Handstands on Body Parts

Handstands are challenging wherever you do them, but the most challenging kind of handstands arguably are the ones we do on other human beings because balancing on limbs is way more unstable than the floor, blocks or canes! Here we present a progressive series of handstands on various body parts, ranging from an easy assisted lift to more challenging variations. Don't be discouraged if you aren't nailing these because they definitely take some practice!

Arm-to-Arm Handstand on Chest (Fwd and Rev)

Here is an inversion you can get into from bird or backfly: an arm-to-arm supported handstand balanced on the base's pecs. You can do this facing forward or reverse; reverse will require a bit of an arch from the flyer. 0:50 forward demonstration 1:29 reverse demonstration Please have a spot since we're going upside down!
