Christy Newell handstand observations

| 0 Comments

I love doing handstands. I am not great at doing them and have a strong desire to improve. I decided to monitor myself doing sets of 10 handstands over time to see if I observed any changes. These observations were made about one week apart from each other. In between observations, I continued practicing handstands.

1st observation:
seconds with both feet off the ground
1.7, 1.3, 2.4, 1.8, 3, 2.4, 1.6, 3, 3.3, 2.8
obs 1.tif

2nd observation:
2.5, 1.8, 2, 2, 2.6, 2.5, 1.4, 2.9, 2.6, 2.7
obs 2.tif

3rd observation:
3, 2.5, 1.8, 3.1, 2.4, 2.7, 2.7, 2.5, 2.8, 2.8
obs 3.tif

4th observation:
2.5, 2.8, 2.7, 2.8, 2.5, 2.2, 2.8, 3.5, 2.7, 2.9
obs 4.tif

5th observation:
2.3, 2.3, 2.7, 2.6, 2.6, 3, 2.4, 3, 2.6, 2.6
observation 5.tif

6th observation:
3.2, 2.8, 2, 2.6, 2, 1.9, 2.4, 2.3, 2, 2.8
obs 6.tif

I found that my earlier observations had more variation. As I continued practicing, I improves slightly with time in the air, but the biggest difference was in becoming more predictable.
