exercises. It’s short, simple and sweet, clocking in at roughly 63 pages. And although the title speaks of muscular development, it’s not really the focus of the book.
If you’re looking for a complete library of hand balancing, which I think is a great idea, then I would certainly pick it up and add it to your collection.
