Hi all, I have quite a tough time doing straddle handstands. While I feel solid in a normal two arm HS, when I start doing straddle my bodyline doesn't want to "stick". Is it a matter of straddle flexibility, motor control or maybe both? Here's a video of me from todays practice: 0:12 - 0:24 - spreding the legs twice to straddle HS, this is my maximal range of motion. I focus on keeping the pelvis still, hovever my feet travel in front of my body. 0:25 - 0:49 - here I'm doing two small weight shifts - first to the right, second to the left. It's not visible very well in the video, since shifts are quite small. Do you have some tips on how to correct this position? I want to start playing with one arm handstands, yet because of the weaknesses in straddle I don't feel stable enough. Started doing splits recently (and they help little by little), but maybe there are some other clever ideas? Thanks, Pawel
