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, Carl demonstrates how to kip and kick up into a handstand directly from the roll, without having to pause at the bottom to hook and pull with the legs. Carl first uses a roll-in to kick-out drill to get the feel of the kipping and following through with the kick. Then, progressively aim higher until fully inverted and push up to handstand. Practice catching yourself at the top with the legs in a straddle, outside wrap, and finally the inside wrap on the straps.
