DemoExerciseReps/SetsHow to/Cues

L Handstand Single Leg Isolation Shrugs2x2 each sideElbows locked. Hands, shoulders & hips in 1 line. Bring your foot right above and push tall from your shoulders to visually get taller. Now hold this newly gained height whilst bringing the leg back to the wall slowly.
45 Handstand Leg Isolations3x1 each sideFocus on isolation! Move 1 leg at the time only. Do not jump away from the wall. Do not bring the foot further away from the wall than the hands as a counterweight! Keep your shoulders over your hands at all times and do not arch your back!
Slide Away2x2Start 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 take off from the wall and align yourself in a straight, freestanding handstand. Come abck to the wall as one straight unit. Do not close your shoulders on the way back. Do not pull your hips during the slide away. Do not arch your back. The only position change should be in the shoulders!
Tuck Slides1x3Knees 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.
Box Tuck Single Leg Isolation1x2 each sideIn the box tuck position extend one leg out towards the ceiling. Make sure the leg stays in 1 straight line right above the hands, shoulders and hips. Keep your immobile leg fully bent! Make sure your box is high enough so your lower back does not round in the tuck position. Better use a box too high than too low!
Box Tuck Hover3x1 each sideMake sure your box is high enough so your lower back is straight and the hips are in a neutral position. Do not use the top leg as a counter balance. Instead keep it right above the hands, shoulders and hips. Here elvate your scapula and bring the weight into the fingertips. Now carefully lift the second knee and levitate it on top of the box.
Wall Tuck Jump5xHands as close as possible to the wall. Shoulders stay over hands at all times! Keep your knees together!
Partial Tuck Jumps5xStart with your shoulders over your hands and keep them there at all times. Look at your hands and keep your elbows locked. Jump with your feet on the box right behind you without moving your shoulders backwards. in a second jump align your hips with your already aligned hands and shoulders. Do not focus on holding the tuck. The goal here is only to align everything and come straight back down.
