Can headstand practice help my running? Some say yes. Others are more skeptical.
Benefits of headstands:
- improves core strength,
- works on balance,
- improves mental focus,
- more oxygen in the brain for brief periods (better decision making?)
- see the world from a different vantage point
I would think that headstands as cross-training is a bit of a stretch but I’m sure there must be real benefits because holding good headstands is hard. Anything that is hard must be beneficial, right?
Either way, I’m looking forward to a headstand photo on a mountain peak.
