Roll to Handstand Push Up Progression Pt.2


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 demonstrates the next step of performing a Handstand Push Up after rolling into a shoulder stand.  By rolling up into a straddle position and wrapping the legs around the straps, the legs and hips can be used as an assistance to pull the athlete up into a Handstand.  Depending on the amount of support and balance required, the athlete can choose to wrap around the strap from either way.
