Handstands on the wall
Good for upper body strength. You don't need to go all the way up to a handstand to start, but you will be able to get higher as you get stronger.
Find a good place to do it, some suggestions:
- Use a wall where you don't mind repainting (or make sure you have clean feet) - only walk your feet up an interior wall, never kick up unless the wall is wood or brick (you don't want to kick a hole in the wall).
- Doors tend to have enamel paint which is easier to wash clean (but make sure the door is closed!).
- Outside on an exterior wall
Here's how to do it...
- Stand with your back against the wall.
- Squat down and put your hands on the ground (you may need to move your hands further out, or in depending on how good you are).
- Keeping your arms straight, slowly walk your feet up the wall. (At no time should your arms bend and your head go on the ground!)
