Only when your feet can not come any lower lean your shoulders towards the front sligthly and allow your lower back to round and the hips to drop.
Go as slow as possible and try to stay in control the entire time! If you feel like you are going to low and you are about to lose control: Stop and simply try to freeze in place!
Keep your elbows locked, elevate your scapula and straighten your knees!

Hit the Half Stalder Position properly in each rep. Lift your legs, depress your scapula, look up and show a long neck!
Fully lock your elbows. This is a straight arm skill! Treat it as such!

Bring your legs around drawing a big circle until you get to a pancake like position. Use your back muscles to stabilize your hips.
Resist with your shoulders and primarily use your hip flexors to pull your feet off the wall. You can allow your lower back to round slightly in each rep. Do not lean your shoulders more towards the front as you pull on your legs.
