Take Off to Press to Handstand
3x1
Focus on compression first. When your feet first leave the blocks keep them shoulder width apart. The goal is to push the hips up and in the direction of the anterior pelvic tilt whilst the shoulders move back in line on top of the hands. Use your hip flexors to keep as much compression as possible.
All that is left from here is to bring the legs around. Your hips and shoulders should not have to move anymore.
Place your hands shoulder width apart on the floor with your fingers facing towards the front! Lock your elbows and rotate their pits towards the front. Elevate your scapula!
Pike Press Prep
3x1



Chest to Wall Press
2x3
Draw a big circle on the wall by bringing your legs around through the deepest straddle eventually moving into a pancake position to bring your feet down., When lowering to the Stalder the most important moment is when your feet leave the wall. Ideally your shoulders should still be on top of the center of your hands and your hips in a slight anterior pelvic tilt. Use your hip flexors and compression muscles only to pull your feet away from the wall.
Resist with your shoulders to keep them open the entire time. Use your back muscles to pull on your hips. Prevent them from slipping into a posterior pelvic tilt for as long as possible.
On the way back up try to reestablish the straight back and even slight anterior pelvic tilt as early as possible.

Resist with your shoulders, use your back to pull your hips into an anterior pelvic tilt and push your index finger into the floor. Look at the floor in between your hands.
Engage your legs! Lock your knees, point your feet and squeeze the water out of them.
