Assisted Press Handstand Lift-Off (Partner Drill)
It can be a challenge to feel the moment of lift off in a press handstand, that moment where your feet float away from the floor can feel like a complete mystery even for someone quite strong and possibly even with a solid handstand. The lift off moment is the culmination of a unique combination of shoulder strength/position ( pooosh!), hip/spinal mobility ( hollow pike compression) and timing. It can be hard to find this moment/ engagement/ position since you've never been there, its a lot of exertion and it happens at a particular moment. This partner drill is a great way to slow that moment down, reduce the weight of the lift off and possibly find the feeling of "floating" and accumulate some very relevant time under tension.

This entrance to RH2H takes advantage of the flyers hips already being elevated to around the height needed for their handstand. While most entrances to handstands involve a flyer needing to press up on top of a higher surface this entrance allows the flyer a rare oppurtunity for a flyer to come down into a handstand. As such the details of how a base can provide support and smooth pathway for the flyer as the come down are essential for making this entrance consistent.
