Elisabeth Rodler Posted April 5, 2017 Share Posted April 5, 2017 Dear Community, I am very glad I found this forum and I hope you can help me. I was a rhythmic gymnast for many years but retired almost 3 years ago. I have not done much exercise since then except from the basic jogging and pilates thing. However, I have started to get into handbalacing and acro lately and I have a question. I absolutely know the movement of stalder press handstand. I have been spotted various times and I can do the move in reverse. However, I lack strength tremendously. I go to gymnastics practice every other day for 1 1/2 hours at my local gym, we do basic things like handsprings and tucks and also stretch. I am still very flexible, all splits, pancake, etc. I thought I could use the last 15 minutes for handstand practice. I have searched the forum and also the internet a lot and found that probably the best exercise for the stalder press are handstand wall runs. So my plan is to do 10 controlled negative presse to remind me of the motion and then do 10 minutes of handstand wall runs for strength (rest as needed, but 10 minutes in total). Would this be a good plan? Once you have the flexibility and motion of the movement down (which I definitely do) all that is missing is the strength to press, right? So the wall runs seem perfect! Any tips on how often I should do it? ist 3x a week for 10 minutes okay if I do not really do any other max strength? Thanks! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
