No matter at which level you are with handstands, the warm-up is the most important part of your handstand practice. The warm-up is a time that can be used to gain numerous training adaptations in many aspects of physical conditioning. These benefits can include improved strength, flexibility, range of motion, force and velocity of movement and muscular endurance, coordination, and the correction of major and minor muscle imbalances. The concept of systematically and gradually increasing the intensity and volume of the loads.

In this article, I will show you a short warm-up sequence  I do every single time of my handstand practice. Make this routine your habit, you don’t even think about it. Just like brushing teeth, do this warm-up before your training. The main goal is that you can repeatedly do it without thinking about the warm-up part to enjoy your healthy handstand journey without any pain or injuries.
