Handspring Crash Course
take time... LOTS and lots of time. The more hours each WEEK that you
apply to learning the skill, the more quickly you'll achieve it safely.
Most likely your elbow trouble is associated with your growth pattern...
which is to say, you'll probably grow out of it. In the mean-time I recommend
that you begin building more strength in the muscles of your upper arms.
That means... do LOTS of handstand push-ups. like 12 at a time
My 'Better Back-Handsprings' video also has many exercises
to help you achieve your handspring more quickly. Grab a parent and surf
over to my web site together to learn more about it and share your dreams.
