Handstand Walk Progressions
Handstand walking can be a fun and impressive skill to master. Many athletes work for years to develop the skill, and yet still have not mastered it. When you are a novice handstand walker and see that handstand walks are programmed in your workout, it can be frustrating (and sometimes embarrassing) to try to figure out the skill on the fly with time ticking down.

For the busy parent with a career to build
Don’t get me wrong. For the busy parent with a career to build, making it into the gym a few times a week and creating positive lifestyle changes certainly requires some discipline. There needs to be discipline with scheduling, time management, nutrition, forming new habits, and overcoming any internal psychological resistance to make it into the gym for a workout.
“Simply put, self-discipline is your ability to get yourself to do what’s necessary even when you don’t feel like doing it.”Rick Hayes
However, for many competitive athletes, discipline may not take the same form. Take, for example, the aspiring competitor who practically lives at the gym. They train nearly every day for hours at a time because they love to train…NOT because they have to exercise discipline and self-control. Unlike someone who is struggling to make a habit of exercising regularly, there’s little to no internal resistance for the athlete to overcome with regard to showing up in the gym, throwing some weight around, and completing a training session with their friends and coaches.
