The Handstand Walk Challenge


Plain and simple… get better walking on your hands. This is something you can practice daily and it will yield huge results in your overhead stability and core strength. Plus, it is a fun skill to show off at party’s!

How’s it work?

Day 1: Walk 10ft on your hands or double the distance in seal walk using the sliders. You can also count a 10 foot walk along the wall as a walk for the day. All feet count as reps, but you only get the reps to count if you complete all feet for the day. You can join at any time and accumulate time on your feet. Ask your coaches for scaling suggestions if you want to learn how to walk on your hands!

Each day we will be adding 10ft to the walk. So Day 2 will be 20ft and so on until Jan 31. This means in order for your Handstand walk to count on Day 31 you will need to walk 310ft on your hands!.
