The Handstandcast will air every week, alternating full length, vaguely themed episodes with so called minisodes where we answer all of your questions. Topics we'll cover over the first season include the straight handstand, the mindset of handbalancing and coaching handstands, though to be honest we're making it up as we go along, so who knows where it might go!  Emmet and Mikael get together for the first ever episode of the Handstandcast. They discuss the definition of what even is a handstand, explore the different contexts in which handstands are utilised, and how this affects the form, aesthetics, and training approach.  And a whole lot else!  If you have any questions, episodes ideas or think we should host any special guests, don’t hesitate to send us a message via handstandfactory.com/podcast-question or via Instagram A transcript of this episode along with all references can also be found on handstandfactory.com/podcast This podcast is funded by the sale of our Handstand Factory programs, check them out on handstandfactory.com/programs Love the podcast?
