Walking on your hands isn’t too difficult to do. Doing a planche is. But when you combine the two, and do a Walking Planche, you really have something spectacular. In this video you can watch acrobat Maxim Ivanov do just that.
Just thinking about doing this skill makes my shoulders tense up. In order to walk you’re effectively putting all the load on one arm at a time as you do the steps. It’s not long, but it’s there. That’s probably why this is the first time I’ve ever seen the walking planche performed.
Thanks to Stephen Shaw-Naar for sending me the link to this video.
