The first part of the video from GMB covers how to get out of bent arm stand, but for purpose of this post we’ll focus on the second part which teaches us how to bail out from a handstand on parallettes. The technique used for both is pretty similar anyway – a cartwheel, but with a twist.
Instead of going up and over, this technique relies on:
- Pushing, twisting and going out at an angle
- Keeping your arms straight
- Gradual practice of kicking up and going over
For this and other exercises which can be done with or without parallettes, make sure to check out Gold Medal Bodies Parallettes Training program.
