Handstand arched palm

Recommended Posts

Liam Cooper 150668

Hi everyone

I've been training handstand against the wall for some time now but struggle to keep my hands flat. I can keep them flat when performing a free standing handstand, just not against the wall. My wrist flexibility is pretty decent so I don't think that's the issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

This is a common tendency when the traps are not enough strong, the fingers are over squeezed and the palm angle it is reduced.

Alessandro, it's not the issue I was expecting but hey, I'll try and strengthen the traps and work on shorter handstand holds with flatter palms.

your help is much appreciated, thanks

Would love to see your full line in your handstand @Liam Cooper 150668  Are you currently following the GB handstand courses as well?
