Blindfolded Handstand

This video was inspired by Eddie Motter. He was a gymnast in the 1950’s who was totally blind. While this is a pretty short hold – just to show you it can be done – Eddie could hold a handstand for over 3 minutes! Are we truly as limited as

Tiger Bend Pushups

Today I’ve got an old video from 2007 I recently found on my computer. (I’m about 20 lbs heavier now!) The skill is called a tiger bend pushup. The shift in weight necessary to complete the skill makes it perhaps more difficult than a regular freestanding handstand pushup. My advice

Fingertip Handstand

Hey guys, just posting a quick video showing my fingertip handstand from a month ago (with only 8 fingers used). I’ve worked up to this point by practicing pushups on my fingertips, then elevating my feet over time to put more weight on my fingers. The balance isn’t too difficult,

Handstand Walking – Stepping up and down off a bench

Just a video of me stepping up, then stepping back down from a weight bench while in a handstand position. If you have a solid handstand pushup, the technique isn’t too difficult. Just come at the bench stomach first, put one hand up, lower your chest to the edge of
