Why Do We Handstand ….

At CPMFITness you will see the word “Handstand” written on the “O” board often …

But Why?

Yes they are challenging, fun, and scary all at the same time but how do they help us with our sport of fitness?

Handstands help us achieve a better sense of balance and awareness. What we really achieve is strength in many physical aspects. We develop core strength, shoulder stability and  build strength in the hands and wrists.

Handstands also improve sense of balance and calms the brain which helps relieve stress. Circulation and blood flow also play a big role in the handstand. When you increase blood flow and circulation you increase energy to the brain and invigorates your central nervous system and energizes the body.

I believe the most powerful part of the handstand is facing the “fear” of being upside down. That is the one movement that all of my clients get ecstatic about when they are able to do one on their own. It is such a powerful movement and really opens ones eyes about how strong they truly are and makes them focus on how much more they want to accomplish!

What are some of your favorite things about the handstand CPM’ers?
