Build & Balance Full Body Workout with Handstands

Handstand Workout

 

Hello my Lovies,

So, just like you guys suggested on my LovingFit Facebook Page , this workout is going to be Full Body with incorporation of handstands. This workout is definitely at a more challenging level, thats why I will not recommend beginners to do it. Beginners should start with my earlier full body workouts, and then work your way up to something like this. In order to do this workout as intended, you should be able to at least do a full 2 minute handstand agains a wall, because here I will be incorporating Hand Switch Handstands and One Arm Handstands.

 

For Newbies ( Beginners to Loving Fit )

 

If you are new to Loving Fit I recommend to check out ” Creating Your Workout Plan ” post. There you will be able to see how I put together my routines, and you can find something for your own fitness level. My philosophy is: Form is always more important than speed, so WATCH YOUR FORM!
Another thing that I really recommend all of my beginners to check out, is my post review called on What Is The Beta Switch. I think this plan is quite amazingly put together for someone who is just starting out and need a lot of guidance. I’m not a beginner and I found so much useful info learning from Beta Switch Program.

For Complete Beginners I really suggest to check out my review-post about The Beta Switch. This is an amazing program for complete beginners with tips and guidance not only about working out, but also nutrition and keeping your mind on track.

 

Workout Explanation

 

For this routine I was using a 40 lbs Sandbag, and a timer. You will also need a wall for your handstand exercises.
This workout is broken down to 2 parts. First part consists of 7 exercises which are done using intervals. And 2 exercises which you will do after each interval round.

This is how the workout will go:

 

Part 1

Set your timer for 2 intervals, 20/1:00 ( 20 sec is rest interval, 1 minute is maximum effort interval. For the total of 8 Rounds. There are 7 exercises ( one of them is per side ).

• 2 Slide Under Side Lunges & Body Twist
• Pulse Walking Lunge with Sandbag Lift – Right Side
• Pulse Walking Lunge with Sandbag Lift – Left Side
• 2 Leaning Push-ups & Push-Back Push-up Combo
• 6 Wall Climbers & Handstand Side Step
• Low Squat to Diagonal Back-Lunge ( Stay Semi-Low the whole time )
• Staggered Dive Bombers
• Hand Switch Handstand

After you complete the first interval round of, it will be followed by 2 exercises of recovery so to speak, but not exactly.

• Back Lunge Jump Tuck – 25 reps per side

• Tapping Push-ups – 10 reps

Now you will reverse the order of the interval part, and start the second round from the bottom up. Third round again from the top to bottom. And fourth round ( if you decide to do the 4th round ) you will again start from bottom up.

You can do 3-4 rounds, it’s up to you.

 

Part 2

At the end of each upper body workout, I always do One Arm Handstands as a finisher, using intervals.

Set your timer for 2 intervals, 5 sec / 10 sec, total of 10 rounds. For the 5 second interval, you will be standing on both hand in a Handstand. On 10 sec interval you will be balancing on one hand only ( in a handstand ), 5 round per each hand.

Enjoy Your Workout!

    Thank you so much for this wonderful work out. I think I have to pass twists and lifts and just do the leg work – my lower body can handle much more weight than my upper body, and also, I do want to have some strength left until it´s time to do the wall work (which is still my enemy, but I am so much better with it). =D I will try (my version of) this w/o probably next week.

    I´m wondering where is everybody nowadays. Here used to be a lot of discussion before. Maybe there is some kind of super fancy new social media thingy I haven´t even heard about. =D Though I´m fine of being this very “old fashioned” girl. =D

    Have a great week, Tatianna!

    Tati, this workout is so much fun. Thank you for incorporating handstands! This is one I will be coming back to again and again, I think. I’m already excited for the next workout you’ve announced. One thing I love about your workouts is that you give me something to aspire to. I am not as strong as you yet, but I’m working on it.

    Did this one yesterday – first one back after about 5 days off – this was hard! I had to modify some of the exercises – and didn’t do the finisher – think i would have fallen on my face! LOL

    Great workout- will be doing this one again – thank you so much
