Straddle Handstand - Gymnastics
In this lesson you will learn how to do a gymnastic straddle handstand. That's when you put your hands on the floor, shift your weight onto your hands and open your legs sideways. Don't bend you knees and don't jump into the handstand. This technique requires good balance, some shoulder and abdominal strength. Once you can do the straddle handstand, try the straddle press handstand, which is pretty much the same, but now you start from a straddle planche and lift your legs without letting your feet touch the floor.
