The point of this program is twofold. First, we want to break apart the notion of the handstand as only a static discipline with one precise path to specific technical goals. In this sense the title is literal: expand your abilities on your hands beyond only standard shapes such as straight, straddle, diamond and tuck. This will add a lot of variation to your handstand vocabulary, which is good both to enjoy the training itself and to add challenge and creativity.
Second, we want to highlight how much these additional abilities on your hands contribute towards the more complex skills later on. There is a classic notion that gymnasts tend to learn handbalancing faster than others, which is largely true. This is not only because they might have good handstand basics but also because they have great proprioception and awareness of their bodies upside down in many contexts. The same often goes for break dancers and acrobats in other disciplines. In Expand we want to give you access to this piece of the puzzle. By further developing your freedom on your hands, you will no longer be confined to only staying in one place on the floor, and you can enjoy much more of the upside-down experience.
