Quick Press to Handstand Tutorial

Here’s a really short but effective tutorial on how to perform a press handstand.

Firstly, you’ll want to get in a plank position and pull your butt all the way up in to the air while keeping your hands in one place. To do this, you’ll have to lean forward , use your shoulders and suck your abs in. After you master this move, put a raised surface (mats work the best) behind you and press your feet onto the raised surface. Repeat the process to get off the mats, back to the floor.

Now you’re ready to press from a raised surface to a handstand against the wall and essentially end up in a supported handstand before coming back into the raised surface. After you feel confident enough, add more mats to raise the surface behind you. If you can make it at least 6 inches high, you’ll be very close to performing a press. Try to come down as slow as possible to build strength and improve balance. Also don’t forget to use your finger tips to keep in balance!

How great would it be to impress your friends with gravity defying hand balancing skills? Check it out here.
