Following on from yesterday's post directing you to the Gymnastic Bodies website, why not try some handstand progressions?

"I have yet to meet someone who did not at least claim to aspire for success on some level. However most people drastically underestimate the cost of that success. Very few are actually willing to invest the sweat, blood and sacrifice necessary to make those pleasant daydreams a reality. Essentially they would love to be successful; as long as it is not too inconvenient, or too boring or too painful.

This is why there is always room at the top for those who are willing to pay the price. In my experience, I have found the following to be true: first you think like a champion, then you train like a champion and finally you compete like a champion, proving to everyone else what you have already known for some time; that you have the heart of a champion."

Christopher Sommer, USA Gymnastics Junior National Team Coach.
