🔥Wrist Mobility For Handstands🔥
So many people want to perform the sexy moves such as handstands and Olympic lifts. They do not realize that they need to put in the work to build a solid foundation in each joint. In this specific post we are covering the wrist as the wrist is very important for handstands. If you do not have adequate wrist extension mobility then your body will compensate to complete the movement and you will end up with pain and poor movement patterns in the long run.
You need a minimum of 90 degrees of wrist extension to perform a handstand. This is the minimum, but we always recomend having a buffer of extra motion so I would say 100 degrees is preferred. It is also important to make sure you have both passive and active mobility in the joint.
To perform, follow the picture and make sure your forearm remains parallel to the ground.
I know my handstand is not that great, but this post is to talk about the required wrist mobility to perform a handstand and not the quality of my handstand.

The world is not black and white.
There isn’t always a right or wrong answer.
You may not want to make a decision but you have to.
You may not want to ask for help but you need it.
You may feel alone when standing in a crowd.
It may not make sense when you try to understand.
It’s not always black and white.
But this picture is.
Up until 1 year ago I thought the best version of myself was the smallest version of myself & I’m willing to bet *most* women feel this way as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“If I could just lose 30 lbs I would be genuinely happy”
“If I weighed 120 pounds I would love my body”
PLOT TWIST: you will ALWAYS have something about yourself you want to change. If it’s not the stomach rolls, it’ll be the stretch marks on your bum. If it’s not your jiggly thighs, it’ll be excess fat elsewhere. That is just how us humans are wired 🤷🏻♀️and all we can do is our absolute best to love ourselves and our bodies at every stage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Everyday is a chance to make healthier choices. Be kind to yourself and your body. If you’re unhappy with your current health, don’t feel hopeless, be overjoyed that you have the ability to change it ♡

Do you snooze your alarm? ⏰
Something I’ll never stop doing is this MAGICAL Morning Routine of mine👇🏼
👉🏼 It’s so easy to want to hit that snooze button in the morning, especially when we have 500 things to get done in a day!
👉🏼 But let me tell you something, hitting snooze automatically puts us at lower energy. Not wanting to get up for the day is exactly what we tell the world when we hit that snooze button. 💤
👉🏼 Our brains have about 5 seconds to do something before our subconscious talks us out of doing it. AKA our brains have about 5 seconds in the morning to just get up before hitting snooze and turning the other way. 🏃🏻♀️
👉🏼 The purpose of my morning routine and not hitting snooze is to wake up ready to take on the world, excited to be alive, slow my thoughts down, become present in the moment, thank God for another beautiful day of life, and get at the highest frequency of energy that I can get too.
✨The Magical & Life Changing Morning Routine👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
1️⃣ I wake up without hitting snooze! 💤
2️⃣ I fill up my water bottle and start chugging. 💦
3️⃣ Affirmations! I either write them out and say them out loud! ⭐️
4️⃣ I write down my goals for the day and what I’m grateful for 🙏
5️⃣ I read a chapter in whatever book I am currently reading! (During the semester, I do not always do this) 📚
6️⃣ Lastly, I open up my phone! Check texts, emails, and scroll through IG! 📱
Who’s going to wake up without hitting snooze tomorrow?!
