Look after yourself and only do what feels safe enough. Rest long enough between sets to be fresh but short enough not to get cold!
|Crow Walk Away
|Walk away from the wall after the chest to wall handstand. Skip the wall crow position on the way down and take at least 6 steps with your hands.
|Knees touch the wall. Knees stay together. Hands shoulder width apart! Look at your hands at all times. Do not round your lower back. Do not close shoulders.
|Half Slide Away
|Start with your body in a perfectly straight line. Feet are the only thing touching the wall. Look at your hands and push out tall. Elbows locked. Move your shoulders to the front and slide the feet down the wall. When you are about to fall over stop and push your feet back up on the wall back to your starting position. Do not pull your hips during this movement. Do not arch your back. The only position change should be in the shoulders!

|45 Handstand Leg Isolation to Tuck
|3x1 each side
|One step at the time. First hit the straight handstand then start moving into the tuck. Try going as slow as possible. Resist and keep your shoulders open and lower back straight for as long as possible.
|L Handstand Pulls
|Start by aligning your shoulders over your hands. Use your back to pull your hips over your hands and shoulders.
|Bench Zombie to Slow Lower
|Focus on the Bench Zombie technique first! Then focus on working against gravity. Slow the downwards momentum down as much as possible. It is normal that your legs might drop to the floor like heavy stones during the first attempts. Over time you will identify and then train the muscles needed to control this drill!
