Headstand is all about core stability and forearm support (to keep weight off your neck!!). These exercises help you work on pushing the floor away with your forearms, hamstring lengthening to make the lift off the ground easier, and low belly strength to support the leg lift!
Video 1: forearm plank knee taps!! With these the key is to move as slow as possible while keeping your torso completely still. As you move, keep pressing your forearms into the mat and pulling your shoulder blades around and down.
Video 2: leg lifts! Keep your low back pressed into the mat at. All. Times. If you need to press your palms under your hips take that option! Only lower your leg as far down as you can while keeping your low back pressed into the mat.
Video 3: I think these are called suitcases? These really work your low belly! Same thing here, keep your low back firmly rooted into your mat!
