Easy Steps to Walk on your Hands (Hindi) (1080p HD)

Watch out easy to do hand walking on your hands by Amit Kaushik. (Physical Trainer, Uklana) (Voice : Hindi)

Hand walking is an unusual form of human locomotion in which a person travels in a vertically inverted orientation with all body weight resting on the hands. 

When walking on the hands, you do not have to rely on your hands or arms so much for balance as you can just ‘fall’ in a direction and catch yourself with a step of the hands. 

Walking on your hands is the logical next move after you have learned to do a handstand. 

It certainly demonstrates ones strength, flexibility and agility. This activity is often seen in acrobatics, gymnastics and the circus.

While hand walking, you need to maintain control while you walk and not rely on catching yourself from falling out of balance.

Because the body is inverted during hand walking, blood pressure in the brain is greater than normal.

You have to choose a roomy location with a soft, flat surface. A park, garden, or gym mat would work well for this exercise. Be sure to allow yourself enough space to perform the move; you need more room than you would for a simple handstand. It can help to have a sturdy wall nearby you can practice walking next to.

This skill requires great strength of the hands, forearms and upper body.

Before you start walking on your hands, you need to learn how to balance in place and gain control over your movements. Keep practicing your handstand until you are able to easily move into position 

Easy Steps for Hand Walking
  • First practice by doing push ups in various positions including in a handstand.
  • Practice the handstand against the wall - get confident and also build up your strength.
  • Hold Position : Keep your legs straight up and balance yourself. Hold your legs together for balance and steadiness. Once you’re feeling comfortable, allow your spotter to let go.
  • Then try your hand walking. You may need to practice your balance but walking on your hands actually helps with the balance.
  • Roll out when you are finished : Bend your legs back down from the waist and plant your feet on the ground. 
  • As you start moving around, you will need to constantly adjust your legs and torso to stay balanced. If you start to tip back in the direction of your stomach, move your legs more over your head.
  • The goal is to find your sweet spot, which means to center your body's weight as directly over your hands as possible. 
  • Try to keep your hands directly under your feet at all times. When trying to walk forwards, tilt your body forwards slightly and then move your hands to be underneath your body, and repeat.
Walking is one of the simplest, cheapest and safest forms of exercise, offering a number of important health gains. The beneficial effect of walking can be improved if we do walking on your hands (or hand standing) for few minutes. 

Benefits of Hand Walking
  • It will help to improve muscular strength and endurance of the both the upper and lower body.
  • During hand walking, you are able to strengthen the muscles in your arms and tone your legs
  • While walking on hands can increase energy expenditure and improve our circulatory systems. This increased energy expenditure can help you burn more calories.
Interesting Record : Johann Hurlinger was an Austrian man who walked on his hands from Paris toVienna in 1900. Hurlinger walked on his hands 10 hours a day for 55 days. He averaged 1.58 miles per hour and traversed 870 miles.

4 Tips for Beginners | Roller-Skate

If you've never roller skated before, the biggest thing that you need to worry is balance. You would think balance is pretty easy, but when you put wheels on your feet, it's not so much. So the first thing when you put your skates on it's the T position. So when you have the T position together, it's one heel into the instep of the other skate. The purpose of doing this is so that your feet are underneath you, knees bent, your core is engaged, and that way your skates won't roll out from underneath you while you're standing there. So if you're on a hill, talking to a friend, looking at the cute guys or girls walking by, this is a great way to just stand there without having to worry about your feet moving out from underneath you.

The next thing is forward skating, is with your toes out, and rolling straight is toes straight ahead, forwards or backwards, and backwards skating is toes in. So it's kind of like a car, when your toes are out you're in drive, when your toes are straight, neutral, toes together, reverse. So if you start going backwards, just have a quick little glance down, your toes are probably pointing together, so stop, T-position, get your balance back underneath you, knees bent, and start again. We always start off with walking first because it's kind of difficult just to put skates on and roll, so toes out, knees bent, and walk like a duck. Small steps forward until you get your balance, and then once you have your balance you'll be able to push to the side and let your wheels roll.

So those are a couple of tips for you beginners out there.

