L POSE HANDSTAND TRAINING
We’re all aware about the importance of taking baby steps when we have a bigger goal we’d like to achieve. L Pose Handstand Training falls under that very category when it comes to taking steps towards Handstand. Matt refers to L Pose as the “first entrance to handstand.” Before you take flight, practicing L Pose in different planes is one of the best ways to really prepare and understand the biomechanics involved in the posture. Practicing L Pose on your back provides a more controlled opportunity to learn how to really engage the hip flexors and core muscles.

THE MYTH OF THE CORE
Core strength might be the first thing you believe you need to develop while preparing for handstand. There’s no doubt that this is a necessary part of the equation, but if you’ve conquered the action of the “push” in the shoulders (shoulders up towards your ears), Matt explains that the use of the core is a refinement only when the shoulders are out of alignment. If this is the case, you’ll have to utilize your core a lot more to keep your back straight and possibly pull the legs from behind you.

CORE MUSCLES & HIP FLEXOR ACTIVATION
What is the core? The core muscles are a great deal more than the superficial muscles of the rectus abdominis. When it comes to handstand, a large part of the focus are the deeper core muscles (the psoas major and the iliacus, also referred to as the iliopsoas). These muscles are a key component when it comes to stabilizing the pelvis and thighs in a handstand. With L Pose as the first entrance to handstand, an awareness of the importance of the activation of the hip flexors is paramount.
