What To Wear To Handstand Class?

Learning how to handstand is hard enough without worrying about what your clothing is doing or how it's feeling. 

When I was learning handstands, I found it easier to keep my body tight in tight clothing. Tight clothing = tight body. When I was first trying to find my line, I found that tight clothing helped remind my body to be tight. If I was wearing loose sweatpants I found it much harder to remember to squeeze my butt. 

You want to be able to focus on being upside down rather than your top flipping up over your head. 

Crop Top or Tank Top - Keeps you cool and comfortable during your training.

Long Sleeve Raglan - This top comes in crop length or full length and is a great option for training when you want to keep your arms covered for a little more warmth.

Leotard - Love this Leo! It can be ordered without sleeves or with 3/4 sleeves, it's great for keeping everything in place while also being upside down. 


For Pants I have find that wearing tight fitted pants is best for beginners, it will help your coach be able to see your line and give you feedback. 

High Waist Leggings- These leggings are my go to for training, the Supplex fabrics have great compression and 4 way stretch.

As I became more comfortable upside down and became more advanced I found that I was able to wear a tight top but with looser pants and that it didn't affect my handstand line so much.
