Movement of the Week /// Development Training Drill for Press Handstand
Today on the <<>> BLOG <<>> I am sharing one of my favorite training variations for developing the press handstand!
This is something I call the Seat Sliding Press Drill. This movement is performed using the seat of the Concept2 rower and really is the only reason to ever actually use the rower.
I have a few coaching cues and tips below for you on this drill and more!
~Maintain straight arms
~Stack your shoulder over your elbow and wrist
~Block away from the floor
~Set your hips in line with your shoulders with your feet elevated and toenail down pressed into the rower seat
~Squeeze your heels
~Pull the seat forward while pressing through your palms and fingertips stacking your hips over your shoulders and wrists
~Lower back to your start position in your high plank slow and controlled
~Keep your legs engaged and straight
This movement can be added into your warm up, skill work, superset into a strength piece, or even added in as a conditioning piece!
