Press to Handstand


The handstand press movement, also known as the Olympic climb, involves starting from a hip flexion position with your hands and feet on the ground and coming up to a handstand position, keeping your back vertical and legs straight with your feet dotted. In this program we will work on the flexibility, technique and strength necessary to perform this movement.

Must know

  • The program is designed to be done twice a week, each phase includes an extra routine in case you want to do a third session.
  • We will focus on strength and technique, so you can take long rests of between 1'30'' and 3', depending on how difficult the routine is for you, although in flexibility exercises you can shorten this rest without any problem.
  • The duration of the routines is between 30 and 60 minutes.
  • Each phase has a recommended duration, but the actual duration will be the one that marks your progress and the time you need to achieve the objectives.
