Upper Body Strength Training

Handstands against the wall are great for building core and upper body strenght which you can transfer to the pole.

Unlike the seen the video, you want to work towards keeping your hands shoulder width apart, this may be challenging to a beginner, but its something to keep in mind and work towards.  If you find that it’s difficult in the beginning the keep the fingers pointed toward the wall try rotating your hands slightly outward.  Eventually you want to try to balance with out the wall (if even for a few moments).  Even if you can only hold your handstand with out the wall for a short amount of time keep trying and you will see improvement with consistency.
