One-Arm Handstand Progression Pt.1


The One-Arm handstand is not only a feat of balance and positional strength, but it also great skill transfer potential by training your upper body's ability to resist (an generate) rotation while pushing.

In this video, Coach Carl demonstrates how to perform a one-arm handstand by starting with a regular handstand with chest against the wall.  The key is to start with both hands close together directly under the shoulder.  Next, lead with the feet and lean over to one side and stack your center of mass over one hand.  This should unload your other hand and allow you to lift it up.
