Once again a huge thank you to @matthewismith for making that road to handstand a lot clearer. Without your guidance I’d still be lost with the move.

Handstand Toolkit Review

Enter Handstand Toolkit by movement coach matthewismith. I really like how this class doesn’t shove you into a precast mold. The easy self assessment helped me create a path for improvement and daily small wins.

Handstand Toolkit Review

Started off with no freestanding handstand and no real feeling of control. Day 8 and i got a 15s split leg balance :) Thanks to matthewismith for the expert guidance. The amount of care and knowledge that’s gone into the handstand toolkit is exceptional. Im excited to continue.
