A break from the recent flood of philosophy (but I will share my ‘coming-out’ experience about my son shortly)…
What I mean by ‘twenty-a-day’ is not cigarettes (well, would you have expected fitness freaks to be smoking?) but handstands. On days when we don’t spend hours training acrobatics anyway, it is important to keep in practice, using any useful features available to you such as the nice sign above on a UK beach. At least 20 a day in all styles, and preferably a great deal more, since one’s living depends upon keeping it good! So this post is a selection of nice ‘classic’ handstand pictures.
Of course, if you can get into a gym, then so much the better!
We’ll come to the one-hand balances later.
Actually, inspired by re-reading Vol 2 for the final proofing (and selecting some bits to share here shortly) I will offer one little item of philosophy:
‘It’s never too late to be what you might have been’
In other words, if you always fancied trying a bit of balancing and never got around to it, give it a go! You could yet be a star…
