What happens after taping 20 different videos of inversions and arm balances on the forearms? They peel and start to get bloody so, bandaids and extra protection are needed, hence the arm warmers… 😜 As with yesterday’s pose, you can use the sofa differently depending on what your main issues are: most people kick against it so, if they go over, the land will be smooth. After practicing up against the wall, the sofa should be your next stage, but make sure you can balance for a few seconds or else you’re going to be kicking and flipping over, time after time… better to use the wall until the kick is solid enough. If you turn 90 and practice perpendicular to the sofa, you can climb one leg on it, extend the other one like you were doing Transversal #Splits,
then press up without (barely) any jump. This is a strengthening exercise and it requires better balancing skills too so, do it only when you start to feel very comfortable in this ‘asymmetrical’ #inversion.
Another thing to try is to transition from regular #Pincha
into this version, lifting one forearm and planting its palm down, then return back to Pincha to do the other side…. lots of fun assured to master this kind of balancing! Do the regular version if you prefer, modify as needed and keep going, #keeppracticing!!!
