This is the second celebration of handstands in all forms on this site – for a start there is HANDSTAND CENTRAL GALLERY #1 which will repay a visit… – and also many other handstands in old blog posts and on other fitness and gymnastic/acrobatic pages here. I open this second page with two items from previous ones which illustrate what we love – a video of a real fun idea from two talented acrobatic gymnasts from the UK, and perhaps the largest ever collection of one-arm handstands assembled in one place!
Here you will find all forms of hand balance (good and occasionally bad ones!) including planches- anything where the performer has his weight balanced on one or two hands. I hope that you will enjoy it.
New items will appear immediately below, with the ones added earlier found further down.
