Professional acrobat Yuval Ayalon performs an amazing mixed set of 40 different handstand presses.
10 each of the following:
- Stalder Presses
- Handstand Pushups
- Pike Presses
- Straddle Presses
To do just one of any of these moves is beyond most people. To string them together in this manner is amazing.
What I find particularly interesting is in doing this maximum effort set, to see how the form isn’t perfect on each one, even catching his balance by moving around on the hands several times. Something like this wouldn’t be done in a show where perfection is expected, but its amazing to see someone this good go all out.
Want to learn these presses and other hand balancing skills? Hand Balancing Made Easy is a great place to start.
Thanks to Breaking Muscle for pointing this video out to me.
Yes some wobbles etc but not short stroking them ever; when he bends his arms it nose touching the ground. An upside down hero!
