Rest Day

After learning the bent arm, bent hip, bent leg press to handstand, we want to learn and practice a straight-arm, bent hip, bent leg press.

This press to handstand, like the bent arm - bent hip - bent leg press, is “training wheels” to the more elegant “stiff-stiff” (straight arm - bent hip -straight leg), “hollowback” (bent arm - straight hip - straight leg), and the toughest press to handstand, the “planche press” (straight arm – straight hip – straight leg).
