An efficient handstand kick-up requires that your keep both knees full extended on the ascent. A bent knee on either leg usually leads to an over extension fault at the torso and a loss of balance. Handstands are an awkward and unfamiliar movement for many in the beginning, keeping the knees straight decreases the number of variables in the system and makes getting upside down much easier. Practice tuning into what your legs are doing with heel taps against the wall and halvsie kick-ups on the open floor.

Graphic Designer Wanted
Glorietta Baldy, a new bar at 502 Franklin Avenue in bedstuy, is looking for some local (hopefully not killer pricey) graphic designer help for their small food menu. They pay in both cash and in alcohol. The owner learned how to play with barbells at Crossfit South Brooklyn back before it was cool so there’s that. Anyone with the bona fides feel free to email them at ben at bargreatharry dot com.
