Handstand practice today!  Remember, this is one of our tests for the EIE Challenge and and event at the PCF World Championships.  If you want to improve your handstand you need to have strong and flexible shoulders, a strong midline and most importantly you have to practice and get comfortable upside down!  Keep working hard and you will improve!
