Frequently Asked Questions about the Handstands Course
I’ve never even tried handstands before. Can beginners take this course?
Yes, this course is also for beginners. You don’t need to have any previous experience.
I’m not sure I have time for this course because I’m training for other sports/activities too.
Workouts in this course will only take you about 15–20 minutes each time, so you can easily add them to your regular workouts or sports-specific training.
Are there any exercises or skills I have to be able to do in order to take this course?
You should have a reasonable level of strength already, i.e. be able to hold a plank for at least 30 seconds and hold yourself upside down against a wall for a couple of seconds. If you’re not there yet, don’t worry! You can build up some strength with HIIT workouts then do the course when you’re ready.
How long is the Beginner Handstands course?
The course is divided into four modules that you can complete at your own pace. Once you’ve completed the module you’re currently on, you can move on to the next one. The length of the course depends on what your current fitness level is and how fast you progress.
What if I fall on my head?
This is a fear a lot of people have but it’s extremely unlikely to ever happen! We build up the strength slowly in the course and use a wall to practice at first to guarantee you have enough support to start out. When you do start practicing freestanding handstands, you can either step or cartwheel out from your handstand.
How long does will it take me to be able to do a freestanding handstand?
There’s no easy answer to that question. It depends where you are when you’re starting out and how often you practice. But we’re sure that with a lot of hard work, everyone will be able to do a freestanding handstand in time.
