Handstand one-arm conditioning 

This is a circuit of exercises that I have been drilling recently.

I like to pick a small number of moves and spend an entire training session only working on those. I often pick two or three things and spend 2 hours drilling them. We can’t master everything at once. The ability to choose something and just work on that is a sign of patience.

There is no end to the number of exercises we could be doing, and if your mind is always preocupied with everything you’re not practising, you’ll find it hard to focus on practising anything at all.

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” – Bruce Lee

We can always get better advise, guidance & exercises from new teachers, but dedication, focus, patience, persistence, commitment, consistency, routine, ritual, are going to be the governing factors that make the biggest difference in the long run.

I have not mastered the one-arm handstand yet, but this videos gives you a glimpse of my current training approach and attitude.
