55+ Handstand Challenge

 

How Long Can You Hold a Handstand For?

The Active Aging Handstand Challenge is designed for people ages 55+.  The challenge is how long you can hold a handstand for. 

Sam Abraham is a yoga instructor who performs the challenge. In the first part of the video, Sam holds a perfect handstand for 25 seconds.  In the second part of the video, Sam gives instructions on how to safely get into the handstand position.

Timing Your Handstand and Testing Your Form

The best way to time how long you can hold a handstand is by filming yourself with your phone.  This is also the best method to evaluate your form.  When filming yourself, you can see your strengths and weaknesses when getting in and out of the position.  If you don’t have a smartphone, use some other timer, or even count aloud. 

Inspire Others By Posting Your Handstand Video in our Facebook Group.

The concept behind the Active Aging 55+ Handstand Challenges is to push yourself to new limits and grow.  Help inspire and motivate others by sharing your handstand video in our Facebook Group.  Here are more challenges for active aging adults.

We watch every video here at Active Aging, so when you post your video in our Facebook Group, you have the opportunity to get on our Record Holder list by Age Group.  Record holders are listed below.
