Trying to do things fast, that, you haven’t mastered slowly.
The other day I was watching my sons workout while he was doing handstands.
His goal in the handstand is to be able to perform – push-ups – and stand on one arm.
He used the momentum to get upside down.
I couldn’t help it and approached it like horse training -balance slow and steady will give you better results in a long time.
The brutal force will get you only so far.
Amazing to watch when he changed his focus onto balance, stability& elasticity in the movement. He looked more comfortable.
I was nudging him to make the session short and slowly- quit while he was ahead, rather than holding it and working with shaking arms.
So similar to riding it is not just how you enter the movement; it is also how you exit the movement.
A controlled entry of the handstand and a controlled exit. Rather than collapse- Crash 😜
His balanced improved his body worked more evenly –
Of course, I couldn’t help writing about it – it is like horse training explaining the concept—one step at the time.
Incredible to watch his or the horse’s confidence grow, when their posture improves.
