Handstands are more than just a showpiece. For thousands of years, athleticism has been demonstrated through feats of bodyweight strength and skill, where individuals who were truly ‘fit’ didn’t just look fit, but also demonstrated mastery over their own bodies in skillfully artistic ways. Even in the golden age of bodybuilding, bodybuilders were known to challenge each other post workout with hand balancing and bodyweight strength contests. And even today, the idea of practicing advanced skills and self-mastery is making its way back into fitness.
