This article from Health magazine suggests that if you are doing a handstand, it might be a good idea to use a hand towel as a counterbalance to keep you from hitting your head on the floor. I don’t know about you, but I would never want to do a handstand in a bathroom in the middle of the day.
Yes, I’m sure that is true. If someone was to suggest that I use a hand towel to counterbalance a handstand, I would probably just laugh. There is nothing amusing about trying to balance yourself while doing a handstand. The only way I would do it is if I had a giant ball of metal on the end of my foot. I think I’m done for the day.
If youre wondering what a handstand looks like, the video below highlights the different types, and the way they look in motion.
You don’t need a ball of metal on your foot for a handstand. Many women use one of these metal balls on their feet to help them counterbalance their weight. That is not the case for me. I use a hand towel.
This is a new technique for balancing you on your side, and it works really well. I do two arm swings and a side swing, then I do a backswing and a step to the side. I can do it with one hand, but not with two, so I use a towel to wrap my two arms around my side, pull my feet back, and just let gravity take over. The towel also doubles as a prop.
It’s weird, because I don’t know how people do this, but I’ve tried it and it works for me. I just put my foot on my heel and swing my feet, one way, the other way. I do the backswing and step, then I do the backswing. It’s really easy to do, and it seems to work well in a crowded room where I can be noticed.
It is also a good way to do a press-up. The towel also doubles as a prop.
You can do a press-up with just your feet, but its a little awkward since you need to make sure your feet are set in the same position. The towel also doubles as a prop.
You can also do a press-up with just your hands and the towel. The towels also double as a prop.
The best part about this exercise, besides its good for your arms, is that you can do it with any number of people. I have an exercise in my gym with me where I perform a press-up with 6 people wearing towels. I got a standing press-up with a 5-person group and it was a lot of fun.