How To Learn Swimming

How to learn Swimming easily (English)

Easy Tips for Swimming ~ Ballay Beri (Hindi) (720p HD)

Swimming can look frightening. All of you have to do is get comfortable in the water, learn those beginning strokes, and then move on to more advanced techniques when you're ready. 

You first of all have to learn to not be afraid of water. People who fear the water, their hearts since the freeze. The best way to overcome is to expose your face in the water more often. 

Learning to deal with getting your face wet and building up to partial and total submersion and holding your breath is the next step. 

The second step is to learn how to relax your body. Our body is made out of water most, that it floats logically it should be very easy. 

Main Tips from Ballay Beri (Swimming Coach) : 
  • Let go of Your Fear : A lot of people put off learning how to swim because they are afraid of drowning. 
  • Get used to Floating : When you are in the water, hold on to the side of the pool or a dock and let your legs float out behind you. They should lift easily if you let them. Practice doing this on your stomach and on your back, until you are comfortable letting half of your body float. 
  • Get Comfortable in the Water : The second step toward talented swimming is to be comfortable in the water. Practice treading water for gradually longer periods of time. Practice holding your head under water and opening your eyes. Practice floating on your back and on your stomach.
  • The Crawl Stroke : The front crawl consists of alternating strokes with your arms while maintaining a kick. Draw one arm up from your side through the air, break the surface with your hand and pull the water back down to your side. When your backward pull begins, your other arm should exit the water at your side and begin its way forward. Allow your body to rotate slightly back and forth with the alternating momentum of your strokes. 
  • Practice Exhaling Underwater : While you are still in a shallow depth, take a deep breath and put your face underwater. Slowly exhale out your nose until you are out of breath, then come back up. If you are uncomfortable exhaling through your nose, you can hold it closed or wear a nose plug and exhale through your mouth. 
  • Practice kicking Your Legs : Whether you are floating on your back or still holding on to the side of the pool, you can practice kicking. This allows you to focus on your kicking technique without worrying about keeping your head above water. 
  • Try a Flutter Kick : Point your toes out like a ballerina, keep your legs mostly straight, and alternate legs as you make small kicks. You should feel the most flexion in your ankles. 
  • Try an Eggbeater Kick : This kick is used to tread water and stay in a vertical position with your head and shoulders above water. Start with your knees bent and your legs slightly wider than hip-width apart. Then pedal each leg as you would on a bike, only they will go in opposite directions: while one leg pedals forward, the other leg should pedal backward. 
  • Breathing : To breathe while swimming the crawl, tilt your head sideways on the side where your arm is just leaving the water. The natural tilt of your body at this point in the stroke means you will only have to tilt your head a little bit to get your mouth above water. Do not raise your head and face out of the water to breathe. Breathe in through your mouth and exhale through your nose or mouth and nose underwater. 
There are 4 main strokes for swimming :
  • Freestyle 
  • Breaststroke 
  • Backstroke 
  • Butterfly 
Try some more advanced strokes. Once you are more comfortable in the water, you can start learning new strokes that will move you more quickly or with less energy. They are as follow : 
  • Dolphin Stroke 
  • Butterfly Stroke 
  • Breaststroke 
  • Sidestroke 

Try Diving : Dives can be a fun way to get into the water and start a stroke. Start with a basic dive and move on to more complicated swan dive, back dive, and rolling dive. 

Health Benefit of Swimming : 

A relaxing form of exercise means weight lost by swimming is fun too.
  • Swimming is very effective at reducing blood pressure and improving vascular function. 
  • Swimming helps lose weight, burn calories and puts little stress on your body. Swimming works all the major muscles, and will tone you up and slim you down. 
  • As swimming uses so many muscles in your body, your heart and lungs must work hard to supply them all with oxygen and it improve breathing capacity of our lungs. 
  • Your resting heart rate will decrease and blood pressure will lower. 
  • Regular swimming when losing weight will improve your health and may reduce the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, Diabetes type 2 and stroke. 
  • Swimming provides constant resistance exercise as you are battling against the water to propel your body forward. This makes it excellent for increasing strength especially in the upper body. 
  • Swimming is also an activity that can aid people of any age with their asthma.
