The ARC Handstand Programme is written for Athletes who are looking to master all the basic concepts of an efficient Handstand… from scratch!
The reason we say “from scratch”, is because it ensures that the important concepts are developed in an order that allows for fast progression.
The programme is designed as an entry point for beginners, and for Intermediates that need to fill in the gaps of their understanding.
The aim of ARC – Handstand is to coach trainees to achieving a consistent 10s Handstand from various entries by the end of the 10 week programme.
Athlete's subscribing to this programme will:
Unless you already have a 20-30s Handstand with an efficient, straight hollow line, you are
not too advanced for this Programme.
Before starting this programme, we recommend that you have the strength to kick up to a Wall Supported Handstand. Your shape and efficiency does not matter, we just want you to demonstrate you have enough strength to do it.
If you don’t yet have the strength to kick up to the wall, we strongly recommend that you subscribe to the ARC Gymnastics – Level 1A strength programme.
This programme is specifically designed to get you the strength and technical awareness you will need to take on this programme.
ARC - Handstand is a 10 week training programme.
There are 4 training sessions per week, each lasting 20-30 minutes.
Weeks 1-2 are an introduction, to develop the necessary conditioning in the shoulder + wrist joints. This conditioning is needed to:
- Avoid the onset of inflammation from sudden increase in wrist pressure.
- Reduce risk of injury from increased volume on the shoulders.
- Practice + learn positional concepts & tension cues.
- Increase productivity of balance training.
- Develop work capacity for high frequency practice.
Weeks 3-10 are designed to progressively build your alignment, strength & shape. You’ll carefully master the balance progressions in order, and by week 8 you will be consistently balancing each session from various entries.
ARC – Handstand can be incorporated alongside your main training programme.
You can also combine ARC – Handstand with one of the following ARC Programmes:
- ARC - Ring Muscle-Up
- ARC – Bar Muscle-Up
- ARC – Toes-to-Bar
- ARC – Pull-Up
We do not recommend combining more than 3 ARC skill programmes. If you wanted to do this, we instead recommend you subscribe to the main ARC Gymnastics Comprehensive Programme. This will systematically progress your abilities in a much more efficient manner.
