Home Training? Handstands! And Weights, Obviously.

Confined to the house? Well, there’s something you could train to while away the time! I just added 20 more handstands to HANDSTAND CENTRAL GALLERY #1 – and there’s a huge amount of inspiration on that page! Just check out what this little Japanese boy can do…

Balance on knuckles, straddle up, push-ups… wow!

Here’s a couple of tasters from the new handstand additions:

Some new inspirational weights pictures follow:


(Yes, you are a weight!)


I’ve not shown guys using  professional equipment today, since you most likely won’t have that at home.  OK, he’s sitting or standing in front of some, but you know what I mean. And, lastly, once again, don’t forget to make use of your own bodyweight…



About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...

    For your handstand gallery: I watched a documentary on Yul Brynner last night. One of his friends stated that, at the age of sixty, Yul Brynner could still do a one-handed handstand with pushups! I believe it because I saw Yul at the Aerie Crown Theater in Chicago performing the King and I during his final tour. Despite cancer and severe laryngitis, he never performed better. Rock Brynner says he provided his Father’s singing voice. Do you think that you could locate at least a still, if not video, of 60 year old Brynner doing that handstand/pushup?
