Press to Handstand
Workouts and drills
Dedicated FB group
This challenge will help you better understand the press to handstand movement and help you achieve it or at least, bring you way closer to it.
To press to handstand requires a combination of strength, flexibility and coordination. That said, it can still be achieved even if one of those three components needs more work than the others.
With the right approach and as long as you’re willing to put in the work, you can make this the next progression on your handstand journey.
At the end of this challenge, your handstands will be way better and you will find it easier to keep your balance.
