Handstand Progression Challenge Outcomes #EvenBetter

What an awesome {and challenging!} journey it’s been practicing handstands daily. Although it’s only been 2 weeks, I’m amazed at how well my body has responded to consistent practice. From barely being able to gather the arm strength to do a wall-assisted handstand, to holding the wall-assisted posture for longer than a minute – so exciting! It also seems the exercises I committed to doing have been building all of the unworked muscles in my arms and shoulders, as they’ve become much more toned and able to support me, especially my deltoids. Not to mention working on finger planks, I had no idea I could even develop that kind of strength.

In all, through practicing several sets of Wall-Assisted Handstands, L-Shaped Handstands, Hollow Body Holds, and Finger Planks (as well as a few more in between!), I’m so happy with my personal progress. I can see a consistent progression both in my ability to hold postures and the supportive muscular development that’s happened in the process. Now my ultimate goal would be to get into a handstand using completely my own strength, but I know that’s a longer journey. However, now that I’ve gone through this 2-week challenge, I feel really amazing and so much more inspired to get there. It’s truly incredible what the body is capable of!

During this 2-week journey, I’ve also been enjoying the Ocean Spray® PACt® Cranberry Extract Water, and WOW, is it ever amazing! I’m very picky when it comes to the food and beverages I consume, as I’m what you’d call a ‘health nut’. When I read the label, though, I was pleasantly intrigued; this is such a clean and delicious product with actual health benefits! Then I tasted it…and I became hooked. I’ve thoroughly been enjoying all three flavours (Cranberry Pomegranate, Cranberry Raspberry, and Cranberry Mango Passionfruit – I doubt that I can choose a favourite) and feel like I’ve reaped major benefits from its potent cranberry extract (the power of 50 cranberries, to be exact). On any journey to wellness, I believe it’s so important to stay hydrated and have a diet high in antioxidants. This water provided both and definitely gave me a much-needed boost throughout this challenge. SO yes, I feel #evenBetter!!

If you’ve yet to try this awesome purified water with a deliciously natural kick, I urge you to check it out!
