The 15-Second Handstand: A Beginners Guide is the ANSWER to the questions we all really have about the handstand.
It is the ONLY book on the market to address the big handstand problem: fear.
When learning to handstand, you are normally dealing with a fear of falling over; and The 15-Second handstand lays out a progression that conquers fear, builds strength and ENABLES you to HIT YOUR GOAL in record time. Just look at what others are saying about it…
“I basically couldn’t put the book down. It really tremendous. I get the feeling that you REALLY know what you’re talking about. It’s really neat the way you present the 6 Challenges right away, then leave all the WHY for later. Plus, you really clarified for me what I need to pay attention to: locked elbows and active shoulders. And getting past my fear by learning to bail. The rest is gravy for going from 15s to one minute. I never had this feeling before of knowing what to do.” – Dan R.
“I found the book very clear and simple, never boring. It is perfect for people who want to know why and how something works, but the step-by-step progression is perfect for people who don’t care about the details.” – Giacomo B.
“I finished your book in one day!! I like it, it’s very helpful for me and the progression is very good!! I changed my training following your progression and trained much more face to the wall, every day the ‘holy’ five minutes. I trained 4 months before, but had fear to move to freestanding, without any wall.” – Jürgen F.
“As a kid I remember my father standing on his hands and walking up and then down a flight of stairs on his hands. At 67 years old I doubt I will ever be able to duplicate that feat, but thanks to Chris Salvato’s systematic approach I’m now able to stand [freestanding] on my hands for a few seconds (and get off my hands without destroying myself and nearby furniture) a feat that has eluded me for years. Using his program I’m looking forward to extending that time into minutes.” – Marshall P.
“Chris Salvato did a really good job with The 15-Second Handstand book. You can start your way into the progressions within 10 minutes of reading, and learn the why and how later through the book. The finer points of technique are spot on and prevent bad habits from developing (bent arms, sagging shoulders). Also, the pirouette progression makes you understand the act of bailing, and saves you from having to rollout, which may be troublesome depending on the kind of surface you are training in. This book is definitely going to help in building a handstand addiction.” – Lucas S.
“This is the third or fourth handstand book I bought, and the first one I have liked. The other ones were complete garbage. This one stands out by having a straightforward progression towards a clearly defined final goal, and no detours. There are clear, realistic targets for every step. I love how everything is sliced into small, doable pieces, such as your advice on adding the four form cues one at a time. Best of all I liked that there’s a step in the progression dedicated to bailing. I’m actually starting to lose my fear of falling now.”– Barry L.
“I have not read any other books about the handstand. This book is very easy to follow. It is also very detailed about what to do, and what not to do. It convinces me that it is possible for me to learn it.” – Anders I.
