On weight lifting days I try to incorporate free weights, machines and body-weight exercises. One of the coolest shoulder and upper-body exercises that Kit showed me ten years ago is the handstands against a wall. We did these at Spiece in the Sport Performance area.  The first time it took her five minutes of encouragement to get me to try one.  After that I got better I tried handstand pushups and then walks like she did.

About three or four years ago I got lazy and I stopped doing them at Spiece.   Maybe my shoulders hurt or wrists – I don’t remember.  Now that I’m a Catalyst Fitness member I’ve tried a few times to do them and failed.  I’ll keep trying and I’ll get them maybe this week.
