Scapular elevated at all times. Look at hands at all times. Walk as close as possible to the wall. Do not allow your stomach to touch the wall. Feet only!

Isolate the movement into 1 leg at the time. Align the working leg with the already perfectly aligned hands, shoulders & hips. Elevate your scapula fully at all times. Do not round your back or slip into a posterior pelvic tilt when you bring the leg back to the wall.

Focus 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!

Move 1 leg at the time only. Do not lean against the wall. Insted only gently carasse the wall. Do not use the immobile leg as a counter weight. Increase the distance between your hands and the wall for increased difficulty.

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.

"In 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!

Focus on isolation! Move 1 leg at the time only. Do not jump away from the box. Do not arch your back using the leg as a counterweight! Keep your shoulders over your hands at all times. Do not round your back when you bring the first knee back to the box!

Externally rotate your legs. Do not arch your back. Do not sink into your shoulders!

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 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!

First do your regular slide away and then open into a straddle. Do not drop the legs. Instead carefully carry them down. Do not try to outrun your balance!

Start with your shoulders already over the center of your hands and keep them there at all times.

Start with your shoulders right above your hands and your knees close to the hands. Keep your arms locked and jump into a tuck handstand. Align your hips with your already aligned hands and shoulders. Keep your knees low by your chest not to fall over. Do not focus on holding the tuck. The only goal here is to align everything!

Keep your shoulders over your hands at all times. The goal is to touch the wall only after the knees lock out! Look at your hands at all times and come as close to the wall as possible.
