Roll to Handstand Push Up Progression Pt.1


Recently, we learned how to do a Forward Roll or Roll Out of the rings as a way to come down from a Support position on the rings, or to exit safely out of a Muscle Up attempt.  In this progression series, Coach Carl will show how the roll could also be used as a skill transfer opportunity to set up into a Shoulder Stand, then a Handstand Push Up into a Handstand.

In this video, Coach Carl reviews the roll out and how to position the hips and drive them up to get into an inverted position on the rings.  Once Carl is inverted in a tucked position, he works on extending the legs one at a time, and then straddling both to use the straps to brace into a shoulder stand.
