Lsit to Shoulder Stand

Here’s a fairly easy hand balancing skill you can practice. Its called the Lsit to Shoulder Stand.

To start with I recommend two solid platforms to keep your hands on that are raised from the ground. Big kettlebells work great for this too.

Start in an L position then tuck your legs, tip your shoulders forward and come to the shoulder stand. Then reverse it.

You can make this exercise harder by:

1) Doing more reps
2) Longer holds in any of the positions
3) Try it on the ground like this handstand from sitting.
4) Pressing up to a complete handstand from the shoulder stand.

You can reverse the positions and come back down from a handstand to sitting position as well. This skill is just slightly harder then the frogstand press.

To make this more advanced keep your arms straight then entire time. This may take a little less strength but more flexibility.

To make it much more advanced keep the legs straight the entire time. This requires much more flexibility to bring them through your arms, plus compressive ability.

To make this skill easier try it from parallel bars.

The handstand from sitting is a great hand balancing press skill no matter how you do it so start working on it.
